Sum up your life in one word.

As I have become addicted to TED talks and TED conversations I have started to see in myself and you the qualities which are our makeup. A great thread was what do our favourite TED talks say about us http://www.ted.com/conversations/2291/what_do_your_favourite_ted_tal.html

I just watched a Jamie Oliver vid on Youtube and realised how passionate he is about his live. So for me summing up my life in one word is PASSION!

    Apr 30 2011: "Aimless" Thus far

    When I consider what others have accomplished in the same time period as I have had I am certain that my life has lacked focus, direction and purpose.
    But I aim to change that :)

    Apr 26 2011: I'm gonna go with FULFILLED. I know it's kind of boring but I do feel that I live a fulfilled life. That's not to say that there isn't more to do or that I can't be better but learning to live in the now and loving it has brought with it the most fantastic feeling of freedom. (wow, that sounds rather hippy dippy ;)
    Thanks for this Lee. It's fun! (this is my first TED convo!)

      Apr 26 2011: I would say to be Fulfilled is an amazing thing. If we could all say that we would all be in a great place. Welcome by the way.

      Apr 26 2011: I like undefinable. It's not a copout. You just have to give it a chance. Besides, what's the alternative? Definable? yuck! :)

      • thumb
        Apr 26 2011: I don't know Tigger(Winnie the Pooh?)..is his life splendiferous too? Tell him he is more than welcome to visit my sanctuary any time...wait a minute..just looked it up..he's already here..I am he..he is me.. "Tigger is amongst the most exuberant creatures in the 100 Acre Wood, and his most stand out and well-known feature is his very springy tail". Splendiferous!!! yes indeed SPLENDIFEROUS!!!!

          Apr 26 2011: Pooh it is. It's good to quote from Pooh. Tigger was my second professional acting role. I loved playing him. Kind of life imitating art really.

      lol. I would understand "water" but milk? lol
      • thumb
        Apr 25 2011: White, fluid, nice but not an absolute necessity, an important ingredient in many wonderful dishes.

        Alone milk doesn't bring much to a party, but mix it up with some other treats and milk can take part in cake, cookies,sauces, any number of treats!

        I'm not meant to be cried over when I spill (or stumble a bit).

          Apr 26 2011: Hi Nicholas..Wish I had Chris' expertise..he says he is a brevity expert..I need to learn that. I will read all his comments every day until I get it. Very critical skill..he conveys so much in a simple phrase that allows us to explore the idea within our selves.. a wonderful skill..glad we "GOT CHRIS" here at TED

      Apr 25 2011: Martim, good grief, how can you be a TED translator and organiser and have boredom as the one word that sums up your life?
    • thumb
      Apr 26 2011: Boredom is a choice. There are soooooooo many things in life to explore.
      Why would you choose boredom?????
      • thumb
        Apr 28 2011: Colleen, there are times when just good will isn't enough. There are psycologycal, social and time-related barriers to be broken. That takes time. If you've spent a great deal of time in boredomness, it's not that easy to break that routine.
        • thumb
          Apr 28 2011: I guess you're right...it's not that easy to break the routine. I haven't ever been bored in my entire life, and I don't understand it at all. Thanks for your reply. You became a TED translator and organizer in an effort to break the routine? You speak 5 languages, and here you are conversing on TED. Seems like the "routine" is being broken? I appreciate you:>)
