I consider myself a bit of a unique individual...I definitely dance to the beat of my own drummer (or on some occasions to no music at all). I do my best to enjoy life and stay positive so if you are in a state of constant self-loathing or hating life, it will not work for me! I may be opinionated on some things but I will always respect another's right to have their own opinion, even if I do not agree. Diversity makes the world interesting and respect makes it work. Although it states my beliefs/religion is "new age", that isn't entirely accurate...although I love nature and have hugged my share of trees, I embrace chivalry (with some exceptions), the "dark side" within us all, and modern technology! To me, "new age" makes me think of flighty, hippie-ish people...and I am a far cry from that! But out of my choices, "new age" seemed to be a term many might understand for what I believe (pagan!). You don't have to believe what I do, but you must have an open mind and allow me to be who I am. I believe that every day is a gift and we should make the most of it. I believe that no one should be forced to change who they are...self-improvement is always good, but changing for someone else is not. To be perfectly clear, I am not model thin but don't consider myself a large woman, but I have a few extra pounds on me and am currently working on making myself healthier...I believe I am sexy with curves and will continue to have them even as I become healthier! So if you are looking for a woman who flies away in a strong wind....that's not me! :)
I am quite an independant individual and need my "me" time as much as I need time with others. My time is precious to me and I spend most of it working with my own business, reading (fiction and non), my friends, working with the alternative belief/counterculture communities, or at a hockey game with my folks (we've had Wranglers season tickets for years--yes, NHL fan, too). I do not live in a 9-5 world and my schedule, although somewhat regular, can be somewhat unpredictable. I'm quite an eclectic individual and continue the search for an individual who can keep up with (or at least tolerate) my busy schedule, my unique personality and life outlook, can handle the fact I consider my three cats my "kids", can handle my sometimes dominant personality (I'm a Leo after all!), appreciates my hockey addiction, can be silly and serious, and has an open mind to non-mainstream ideas (such as alternative beliefs, tattoos, piercings, etc.).
