I am somewhat reserved around people I am unacquainted with. However, when I feel comfortable, my quirky sense of humor seems to prevail. …laughter makes for such great times.
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We all have our own personal taste when it comes to physical traits. What I can tell you is when I walk into a crowded room I can feel the stares. I’ve always thought it was because of my height (5’11”). Whatever the reason for the stares, I’ll always take it as a compliment.
I am an inner city school teacher. Ahhhhh the stories I could share….unbelievable stories. It’s such a different experience from suburbia schools. I’ve been asked, several times, why I have not transferred to the suburbs to teach. My response is always the same…the students that I educate have stolen my heart…I feel like I truly have an impact and make a difference in their lives…and as long as I feel that way, I will continue to teach there.
Although I love my job and its challenges, my main focus is my children. They are the pride and joy of my life. They are great kids, and I’m not just saying that because they are mine. My profession has exposed me to so many personalities of children. I know I’ve been blessed. As their mother I take seriously the responsibility of guiding them to what is right. I am their advocate…their support…their security…their friend…their role model. They will always be my priority.
For years I have put everybody’s needs well before my own, and since my divorce I have been given an opportunity to do some things for myself. A friend of mine had suggested trying Crossfit. It’s been a year and I cannot express the difference and impact Crossfit has made on my life. (so much so, that my kids Crossfit too…so good for all of us) Since I began Crossfit, I have accomplished feats that I never thought possible of myself, mentally and physically. Just a few months ago I participated in the Warrior Dash. It was such an experience. I scaled a 12 foot wall and jumped over the other side, for crying out loud…not too bad for a girl who is petrified of heights. I am in the best shape of my life…I hate the WOD’s as I am doing them, but I feel such an accomplishment when I complete them. It keeps me coming back for more…4-5 times a week.
What am I looking for? Well, honestly I don’t think I am ready for a serious relationship. I’m just looking for someone who wants to participate in activities that interest us both…someone to have conversations with…someone to spend some time with….but if a relationship shall evolve, I’m in!
