"Character is not only doing the right thing when no one is looking, it’s doing the right thing when everyone is looking. It’s being willing to do the right thing even when it costs more than you want to pay." - Michael Josephson
I believe the way we live our lives and the way we treat other people matter considerably. The virtues I admire, I try to put into personal practice. I value peace, relaxation, love, beauty, nature - but because there is always something valuable that needs doing, I do not engage those as often as I should.
I am attracted most to people I have positive emotions about. Consideration towards others, an attitude of respect, and a smile: these go a long way with me.
I was raised in a time where sex belonged only as part of marriage or at least a serious relationship. Overcoming that is not easy for me, but at times I wish I could break out of that shell.
I am not nearly as low on optimism as this system rates me ;-)
I am currently more exploring what is possible than I am ready to get serious.
