I found these questions so I thought I'd put them up here with my answers. I really liked answering them:
1. What moves, inspires, drives you. What are you goals, mistakes and fears?
Goals: To backpack all over this continent and if that goes well the planet, if not, decide on another way to travel and explore all over; to learn to speak spanish, french, german, latin, italian; to design and build a plant nursery; to design and build and run a spa/retreat center; to build a home and garden; to swim at the south fork of the Trinity River as much as I wish; to help my mother sister and father in some way; to experience deep intamacy, love, acceptance, and gratitude with myself and then with my mate; to continue to learn about all kinds of things; to write books; to create a web page. I have very specific ideas about the wellness center, the nursery, the books, and the web page.
Mistakes: I would no longer call these "mistakes" but decisions that were not life serving but necessary to help me find out who I am and who I am not: smoked when I was younger; married a man who later abused me, but who helped me bring two beautiful children to this planet; allowed myself to become an emotional eater; was not always loving to and appreciative of my children. I suppose there are more but those are some of the biggies.
Fears: pain coming to my children or my sister; new adventures(afraid but excited, compelled, and determined); meeting new people. After writing this it doesn't feel true to me. I have been getting better at appreciating the moment, being grateful and being loving. When I am in this frame of mind I have no fears.
2. How can I help you become the-best-version-of-yourself?
Love me unconditionally.
3. How can I love you completely and selflessly?
By loving yourself completely and selflessly.
4. How can I help you know and fulfill your dreams?
To support me by listening to me and taking my ideas, interests,and plans seriously. And beleiving that I can do anything I dream about doing. ("Never give up your dreams. They're your instructions from God.")
5. How can I help you use your talents?
By supporting me - see above
6. What are your needs and how can I help you fulfill them?
Water, shelter, nourishment, sunshine, love, learning, growing and giving. If I am lacking the first four help me to seek them out; love- well lets explore that together; learning, growing and giving - I hope we have some of the same needs on this one, if not being supportive. (see above)
These would only be wished for if you allow me to be there for you in the same way.
That was fun, now here more things that are interesting to me:
I love being in nature. Different cultures and geographic regions fascinate me. I intend to build a sustainable alternative house. I have a piece of property in Trinity County. After spending much time there, I'm no longer sure that is the place I will build. I'm very spiritual but not religious. I'm interested in learning to live a more healthy life, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Good conversations. I love people, although I'm more inclined to low key social situations. It is important to me to develop a friendship before any romance. I believe relationships started in this way is what makes them last.
I love to eat veggies that I've grown myself. I read a lot; I like going for walks; listening to music (smooth jazz, classical, classic rock, swing, reggie, standards, folk, and celtic;) having dinner with friends. I love swimming at a quiet spot on the south fork of the Trinity River. Camping; travelling and exploring; and drawing plans for an alternative and sustainable house and permaculture landscaping. I'm interested in preventative health, such as healthy eating, positive attitude, gratitude, those types of things. I would love to get more involved in projects that improve the quality of life for all.
"What Would Love Do Now?"
Hoping to meet someone who thinks similar to me in the areas of food and sprirituality. Integrity and compassion are important to me too.
