The one thing I am passionate about...
I am excited and passionate about having a balanced life of family/friends, faith, my career, community service and "me time". Basically, I believe in working hard and playing harder when possible. With that said, simple pleasures are most meaningful to me. I enjoy music - various genres like gospel, contemporary/inspirational, r&b, neo-soul and jazz. I enjoy the arts/entertainment movies or other opportunities to participate or attend shows, live bands.I also enjoy the outdoors, beaches, walking/jogging and running and ethic cuisine. When it comes to community service, I believe in giving back because it is edifying.
I typically spend my leisure time
1. Me Time - one of several of the following: spa, salon time; meditating/devotional time; going to the beach as often as I can especially in the summer, jogging and Zumba!2. Relaxing at home doing of the following: writing - always inspires me; listening to music; watching the HGTV and DIY channels; trying out a recipe or gardening.3. Spending with friends and family - dining, movies, theater, concerts, games, sporting events. Okay, okay - and finding a good sale every now and then! ;-)
The most influential person in my life has been
Simply put -- good well-rounded character, honesty, integrity and good humor are what I am looking for in another person..
The first thing people notice about me
Other than my smile people tend to notice my genuine and confident manner.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Ethical Ambition -- by Derrick Bell,Esq. The author provides insight on his experiences living an ethical life yet facing various conflicts. The Five Love Languages - Gary Chapman - It was a great and insightful book about understanding the ways in which your partner responds to love and they ways that are most meaningful to them. It is also challenges you to step beyond one's personal preferences and consider their mate.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Faith - I recognize it is the Lord who gives me inner strength and help throughout my life.
- Family/ Friends - my roots, culture, values, the encouragement to soar and excel; and laughter!
- Simple Pleasures and some twists along the way~ a balanced life!Great meal, walk & conversation
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My sweetness should not be misconstrued as weakness. I just try to be quick to listen twice as much as I speak (although I enjoy a good conversation).
