I appreciate the little things in life.,. I feel like it's all those little things that simply make me happy. I love the stars and everything about laying under them. I have some really goofy tendencies and habits ;) I hug palm trees, lol yes, seriously.
I'm a work-a-holic & I love my job and what I do, If I could be on the road traveling though (like I used to do atleast once a month) every other week or two I would sign up in a heart beat. I have an uncontrollable need to make people happy and laugh. Motivation is a key element in my life... whether it's from quotes or a book or someone in my life, i've found it's a huge part of what makes me tick daily.
I give a lot and expect little in return. I daydream all the time... I'm always thinking of whats coming next. There are a lot of things daily that inspire my creativity. Reading is one of those quality me time activities I'll never get enough of. I always find myself saying, there isn't the time to do it, but truth is... I'm just making an excuse. I need to spend more time doing that for myself. Reading is knowledge & knowledge is power.
My life has been shaped by so many influences. My parents... They have been separated since I was young. They both have taught me so much. Even though their lessons are so drastically different, I like to think they did a pretty good job.
I've lived in Illinois my entire life however, I don't feel as though I've quite found my place yet. There is still a "wanderlust" urge that I've had my whole life that makes me wish and dare to pick up and move somewhere far away on a whim.
Smiling is my favorite. To me true strength is over coming the smallest obstacles everyday. I love Quotes, they pretty much fill journal page upon journal page of mine. Somehow they provide a backbone when mine has gone missing.
I have been in love twice in my life. I've learned people change, lie and promise you things and when those promises have disappear, you're left alone to think about where things went wrong. Well I've learned that things didn't go "wrong" they just didn't work out at the time the way you wanted them to...
Maybe your first love is the one sticks with you because it’s the only person who will ever receive all of you. After that, you learn better. But, most of all, no matter what, a piece of you forever remains left behind in the heart of the one you loved – a piece no future lover could ever get, no matter what. That piece holds innocence, the belief that love really can last forever. It holds friendship and pain, trial and error, that one kiss you’ll never forget, and that night under the stars you can never get back. It holds youth and everything you thought love would be, everything that was proven wrong.
I'm pretty much random and bubbly but I pride myself on being everything my mom and dad have ever taught me about being down to Earth and keeping my feet on the ground. I have this habit *whether it's good or bad it's how I am* of flying by the "seat of my pants". I don't make plans very often because story of my life something random always happens. I am not saying I don't ever and when I do I definitely keep them... For example on my last Sunday off I went hiking through this beautiful forest preserve with one of my best friends. Hiked 9.5 miles until dark and ended up driving all the way to the city for sushi at 9:30 at night just to make it to this awesome Sushi restaurant called Sushi Para II... :) Oh and btw, if you live in the chicago land area or in the city look it up. I love that place. Things just always happen that way, which is exciting and fun! I'm always up for some sort of adventure or random trip! :)
Movies... I hate scary movies, I refuse to watch them. There are too many weirdos out there these days that things just seem and feel all too real. I get nightmares too if I do :(
Music... well here is the make it or break it category... Country music is my favorite... if you don't like it, we can't be friends ;) Kidding of course. It's just my first go-to if I have the choice of what i'm listening to. I love almost all music though. In my downtime at work i'm listening to country, rock, oldies, house, a little R&B every so often, it all just depends on the mood :)
Food is a fun topic to talk about.. I have always said I would eat everything at least once before I make a judgement on anything specifically as long as it doesn't eat me first we're pretty much okay. Sushi, pizza, pasta, salad... I could go on and on. But i'd have to say Sushi is one of my favorites.
