The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about living life to the fullest, living joyfully, creatively, happily, abundantly; learning and experiencing new things, places, people, cultures; contributing to someone else's learning and joyful experience; making a difference in my corner of the world.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love the ocean and the mountains - hiking is one of my favorite pasttimes, and I can never get enough of the beach. I love to dance, like cooking, entertaining, reading, and music. I walk for exercise (among other things), but it's also one of my favorite things to do.
The most influential person in my life has been
I want a deep, soulful connection at all levels: spiritually, physically, emotionally, mentally - oh, and don't forget romantically! It's also important that my partner is emotionally healthy and growing and confident and comfortable with himself.
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm confident, strong and decisive - I tend to be pretty clear about what I'm thinking!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read all kinds of things; much of my reading is of a spiritual growth nature, such as Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and Abraham-Hicks. In my bookclub, we tend to read fiction; I loved "Atonement" and "The Kite Runner." And I think Bill Bryson's "A Short History of Nearly Everything" is fascinating - it explains a lot of science in a way I can understand it!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my wonderful daughter and our (mostly!) positive relationship
- my amazing network of supportive, like-minded friends
- the fun, creative, adventurous, educational opportunities I get to participate in through my work, my network and my travels
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'd like to think that I'm not concerned about what other people are thinking or noticing...
