The one thing I am passionate about...
Of my many passions I believe the one I hold most dear is my desire to continue to improve myself and the world at least a little bit for the better. However I have to admit that I have not been as successful as I would like to have been at this point in my life. Although I feel this way, I still remain the eternal optimist.
I typically spend my leisure time
I hate to admit it, but the absolute truth is without a woman in my life most of my leisure time is spent at home. Usually you will find me either watching television, a movie, working with my computer, reading or working in and around my house. I am definitely a ?home body? at this time.
The most influential person in my life has been
There are of course several, however I think the most important are love, compassion, and understanding. Not just for me and her but of the whole planet. I truly believe it is much easier to hate than love, to stand firm rather than try to understand.
The first thing people notice about me
I would think my shyness would be right there at the top of the list. I actually decided many years ago to take a huge cut in pay to take a retail/management job where I was forced to deal with the public. Extremely stressful for me in the mornings, once I was there my ?people pleaser? personality thrived in the environment. The interesting thing was even after ten years on that job once I got away from it my shyness returned.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Most of my reading is of the educational nature, however when I rarely do read for pleasure I prefer John Grisham?s books. The Firm was my favorite because though all of his books are so difficult to put down, The Firm was my first and still my favorite.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family
- My business
- My friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Sometimes I wish that people could see that I am one of the nicest, most generous, most understanding people in the world. When I genuinely care about and love someone those attributes increase to a much higher level.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Ambitious, Caring, Good listener
A little more about me
I would have to say the one thing I would like for you to know about me is that my one and only marriage failed primarily due to me. I worked too much and in that I neglected her. Since then I have spent a great deal of time reading and learning how to better myself, and properly treat a woman so I and we don?t fail again.
