my family and friends Being able to laugh when the going gets tough: One thing I found out about me on the Appalachian Trail is that I can find the funnies even when I'm soaked and cold and my ankles are rubbed raw. I like that I can often smile my way through difficulties and find the bright side
My friends: I don't have a large number of close friends, but I do know there are a lot of good people, near and far, who I can count on
Being a nice person: I'm hardly perfect, but it's good to know in my heart that I'm a kind person. I'd never intentionally hurt anyone. I don't believe in being mean. I hate to see anyone cry and love to see people smile. I may be a bit shy sometimes and not the best at socializing, but I genuinely appreciate and care about people.
