The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about dogs and i foster some in my place until they get adopted. I also love dancing, biking, being active in general. I also like the arts, especially music. I like anything international, whether it's travel, culture, food and in general learning about the richness of different cultures. I always make time to spend with my family and friends because it resources me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy taking my dog to the dog park, biking, dancing, exercising, and spending time with family and friends. I love to cook. I paint on canvas throughout the year about a variety of nature and abstract topics. A happy hour is also good. I listen to music from all over the world (Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, and other languages).
The most influential person in my life has been
Kindness- For example. i like a man who goes out and helps the senior citizens on their block shovel their driveway. Honesty. I think that robbing someone of the truth is one of the worst things to do to anyone.Here are other attributes, positive, easy going, healthy, a good sense of humor, generous and bright. Someone who is comfortable in their own skin.
The first thing people notice about me
I think people notice that I'm not from the States by the way i dress and look in general. Once they get to know me, people notice that I have many different attributes. I speak three languages, I had a catering business, I love to cook french and other ethnic dishes, I paint.
The last book I read and enjoyed
David Balducci's "Absolute Power". It's a page turner, a legal thriller and it was great having on a plane ride back from the West Coast. It made the 9 hour trip seem so short and i actually ended wishing i had more time on the plane! That was a first! Other than this, i read mostly personal and professional growth books. Next on my list is Malcom Gladwell's "Blink"
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family and friends.
- Health and that includes physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual health and my focus on fostering each of these elements
- My fun loving disposition which allows me to look at life with a great sense of humor
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Because I don't come out and openly talk about all that i have accomplished, people are surprised to learn all that I have had quite an interesting life. I've met many presidents and heads of state and traveled to many countries.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Easy-Going, Genuine, Optimistic
A little more about me
I lead my life based on my values including honesty, spirituality, health and drive. I like to have fun and stay active.I would like to look back at my life in old age and have lived a succession of fun and meaningful moments with the stuff in between. For that reason, i prioritize time with people i hold dear in my heart.
