The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about trying to find happiness and balance in my personal and professional life. Happiness to me is being able to provide a nice environment for my daughter, and being able to spend time with her, doing the things that she enjoys , going to the movies, shopping for her, etc. Happiness also means having a job that I enjoy going to every day. Also, I have changed my lifestyle over the last couple of years,��I now live a much healthier life from a physical standpoint, which helps me to be happier in my daily life. I believe that mental and physical health go hand in hand.
I typically spend my leisure time
My favorite leisure time activity is spending time with my daughter. Also, I love going out to dinner, or to the movies or a museum. When I dine out, I love to have sushi or Mexican food though when I am home, I can cook just about anything! In terms of movies, I have pretty eclectic tastes, ranging from Big-budget productions to Independent films,the only exception is horror films. And I love working out ,I usually try to exercise at least 3 times a week. I also like weekend getaways to places like Santa Barbara and Carmel
The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quality I am looking for in another person is the ability to communicate well, and a willingness to work toward understanding one another. I believe that communication is essential in a relationship, either to solve an issue, or more importantly, to avoiding having an issue in the first place. I know it's only asking for one quality but also wanted to mention how important it is for me to laugh and I believe it's one of those contagious things that make a relationship more fun:)
The first thing people notice about me
The first thing that people notice is my accent. I was born and raised in Paris, and have been living in the US for over 13 years now. Funnily enough, many people have a difficult time figuring that my accent is French!And even though it's appearance I still wanted to mention that people usually say that I look better than on the pictures:)
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was " The Secret". It's about being able to envision what you want in life and "projecting" it into the Universe. It is about the power of positive thinking or at least that would be my interpretation. I really liked it, as I try to have a positive outlook on life. I had seen the DVD last year, but I just read the book. But I totally agree with the parts about positive and negative energy. I just finished the series of "the girl with a dragon tattoo", much more enjoyes the books than the movie.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Everyday I spend with my daughter.
- That my loved ones and myself are healthy
- My job which allows me to take care fo my daughter and myself.
