Bob Goff, an inspirational man and author wrote in his book Love Does, “Most people need love and acceptance more than they need advice.” This is one of my favorite quotes. I strive to live my life in a way that reflects this; to acknowledge people, to see them and hear them, and then accept them. However, the advocate in me often struggles to remember that love and acceptance should also be extended to the hateful and to those who impose on other’s rights, but I’m a work in progress.
I’m an EFNP, which means I’m an extrovert with introverted tendencies… so I really love being around people, exploring, hosting people in my home, being loud for no reason, but I also really love my alone time, reading books, writing essays or poems, and listening to folky tunes with meaningful lyrics. And I’m not even sure what it all means to believe in zodiac signs but I’m an Aries to a T.
I’m very passionate and also witty which often reveals itself with a bad case of “sass mouth.”
I am equal parts fashionable and outdoorsy. I’ve observed that most often people really try to find their identity in being just one thing, like if you’re gonna be outdoorsy you can’t wear makeup and you have to wear sandals even if it’s winter and even though they almost never go with your outfit- or if you’re really into fashion, you’re too fragile to go camping or hiking. Well, I really enjoy playing with makeup and hair, and I equally enjoy hiking, biking, camping, and most of all kayaking.
I grew up very southern and the older I get the prouder I am of it. Everyone in my family is such a hard worker, and its definitely one of my highest values.
Speaking of the South, I’ve been back here for about 2 years now. I currently reside in Atlanta, Ga and I love it. You’re likely to see me around the city at a music venue, walking my dog Hank, natural foods store, the beltline, any of the many places serving amazing brunch and coffee, and SoBa-the vietnamese restaurant in EAV.
I’m really into natural health. All that mind, body, spirit stuff, and healing your body with things from the earth.
