I work out three times a week, smile at everything, and always see the upside and other side to everything.
Routine? Yes and no; I like to plan things out, but when I don't have longer-term plans I will make last minute decisions and stand by them! No regrets here!
I am empathetic to a fault, and always construct working stories of people's best intentions. I fervently believe in the inherent good in people and while some may fault me for my rose colored glasses I'd like to keep them as long as I can. Naïve? Perhaps. But I'd like to think that I always give everyone the opportunity to make me proud.
Life will always work out.
Note: I don't live in Oakland yet, but I'm in the process of buying a condo there. Exciting!
