The one thing I am passionate about...
Learning, laughing ... enjoying life. I try to live in the moment and go for what I want in life, bringing my full energy to everything I do. I think thinking is fun and like to be challenged. I�m girlie and cry in the movies. I think happiness is my responsibility and I hold myself accountable for loving my life. I love my job and am proud of my career -- corporate leadership development and HR. I'm passionate about having great friends, good conversations, adventure and intimacy. Oh, and I love music.
I typically spend my leisure time
Talking with friends over good food and drinks, nesting at home, doing yoga or spinning, going to movies, practicing mindfulness and working down my to-do list.
The most influential person in my life has been
A combination of humor, intelligence, curiosity and sensitivity. Someone who is ambitous/passionate, but is in touch with the kid within. I am looking for a man with great range. He is enough like me to appreciate who I am and different enough from me to expand who I am. Is smart and likes to think about things. Is relationship oriented - not just romantically, but really engages with people. Has confidence without taking himself too seriously. Loves life and all its possibilities. Loves learning and has the humility to change and grow. Values family. A very special man in a regular guy kind of way.
The first thing people notice about me
That I have a lot of spark -- articulate, aware, direct and energetic. People can feel that I am genuinely interested. I pay attention and try to know people.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle -- started by a friend reading it allowed to me while we were on the beach in Greece and got sucked in. It's about the human experience and how ego and identity get in the way of real peace, and what's possible if one just accepts what is in the Zen sense. There are parts that ring true and parts that don't, but it is a stimulating read.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My loving family and friends.
- The sensitivities and skills that make my life and relationships what they are.
- Having a career I love that allows me the lifestyle I want.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I sometimes want others to initiate.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Intelligent, Passionate, Perceptive
A little more about me
I'm a lot of different things. Even though I think I sound like a true Californian with all my talk of Zen and connection, I am also a very grounded person, pragmatic and effective in the real world of work and life.
