Who are YOU? What do YOU want? - My Answers

My parallel life traveler and blog sister Lovebabz recently posted these questions and it really got me to thinking. On the surface these questions seemed so simple, but in essence are so complicated that they seemed to have stumped quite a few bloggers.

Who are YOU?

I am a person who feels deeply, although my face may show ice or my actions show a means to get it done. If you learn how to decode my facial expressions you will have instant access into my soul. Because of this I have been told to go into acting, yes I love performing but have no desire to delve into that field at my age and be a starving artist again.

I am a person who believes in love. After years of nursing myself back to a healthy relationship with love, I truly believe in love. Love does not keep score, it allows you to be who you are with no repercussions or fall out. Hurt feelings are human nature, hurting someone's feelings repeatedly is a different story. Love will find me and I will be able to give and receive love and enjoy it. Everything happens for a reason, sometimes we just don't understand that we are holding onto the things that God is trying to take away. Yes Lord, I surrender. I no longer fight to keep things, people or feelings that I should have let go long ago. I now know that God doesn't do coincidences. When people fall out of my life, I should leave them there.

I am a nurturer and a giver. My friends call me loyal...sometimes to a fault. I can be brutally honest at times. I believe if your friends can not tell you the truth, no one can. My family is important to me, they include people related by blood and those I have added to my family over the years.

Titles do not matter to me. Who cares if you are a Regional President when you have no time to spend with me? I enjoy cuddling while watching a movie or engaging in a good conversation. I could care less if you wear a suit to work or a uniform. It is all a means to make money to pay bills. What I do care about is your spirit, your being and how responsible you are.

What do YOU want?

I want to know happiness. Every day is not filled with kisses, roses and romance but I want to enjoy as many days as possible for as long as possible.

I want someone in my life who appreciates all that I give and reciprocates that to the best of their ability. We will NOT try to out due each other, but realize that being together makes life better, easier and more enjoyable.

I want my own family no matter what the makeup of that is. In this day and age bonus children are almost a guarantee and that doesn't bother me since I recently found out I may not be able to have children of my own. I am in my 30s and have three other siblings from two other mothers. I am well-equipped and pre-disposed to have a productive relationship with a man with children. As long as he loves furry children as well :)

I want to travel the world and experience different cultures. I want to get married on the beach at sunset and dance the night away with good friends, family and relatives until my feet beg for mercy. I want to know that my life here on this earth made a difference to someone...

In a nutshell...

That is who I AM and that is what I WANT.
