Hello and here goes. I am not everyone's cup of tea, yet I am willing to wait for the one who thinks my flavor of tea is delicious. I am driven, yet I don't buy into the idea of your career being your life. Just the opposite quite frankly, your life should have passion and it should drive you toward a purpose that becomes at least a large part of what you spend your time on.
I am a Director of a non-profit that works on social/food justice issues throughout the state of CT. I do it from a place of passion and compassion. I consider it an honor when people share from the deepest places within themselves, this helps us all realize how connected we truly are.
I have learned, at least for myself that true beauty eminates from the condition our soul is in, how we meet each challenge presented to us, our attitude and not physical features.
I should write that everyday I: workout, eat clean, meditate, do yoga, have no gray hair, wrinkles, cellulite or saggy anything. Well I am here to say that I have earned every gray hair, wrinkle, cellutlie and the saggy thing/s. Although I do workout, eat quite healthy, do yoga and meditate it is simply only a part of who I am and these things don't drive me. I am pretty balanced and choose to live my life in the way that is not driven by what others think I should be. This in and of itself has taken a lifetime to embrace.
I actually know music like: Rihanna, Jason Derulo, Kanya West, yes sorry, to; Queen (ive seen them, hell ya) Megadeth, Van Halen, and Poison (seen them), also, Fleetwood Mac (seen them), James Taylor(yup him too), Indigo Girls(yup). So this is weird but grew up listening to; Charlie Pride, Glen Campbell, Loretta Lynn, Hank Williams etc. I don't like it all but I have to say I appreciate a lot of artists even when I don't like their music.
Traveling to Belize was one of my most enjoyable experiences; visiting a Mayan ruin, snorkeling and experiencing a rainforest was amazing. I want more of those experiences in my life as well as a companion who would like to join me.
In my spare time I love to garden, camp, read books for pleasure,play tennis, canoe, make up new recipes hike and spend time with family and friends.
I am pretty low maintenance, very independent, well balanced emotionally and very self aware which means i am still screwed up i just know i am and I spend time on what I become aware of. I don't believe there is a time limit on self growth.
I don't know what the next chapter of my life will bring but I am certainly open to the possibility of love and happiness and I do know that I want companionship with someone who can't wait to see me, someone who has the ability to see 52 years of beauty and challenges and accept it for what it is.
