Thank you for the responses to the question on my last post.  You have given me a lot to think about!  I have now published the comments so you can see what each other came up with.  I was never expecting to see words such as vivacious, dynamic, or exciting spring to people's minds, as that isn't me, but they are traits that I admire in others.

The reason for my question wasn't to be narcissistic, it had a much more practical reason than that.  I am trying to find out if I am portraying the essence of the 'real' me on my blog.  Judging by your comments, I think I am coming across as I want to be seen although I would love to be more inspirational to you all. From now on I am going to be less solemn and despondent as nobody wants to come and visit a worrywart.

The words that came up more than once were creative, sensitive, thoughtful and kind and I guess that is me in a nutshell (my positive traits anyhow, we won't mention my negative ones!)  My favourite and most unexpected description of me had to be 'as delicate as a flower' submitted by the lovely Michela.  Thank you Michela that really made my day!


  1. I'm glad you found the whole exercise a positive one Simone! :)

  2. Well I didn't cheat and look at the comments below......I would say 'thoughtful'

  3. Glad you enjoyed all your comments, Simone and found the exercise a useful one:)

  4. Hi Simone sorry I missed taking part in your Perception post. I agree with all the comments made and have always thought that you post very sincerely and that you have a lovely genuine way of reflecting on your life that makes me feel that I know you so well even though we have never met. I never mind if you are feeling a little solemn because that is a reflection of who you are on that day and is as it should be.
    I still have your beautiful hand written card on my mantelpiece and when I pass it each day I think of my new friend who I have never met yet I know so much about and enjoy having in my life. Just keep on being who you are xxx

  5. I think all of the comments reflected a part of you, Simone. Glad you were pleased!xx

  6. Sorry for getting back to your post so late, you're welcome Simone, I really think so! :)
