I love getting to know new people and seeing the world from different perspectives. To me it's important to open up your mind to others in order to connect with them. For me, this connection begins to happen most frequently through music or dance, philosophy, telling stories, and comparing interests. After you find what brings you to a similar place, it builds into wondering, "what brought you here, and where are you going?".
I consider myself a bit of an intellectual but definitely don't take it to the extreme. Taking good care of ones self on all levels- mentally, emotionally, physically, and (to a lesser extent) spiritually is a huge priority for me. I've found that happiness comes from the choices we make and being willing to take a leap of faith into the unknown.
