I recently experienced what I would like to call the most challenging situation I have had to navigate in life so far. With that challenge also came a significant learning and understanding of my Self, and the journey continues :-)
I feel very grateful to have a position that affords me an incredible amount of time, space, and energy to focus on other activities outside of work. I have been actively working on determining and solidifying what else motivates me in my life, and I can share that I have several passions and interests:
Travel / Adventure. I have taken a few solo trips now and the experiences I have had have been immeasurable. I spent three weeks in Portland back in April of this year (without knowing a soul), and it was by far one of the most memorable experiences I have had. The idea of living in various cities across the United States has now manifested into a reality and will be an adventure I am pursuing frequently come September of this year :-)
Healthy living. I am passionate about staying fit, consistently working out, and eating well (whole foods, plant based diet). I have my vices and I endearingly refer to myself as a fat kid at heart, but I am dedicated to taking care of my Self, including my body.
Growth. I continuously pursue personal growth and I am dedicated to loving myself and others each and everyday.
Connections. In the past, I have lived a life that did not always feel connected to others. I am actively working to change this, and in my attempts have revealed my inner people lover. I am working towards loving all humans unconditionally and understanding the unique and various ways in which humans connect. That being said, I am a total introvert, and need my me time to recharge and re-energize for more connections :-)
Living with Integrity. I strive to navigate life with integrity by engaging in open and honest communication, authenticity, loving actions, and viewing others with compassion.
Self-expression. This was a foreign concept to me my entire life, let's just say it was not well-developed or shaped in my formative years. I am actively working to find my own inner voice, she has been repressed for 28 years and she is dying to get out ;-)
I also have a small talent involving facial recognition. I am skilled at recognizing faces easily :-)

*How I can be a better human
*How to continue my own journey of growth into a strong sense of Self
*Where I should travel next
*How I can manifest more funds to travel
*How I can continue to push myself outside of my comfort zone
Seriously, my preference is to be honest, open, and authentic with others. I am an open book.
If something (or some things) about my profile struck a chord or connected with you, I would love to know ☺️
