The most influential person in my life has been
My initial gut reaction to this question was "fun"! I enjoy spending time with people who laugh easily and like to do a variety of things -- someone a bit spontaneous, not uptight or negative. I'm not looking for someone that likes to play all the time though -- work, relationships, family, responsibility are important -- just no reason why we can't have fun in the midst of it all!
The first thing people notice about me
Hmmm??? Would love to ask others what they think before I answer this, but I think I would say -- my ability to connect quickly and easily -- I think I have a positive energy.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Blue Like Jazz...great, personal musings on faith by Donald Miller -- A movie is being made on this book, also.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My relationships -- I have many fabulous genuine loyal friendships and great family relationships.
- My work - I am passionate about my work and find so much joy in it, because it makes a difference in people's lives every day. I love teaching, speaking, being creative and helping others get healthy and find the life they were created to live. I have made great sacrifices to do what I love.
- Creation -- I realize this is pretty broad, but I am so thankful for animals, especially dogs --they make me so happy. And, for flowers, mountains, ocean, beautiful food exactly as it comes out of the ground. I just really appreciate the beauty that is around me in nature and all the unique creatures there are in the world.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Over time, people usually say that I have a lot of wisdom.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Genuine, Loyal, Passionate
A little more about me
I look forward to finding someone to share life with -- I like spending time with a partner. I value the input of another's wisdom on a day-to-day basis. And, It's fun to find creative ways to love. I really love to dance with someone who can lead...(or who wants to learn)...and can have fun on the dance floor. On a more serious note, I missed out on having my own kids, but would be thrilled to have kids to love on one way or another (yours or ours.)
