Communication...It’s the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking, the harder it becomes to know what to say, or how to ask for what we really need. Here goes my attempt to communicate who I am and what I'm looking for in someone to share in this journey.
I'm a friendly, happy person who enjoys going out for dinner, brew pubs, long hikes, laying on a blanket looking at the stars, dancing, loading up the car and just driving to somewhere new, live music, relaxing while watching TV and having a glass of wine by the fire or out on the deck. I'm pretty laid back. I believe it is important to laugh each day and try not to get caught up in the small things. You will see my smile far more often than my frown! I am the person who enjoys seeing and hearing someone laugh out loud, nothing will warm your soul more than someone who is truly enjoying the moment, its about special moments that are shared and treasured. I am a woman that appreciates doors being opened and thoughtful kind gestures and words. I am very welcoming and loyal as well as a little sassy and playful. I work hard and enjoy the satisfaction that my job brings to me. My children inspire and humble me daily, they remind me everyday what life is really all about. I surround myself with good friends and value those friendships. I love to travel and drive and explore this beautiful place I am blessed to call home. I’m at ease going to a formal event all dressed up, or going to a game in a sweatshirt and ball cap. I don't like to take myself too seriously, I can be a little goofy, because life is too short. I cherish moments and not material things. I am looking for someone not afraid to be a little goofy and random, someone that enjoys the life they have. I'm looking for someone to share those good and bad times with and explore this crazy life together! A man who can make me laugh, has a great smile, is a good communicator, that is adaptable, adventurous yet dependable, loving, kind and is honest are important qualities to me. I think it's okay if we don't have all the same interests, I just see it as an opportunity to possibly experience something new.
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that’s holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.” ~Eat, Pray, Love (Elizabeth Gilbert). This statement changed my perception of a soul mate.
