"I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am pretty, but not beautiful. I have friends, but I am not the peacemaker. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love." — Marilyn Monroe
It is said "When you stop chasing the wrong things in life you aIlow the right things to catch up with you." I am about respect.Dignity.Kindness.I want to leave the world better than I found it. Pay it forward. An eternal optimist, I am a happy person. When they say "A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour" they refer to me. Have learned to let go and live the moment. I truly love life and cherish what God has given me. Value kindness.As Catherine the Great said, "The more a man knows the more he forgives." Life is a series of lessons. Until you "get it" you have to repeat the lesson. Einstein declared "The only mistake in life is the lesson not learned." I haven't been that outstanding in getting it right the first time. That's OK. It's called Living. "To live is like to love. All reason is against it and all healthy instinct for it." (Samuel Butler). I have truly learned that our backgrounds and circumstances may have influenced our lives but we are responsible for who we become. I have learned to be my own person and not look for adoration from the crowd.I have my own style from dress to play. Am humble, kind, compassionate, and empathetic. I do have boundaries and will not hang on a lover's cross for you. As Jim Croce sung,"It's what we do that makes us who we are." A great romantic but equally grounded. I would like to be someone's princess, but can go to the ball by myself. I posess a fierce gusto for life and the energy that goes with it.
Who am I looking for?Someone to fall in love with. A man with a big smile, a spirit of adventure,and a great soul. A man of character, conviction, and education. Someone who is not stagnant and likes to get up and go. Especially likes to travel. Embraces change.Young at heart regardless of age. Is about respect,trust,and fidelity. A ONE woman man. As for distance, if you are not willing to meet me halfway, pass on my profile. If you are too busy to make time for getting to know me then I'm not the girl for you. If you want to spend weeks being a pen pal, I am not she. I want to live, and live it up. I seek a real man who wants to meet and get to know a real lady albeit an old-fashioned girl. I am no Mata Hari, however Mary Poppins never appealed to me either. Adventures you will have with me.
There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh.So, love the people who treat you right. Forgive the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of LIFE...Getting back up is LIVING. "Everybody deserves somebody who makes them look forward to tomorrow."
