The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about MANY things. First, I am not fashionista, but I have a passion for fashion, looking good in what I wear and accessorize with. Also, if I weren't working corporate HR, I definitely see myself in Interior Design. I have a natural niche, a keen eye for interior designing whether designing extravagently or on a budget AND tastefully. I also have a passion for the arts stemming from medling in pottery, water to oil painting, to strolling a local art museum and analyzing the messaging of the art piece and what inspired the artist and how it connects with me. Other passions are family, dancing and dessert.
I typically spend my leisure time
During my leisure time, I enjoy gardening if the weather permits. There's something about gardening (without gloves) that is invigorating and calming. I also love to be out and about - whether for a nice drive into the city or countryside, walking around the lakeside community taking up the surroundings to having a pajama day where I'm in pajamas all day at home, cooking, baking and watching movies - just relaxing and doing nothing but enjoying family time or even "alone-me" time.
The most influential person in my life has been
Most important quality I am looking for in a person, is their genuine overall character, a genuine friendship/connection and is mature-minded. Everything else is secondary and will come to fruition in time.
The first thing people notice about me
First thing people notice about me is my bright and sincere smile.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Captivating" by John & Stasi Eldredge which sends a sincere message emphasizing one's heart matters more than anything else in all creation...a woman who is truly captivating.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for many things, but because I have to narrow it down to 3 things I am most thankful for, I am thankful for my God and faith. I'm NOT a religious person, but I believe there is a God, a holy spirit. Through the many trials and challenges I've been through from childhood to present, I thank God for allowing me to awaken the next morning to move forward and that what doesn't kill me, will only make me stronger. Through him all things are possible, if we only ask for his help, forgiveness and guidance.
- Secondly, I am thankful for my friends. Their unwavering support & love no matter how apart or close we are, they've never let me down in times of need no matter what the reason and without question.
- Third but not least, I am thankful for family including my English bulldog. They complete me no matter the chaos and drama that fills our home life; nevertheless, it all seems to calm down at the end of the day (if not at the end of the day, the end of a few days) and this is when I realize I wouldn't have it any other way. "Life is too short to sweat the small stuff" and I'm learning this more, more to be true with every passing day.
