Here it is: There are two kinds of people in this world; people who live to *have* and people who live to *be*. I'm in the second group.
I strive to discover the limits of my potential and grow into the person I'm meant to become. I want to look back someday on a life well lived where I made hard choices, pushed myself, and gave more to the world than I took. How wise can a person become? How virtuous? How learned? How great a source of strength, serenity, and empathy to one's friends and family? I see life as a journey to answer these questions.
Sayings to live by:
- "If you want to be more loved, be more lovable."
- "If you’re bored, you’re boring."
- "In a world run by sociopaths, empathy is the most powerful form of rebellion."
I'm kind of surprised this site doesn't have a section on your profile specifically for hobbies. Because I have a passion for growth and personal betterment, many of my hobbies have something to do with exercise, learning, and connecting with other positive, goal-oriented people (and it's not the size of the goal that matters: just the desire to better yourself in SOME way and never stagnate).
Suffice to say that I have many hobbies and that I hope you have at least a couple. If they're hobbies I've never tried, then all the better, because one of the best things about a healthy relationship is sharing each others' worlds and expanding each others' horizons!
If I wrote to you first, you can be sure that I read your profile and questions very closely! This is because I respect myself, you, my time, and your time.
While we're talking about matching questions: my own answers and "acceptable answers" are actually pretty awesome "drama-queen repellant." So, if our "match" scores are very low or our "enemy" scores are very high, then it's good odds you're about two dozen different flavors of crazy! Sorry if the truth hurts, crazy lady!
