I'm a very positive person, I believe that we are responsible for our own happiness, and while sad and frustrating things can and do happen in life, the good far outweighs the bad. Most of life's problems can be logically handled positively and with low levels of drama as long as you have a good attitude. Speaking of drama, I like to avoid it! I have realized that there are certain unavoidable elements of drama in the human experience though, and that once again, it's really all in how you deal with it. In general though if I can avoid unnecessary drama I do! With that being said I am told that I am dramatic... like in the way that I like to tell entertaining stories, I am very expressive, and sometimes maybe a little too loud.
I love to have fun, I am extremely outgoing! I like to go places and do fun things, I do like to go out and party like a rock star from time to time, but I also like entertaining at home, cooking delicious foods, and making yummy drinks for my friends. I enjoy the outdoors and love the water, I grew up on a sailboat so to say I like the sea is an understatement! I love the river, and local lakes, any water will do, and I enjoy being in natural settings! Hiking, picnics, and theoretically camping though I really haven't camped that much, we lived on a boat, we didn't need to camp. lol. Love, love, love travel! There are so many places I need to see!
I have two sons, they are awesome, and keep me very busy. I love spending time with my boys, but I also like to get away, and step out of the Mom role. I volunteer for an international breastfeeding organization, being able to help mothers feed their babies in the most nutritious and healthy way is very rewarding to me. You may be surprised but there is a lot more to it than you might think! I am also a Cancer survivor, and I am currently looking for volunteer opportunities along that vein as well. I find it very fulfilling to help people, and tend to be a nurturing person.
I think I am incredibly low maintenance, I don't really like to make a big fuss about stuff, but I am known to get up on my soapbox about a few things I find important. I'm told I have a big personality though so it's not like I'm a wall flower, I just don't like getting too worked up about stuff... Mellow!
I've been single for several years, and I do like my independence, I am in no hurry to rush into anything serious, like everything else with me, I just like to be laid back and let things run their course. I am not opposed to a relationship by any means, but I am not actively seeking or pining away for love. I am a very loving person though and have deep affections for the people in my life. My eyes and heart are open, but like I said, no rush!
