The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about living life to the fullest and making every attempt to enjoy each day as it comes. I live very much in the moment, in the right here right now because I recognize I have no control over tomorrow nor am I promised an opportunity to see tomorrow.
I typically spend my leisure time
My leisure time is my time to relax and be spontaneous. My day to day is very hectic and can be stressful so leisure time is when I splurge for myself. I enjoy the outdoors very much. I am a lover of sunshine and do what I can to be outdoors as often as possible. Whether a walk in the park or some other outdoor activity, I enjoy fresh air and sunshine. Being in or near water soothes my spirit.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is genuinely considerate of others and is strong, yet sensitive and supportive. I think, live and love with my whole heart first and foremost. I enjoy being around people who are caring and dependable.
The first thing people notice about me
My sense of humor tends to peek through when I'm comfortable. I am rather quick witted and it makes for great conversation more often then not.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man. It was funny of course because Steve Harvey is probably one of the funniest people I have ever known. It was about how women typically over think and make things more complicated than they need to be in most relationships. I liked the simplicity of his advice and how it just seemed to make sense. No idea if I will ever be able to master the technique, but it was a good read.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am most thankful for my daughter. She is 22 years old and has made me very proud with her life choices. She is a remarkable young lady who deserves the absolute best that life has to offer.
- I am equally thankful for my family, especially my mom. She's an amazing woman who has sacrificed and lived a life committed to her beliefs. She has taught my siblings and her grand children how life should be and how to love, forgive and not give up on yourself.
- I am also thankful for life and love. I am blessed to have experienced both and understand they both require work, dedication and patience in order to grow and develop.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish people would notice that I am genuinely an easy going, uncomplicated woman. People judge me based on my appearance and assume I am this complex diva with a list of demands and requirements a mile long. I am a mild mannered and rather straight forward woman.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Easy-Going, Good listener, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I enjoy sports, mostly football and basketball. I love the sunshine so I try to spend as much time as possible outdoors. I am an easy going, mild mannered, self confident, independent woman. It would be ideal to meet someone capable and willing to be "the man" without all of the nonsense and pretense. Someone who just knows what to do, when and how to do it without needing to be asked or worse, told. I don't play games and am very forth coming. My friends joke with me that I do not have a poker face. If I think it you can typically see it on my face. That leaves little room for uncertainty and dishonesty, two things I dislike.
