What do you love about yourself?
I love a lot about myself which I never thought I did until asked this question. I LOVE MY LIFE. My family says to me all the time that I’m living the “good life” and they’re right. I have an amazing boyfriend of seven years and together we’ve raised Charlie, our seven year old Boxer mix. We go on adventures and kayak on a regular basis. You can definitely say my life is never dull. I love how I was raised and the morals I have, and I love the impact I have on others. Whether you realize it or not, everything you do has an impact and I believe for the most part the impact I have on others is positive.
What Gets You Discouraged?
I get discouraged by many things but a big one lately has been my severe case of eczema. I’ve suffered with this since the age of five so I’m used to it by now and taking care of it has just become part of my daily routine. It is part of me and who I am. Lately it’s been so bad that I can’t just put it on the back burner and the realization that it is never going to go away brings me down.
How do you overcome your Demons?
I overcome my demons with space and time. As bad as it sounds, instead of confronting my problems, I tend to avoid them all together and they just work themselves out. I’ve found out that time heals most things and that what’s meant to be will always find a way.
What is your Greatest Passion?
My greatest passion is caring for people…and not just any person, but those who surround me and whom I love. My friends and family are a big part of me and when they’re happy, I’m happy. I will go out of my way to help them out or buy them a gift that I just know they will love. People tell me all the time that I am too nice to others and that nobody would ever do that for me but it’s because I want to. I am a people pleaser and expect nothing back in return. Oh and I absolutely LOVE hosting holiday parties! Ever since Tom and I bought our house it’s kind of my thing 😉
