The topic of essence came up again in book club. We already discussed what we thought the Essence of a Person is and our own essence. This time we were given a week to complete an assignment. The assignment was to find a video clip, song, music video, commercial etc. that is an example of our essence. This assignment was the hardest assignment I have ever been given. I really wanted to do justice to the assignment and I put hours of thought into it.
I knew right away what song best represented my essence. As the week went on about three or four more ideas popped into my head. I could not decide what one piece of media could best describe me? For a minute I felt my essence was changing which is why I couldn’t find one perfect example that represents my essence. Then I thought perhaps the essence of a person is so large that it can’t be represented in one thing. Thinking of my life at this point I found the media that I feel best represents my essence at this time. When I had the floor I told the group when the group started I felt the essence of me was love, which I feel is true. I told them that I felt the video clip best represents me because of my outlook on life and because a lot of the points made in the video I have experienced in my life.
This video titled “Dream Motivational Video” by Mateusz M, I originally saw on louisvdv.com. The first time I saw it, I was so energized by it and its many truths, which I have come to know as I walk down my path. Those truths address what it takes to make a dream a reality.
