I am tempted to tell you how awesome I am but that's for you to find out if after reading everything below you don't make a beeline for the hills :)
My status gives a glimpse into my 'baggage'. the story behind which you might not expect. I've been single for more than a year now, working on being completely free and I have an easy annulment in my future. I own my baggage, come to terms with my life is, become a better person from past experiences and since I've the power to decide what my life will be like, I choose to be a positive and happy person. All of us, by virtue of being alive and born into some form of family unit, have some form of baggage. It may be how we behave, our background or choices we've made in the past. We demand soul baring honesty from others we don't even know. My question to you is CAN YOU HANDLE THE TRUTH when you're told it???... Can you show the same courage to be THAT VULNERABLE with someone??
I love hard work ( very gratifying), family and friends ( they are very important to me no matter what especially the kids). I believe in being kind,considerate, respectfully blunt/honest, logical and practical about things. This approach has served me well for years. I was taught to be a lady( non-attention seeking and self confident). I come from humble beginnings where my siblings (scattered around the world) and I were encouraged to reach for the sky as well as to never forget our roots no matter how 'high' we got in life. I tend to avoid conflict or drama. A peaceful life is just better in my opinion. I'm a glass half-full kind of girl. I like to see the positive in people and situations. This has really helped me to stay emotionally healthy. I believe that every experience, good or bad, is an opportunity to learn. I view them as concrete evidence of things/situations/different people/ perspectives that in my experience were nothing but ideas before.
The pursuit of my dreams has led to moving to a whole different continent as well as one of the Caribbean islands all by my lone self :). I'm a resiliently reserved person who rolls with the punches and believes in quality interactions. Friends ARE family to me. I love to read, listen to music, touch base with all my family at least once a week, chatting with the kids in the family, even if all they're able to do at this point in their speech development is babble, hanging out with family and friends, site seeing in DC/MD, dancing, singing, cooking, joking around, shopping ( responsibly within my means),having a good laugh ( food for my soul), personal self improvement and I exercise to get the blood flowing. I've never felt the need to follow the crowd or trends. I'm not one to settle for just anything.There's so much more to this smiling face. Come find out :)
"Glass" by Thompson Square is my new favorite song. Listen to it :).... homework? added to this mini novel of a profile!!!.... heelp :)
