What’s Your Personal “Brand?”

I played a Facebook “game” several weeks ago.  I asked the people who follow my feed to describe me in just one word.  I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I was humbled, and a little surprised, to see that most of the people commented that I was kind, compassionate, giving, or some variant of that sentiment.

I got to thinking about that, and realized that to some extent, each of us has a personal “brand.”   I try to keep my blogs and my Facebook posts upbeat and positive.  There’s enough negativity in the world that I don’t feel a need to add to it.  My opinion may differ from yours on any topic from gay marriage to vaccinations, but it’s doubtful that anything I have to say is going to change your mind.

Mama always said, “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”  I was well into adulthood before I realized how those words to live by would shape who I have become.

Do you know what your personal “brand” is?  It’s a little scary to ask the question to find out.  I’m glad that I did, though, and I’m going to do my best to live up to that brand.
