The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about living in the moment, paying attention and being true to myself. I am also passionate about helping those less fortunate by practicing Random Acts of Kindness on a consistent basis. I am passionate about being a good friend.
I typically spend my leisure time
I most enjoy being near, in or on top if the H20. I find that the ocean truly does have natural healing powers. I also enjoy being with others and I especially enjoy hosting various gatherings, both intimate types and larger gathers, I do enjoy working out on a regular basis especially any type of full body activity. One of the greatest lessons that I have learned in the last 5 years is the value of taking time to play on a regular basis.
The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quailty that I am looking for in a female companion is her ability and willingness to get 'naked' in front of me and with me. I speak not of the physical realm, but of the emotional, mental and spiritual realms. A close second is someone with an 'open' heart who is willing to risk getting hurt. Personally, I firmly believe that it is better to love and risk getting hurt, than to not love at all.
The first thing people notice about me
The first thing that people notice about me is that I look them in the eye. My engaging persona comes across right away. People feel at ease with and around me. People tell me that they feel safe with me. My smile is contagious. I am naturally and genuinely interested in other people which leads to a connection on some level. I am authentic & genuine; people recognize this and tap into it. My eyes tell the story well. I am blessed with 'good' energy. I am grateful that my inner and outer energy is aligned and in balance with each other. I have "presence."
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Way Of The Peaceful Warrior" I took my time reading this book so I could fully absorb the principles & lessons shared within and there are many. Some are subtle & some not so subtle. I cried, I laughed, I got angry, but perhaps most importantly of all, I went deep inside myself to discover 'things' that have always been there. I am grateful that I no longer look outside myself. >>> I often have 2 or more books going at once. One is usually Spiritual in nature, another is for fun & often a sports related book. I am in the midst of reading "When The Game Was Ours" The story of Larry Bird & Magic Johnson written wJackie MacMullan
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am grateful for my parents, my daughter and my six siblings.
- I am grateful for The Serenity Prayer and how it plays out in my life.
- I am grateful for the adversity that I have faced & for the lessons that I have l learned.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
For me, this is not even in the equation.
Friends Describe me as
Energetic, Generous, Genuine, Kind
A little more about me
I am seeking a woman who has done the majority of her 'work'. She has worked through the majority of old scars and wounds from her childhood and past relationships as I have done the majority of my work. Thus, we would be beginning our relationship as equals. A woman who has reached a place of healing that truly puts her past where it belongs, in the past and thus ensures that her heart is open to receive love to a depth that she has never experienced before. Finally, I do not seek a woman who needs a good man, but instead, I seek a woman who wants a good man in her life, just as I do not need a good woman in my life, I want a good woman.
