The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about liking myself (for once), leading a healthy lifestyle, exercise, sharing the practice of tai chi, gardening, going for peaceful walks, learning to play the guitar, and maintaining friendships.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy listening to soft rock, spending time with friends, working out, gardening and going for walks in the woods. I'd really like to spend some time dancing with someone special.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a person who is compassionate, warm, honest and has a love for life and the outdoors. I am looking for someone who can be a friend first, enjoys the simple pleasures of country living, and likes to spend time taking leisurely walks and engage in conversation about the world around us, or spend quiet time doing nothing but enjoying each other's company.
The first thing people notice about me
That I have the ability to start a conversation with just about anybody, I have an open mind, a wide variety of interests and I make friends easily.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I enjoy reading a variety of historical works and books on some of the wonders of the world. I also enjoy reading self-improvement/healthy lifestyle books and books about the natural world. "Finding Beauty in a Broken World" is an interesting work on how everything around us exists in a mosaic, how there is conflicting tensions and priorities, and yet in nature, this mosaic or interconnectedness works in ways we do not begin to understand. I found it most facinating.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my good health.
- I am thankful for my close friends.
- I am thankful for my love of the outdoors, staying fit, gardening, and music.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a very subtle but ironic sense of humor.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Good listener, Outgoing, Spontaneous
A little more about me
I have only recently come to the realization that I have never given myself permission to like myself. I had never taken the time to really get to know myself and like me, I've been busy doing for others. I am beginning to find that I should be my first best friend. With the help of a close friend and mentor, change has taken place recently and the effect it has had on me has been profound. It is so much easier to enjoy my self first, and everything else is second. It seems to make all the other things so much more pleasureable. So, it would be really nice to share the new me with someone.
