Power Sentences


Write a power sentence for each year of your life.

You can’t be serious. Write about something significant about each year of my life? I can’t remember what happened yesterday let alone what happened of significance when I was eleven. Or look up something important that happened in the world for each of the past 61 years? That is WORK!

I will tell you one thing that happened the day I turned 14 years old. That was the day President Kennedy was assassinated. We were in school at an assembly when it was announced. It was a miserable birthday that I will never forget. I sat in the cold on my back porch in my new sweater and cried that evening. It was a very significant event in my life.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    I agree with you Marie a complete waste of time and energy. You are 61 ,,I am 72..I would never get it finished

    I can see why that date will always stand out in your memory. How sad.

  3. The Hook says:

    That is an interesting – and daunting – challenge!

    It would seem more fitting for all but the most youthful of bloggers to have suggested writing a sentence for each decade, or era, of one’s life. Hats off to you for not abandoning the challenge but actually challenging it!
