Complex, but not complicated. Independently Happy… I wake every day and decide to smile and make the best of it. Happiness is a way of traveling as they say. I do my best to exude grace living ALL of it; the good, the bad, and everything in between. I have many interests, change my mind a lot, and reserve the right to continue to do so as long as I see fit. What I find interesting today will more than likely lead to another interest tomorrow. I try to not have many expectations, accepting people and situations for what they are. Although I once thought I would conquer the world, I am now finding a bigger interest in conquering myself. Please do not confuse that with lack of ambition, as I have plenty of that.
In my opinion life is meant to be enjoyed rather than endured. I am grateful that life has given me the experiences I have so far, and I look forward to many more. I crave new adventures, sights, and smells. Given a choice, I would much rather collect experiences than money in a bank account. Although having both wouldn’t be so bad! I do my best to look people in the eye and actually see them.
Sonder-n. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
My television was transformed into a fishtank years ago… I prefer reading the book over watching the movie. I usually have several books going at once, sometimes taking a day or two to finish one, sometimes taking a year… i am terrible with names of authors, sometimes even book titles. I tend to take what i need from the perspective at the time. What was said being more important than who said it. My friends are extremely important to me, and I would do most anything for anyone in a time of need. . I enjoy hiking in the woods for days, lounging on a boat, sitting by a fire, meeting new people, watching some waves, the snow, gardening, golfing, running, yoga, getting lost, paying it forward, cooking, making people feel noticed, trying something new... I am the one that actually does things, not just sitting around and talking about it, constantly learning and finding ways to grow.
I definitely do not enjoy dealing with drama... or laundry... I despise doing laundry....
I am mostly interested in being interested. I would like to meet someone who shares my lust for life! Someone intelligent, friendly, funny, optimistic, kind, attentive, and adventurous. A man that is comfortable enough with himself to treat others with respect and kindness. The thought of being cared for is much more appealing than being taken care of. If you prefer high maintenance and enjoy the drama, please look elsewhere. I am not a needy person, and prefer the idea of having our own lives that mutually benefit one another. I do not understand the need to be constantly attached at the hip, but maybe I have yet to find that person that makes me feel that way. I believe in appreciating people as they are, never judging or trying to change you. I do my best to Live Love, it is kind of who I am… Let’s have an adventure, share a laugh, maybe a glass of wine or an IPA, and at the very least probably learn something about ourselves from each other.
