The one thing I am passionate about...
"I am thankful for my past, passionate for the present, and hopeful for the future." One of my many life philosophies. I am passionate about living for the "now" in life. Yes, I do have plans for my future, but we are never garenteed that. So take the best out of every day and enjoy every moment as if it were your last.
I typically spend my leisure time
I highly enjoy just getting out and traveling to random places when I can. I know there is more beyond my borders and I want to see the world's beauty. I also like going to try new things. Like rock climbing, hiking, etc. As dumb as it may sound, I do have a bucket list. There is a lot that I have yet to live for. But having somebody else to be there and share those expierences with would make them all even better.
The most influential person in my life has been
A lot of people would probably say loyalty, honesty, communication, trust, etc. But to me, those are all givens. The thing I look for most is support and encouragement. I have been in relationships where I have let guys talk me down and degrade me. I will not stand for that any longer. You need to support somebody in their decisions, encourage their progression and help to celebrate thier accomplishments. That makes for a great relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
That I put others before myself all the time. I like to be surrounded by positive and happy people, so I will do pretty much anything to make them smile.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Shack. It's about a guy losing his daughter to a serial killer, but they never find her. Once he returns to the cabin where it is believed the killer took his daughter, crazy things start to happen. He then meets the father, the son, and the holy spirit and they teach him a lot about life and letting go and finding comfort in it all. It's a deep book that really makes you think.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My son.
- All the soliders standing on the front line. I am an Air Force brat, so I appreciate ALL branches of our military. If you are a solider reading this right now, thank you for all that you do from the bottom of my heart.
- My friends and family for being so supportive of me and my decisions and wanting what is best for me.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That being a mom isn't as easy as it looks. Trying to find a balance between work, my son, and a personal life was not that easy. But once I found it, it was smooth sailing.
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Hard Working, Optimistic, Sweet
A little more about me
Family comes first. Always. Otherwise, I am just a good ol' country girl exploring her options. The selection around my area is quite dull and not exactly as goal oriented, ambitious, and independant as I am and am looking for. I need/want somebody that is driven in life and actualy has potentual. Somebody with a plan that is stable and posses and lives all the great qualities, values and morals that I would like my son to observe and learn from. My son is my world, so if you don't like kids, then I'm sorry, it's not going to work. I've already been down that road and I wish never to return to it.
