The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm most passionate about "living life to it's fullest," so to speak....this means to me being authentic, and knowing what satisfies me, what brings me peace and pleasure, what makes me and others happy--knowing at the end of the day that I've had satisfying moments, meaningful moments and that maybe I've brought that to someone else, too.
I typically spend my leisure time
Being physically active. Top three ways: beach volleyball (it's a passion of mine), walking/running my dog, outdoor activities. I also love to read, play guitar or piano, cook, spend time with my neices, have dinner with friends, and in the winter I love to watch movies at home with a bottle of wine and good company. I'm currently going for my certification in Animal Massage and Energy Therapy, so I'm spending lots of time with, well, animals!
The most influential person in my life has been
There isn't just one. Really....top 5: Kindness, emotional maturity, authenticity,positive sense of humor, loyalty.
The first thing people notice about me
I have no idea...probably that I'm unassuming.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Every day I read one page from a book called "be". Every page offers a suggestion to "be", e.g., "Be Strong", or "Be Resilient" and then a quote that pertains. I try to integrate one thing each day, and hopefully some of it will stick permanently...it's very positive and inspiring.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My health.
- My friends and family/those who love and care about me.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Again...it depends on the situation...in a social situation, I wish people wouldn't underestimate my intelligence, and in a work situation, I wish people would notice my sense of humor more...
