The one thing I am passionate about...
To be in the moment and really appreciate every day, to be engaged and living life fully. There are so many blessings in this world, I try to be present to experience, share and cherish as many as I can. The little things aren?t so little, and ?everyday? people are not! I enjoy helping others through a variety of ways and look forward to giving back more now that I have time. While this might sound clich�, it is not: it?s a treasure and a mission.
I typically spend my leisure time
Exercise, especially outdoors, is fantastic. I love the ocean, being in it, on it or near it. Tennis, swimming, golf?I LOVE golf. It?s great exercise and can be great competition. Dancing is another fave that?s loads of fun and good exercise. So many great activities! I also love listening to music, theater, good films, and lots of reading. All of those are great with friends as well. Travel is something I plan to do a lot more. I?d love to have a great road partner.
The most influential person in my life has been
Chemistry. There?s no formula for it: If you?re honest with yourself, and earnest in your actions, when you see and talk to someone, you just know right away. You can determine honesty, integrity and lot of other traits just by having a conversation. This is what makes looking at photos such a challenge...you can't get that right off the bat. Kindness is paramount, but then so too are several other qualities including authenticity, sense of humor, and sense of wonder.
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm strong in a quiet way. Not by non-verbal communication, but just by a sense that I can handle myself in most situations, and that I truly care about people. People just seem to pick up on this.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I just re-read Eckhart Tolle?s ?A New Earth?, a spiritual guide to help you live you life more fully and in the moment. It guides you to really seeing the value of living in the moment. Personally it brought me to really think about what is important in my life. I am much richer for the experience.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children
- My life so far
- Being able to see the beauty all around me
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I have a keen sense of humor, and I love to share it! I?m a little quiet and observant around new folks, but that doesn?t mean I don?t have a sharp wit and love to laugh. You?ve just got to laugh at some of the things in this life, and it?s even better with someone else.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Dependable, Genuine, Passionate
A little more about me
I was born in Texas but have lived in Hawaii for my adult life, so I guess that makes me a Texan and a kama'aina! There?s a lot to like about both places, as I?m sure there is about so many yet-to-be visited locales. I would consider relocating for the right match. At this point in my life as a happy, content woman, I am excited to be in the moment and see what this experience brings. I am open to great conversation, fun times and hopefully sparking some good chemistry with a special partner. Let?s see where it goes, and I can?t wait to meet you.
