Okay, so here is the revised version of me since I've not updated this in quite sometime. I'm a woman with a good heart and I have a great love for my family. I believe family is the core of my being. I have two children what are 8 and 10. They are the reason I breathe. I truly realize the importance of family and the significance they have on my life. When I was married I was a stay at home mom for 8 years. I am truly blessed that I had that amazing opportunity, and I'm grateful to my ex-husband who was able to provide that for us. I have only worked part time for the past 3 years, until now. I did that so my children would not have to go to after school care. Even though, that was not conducive for me financially...I didn't care. That transition was too hard on them at that time. However, I'm the type that always manages, and I'm very adaptable to change. I didn't always do it gracefully, and at one point or another, I fell flat on my face. However, I ALWAYS find a way to stand up, dust myself off, and start walking again.I just started a career in radio advertising sales. Music is my heart and soul, and I absolutely love my job. I gave my kids enough time to adjust to all the changes they went through, and now I'm off to the races! I work hard, but I play hard too. In my spare time I like to write and paint. I'm in the process of writing a book, but I'll tell you more about that later. I'm loyal and honest, and I care about people and how they feel. Empathy is my greatest strength, and it can be, my greatest weakness. I went on a trip to Florida by myself recently. My dad said to me, "Don't be little miss helpful along the way. Promise me you won't pick up strangers, and that goes for strange animals too". I had to laugh and I said, "I promise". Since my word is my bond, I didn't pick anyone or anything up, but there were several instances where I thought about it. My father and my mother are my heros, and I think I'm the luckiest to be raised by two incredible people. I also treasure my friends, and I consider them my family. I only have a handful that I consider my true friends, but those that are I have known for over 20 years.
Who I'm looking for...someone who strives to be the best they can. I want someone who respects people for who they are, and not who they want them to be. I also am looking for someone who works as hard as I do, and who is very active in life. I cannot tolerate laziness. Family must be at the utmost importance to them, as well. I realize you do not choose family, but you have to love the ones you're with. I understand it's not always easy. I'm looking for a relationship, and I want someone who is looking for the same. I want someone to walk with me, not around me. I'm not looking for a booty call, so if you are, don't even bother. I'm also not looking to get married right out of the gate, or someone to move in with me. I'm perfectly capable on my own, so don't get the wrong idea about my statement on finding a relationship. I will be honest, I'm sick of the uncomfortable first dates. I will warn you, I'm very picky. That is probably why I've been single (off and on) for the past 3 years. If you work hard for a living, love your family, honest, loyal, and try to be the best you can...feel free to contact me. If not, like I said, don't bother. Eleanor Roosevelt said, "Life is what you make it. Always has been, always will be". That is the motto I try to live by. If you feel the same, I hope to hear from you. If it's meant to be...so be it!
