Think deeply, speak gently, love much,
laugh a lot, work hard, give freely,
and be kind.
Be your own pack leader
--exercise, discipline, affection, rules, boundaries, limitations.
(This is Cesar Millan's expert advice to dog owners. For humans like me, I would add some adventure, sprinkle in some spontaneity, stir in a strong dose of UNlimited thinking, and grill up some great goals to finish this tried and true recipe for the good life.)
Little things: I abhor profanity in public, and prefer 24-hour clocks.
trustworthy, easygoing, curious, reasonable, enthusiastic, intuitive, loyal, ethical, insightful, witty, respect privacy, friendly competitor, good conversationalist, critical (as in analytic, not carping and deprecatory), appreciative, optimistic, fun to be around, hygienic, honest, straightforward, reflective, resourceful, possess common sense, admit when i'm wrong, WYSIWYG, self-improving--actively working to diminish my cons list (see below).
Cons (i didn't lie about being honest):
distracted, telephonophobic--have trouble keeping in regular contact with friends and family, cold hands and feet, live in apartment above parents, recurring depression and anxiety, dislike crowds, need lots of alone time, procrastination.
I am lipstick, dresses, and blue jeans and tees.
