Some info about me
For whatever it is worth, I wanted to let you know a little about me.
I have always preferred a natural remedy over taking man-made medicine for whatever and I recently have developed an interest in aromatherapy and have started doing my own research. Hey, I figure even if it doesn't prove to stand up to the claims, it at least smells divine and I lose nothing. I have a link to a couple aromatherapy places on my links page.
I am and have always been from the earliest age, an avid reader. I enjoy most type of books with the exception of those extremely off the wall sci-fi novels (although I dearly love Star Trek) or those slow paced murder mysteries. Usually what is found on the top 20 lists is something I will read.
A good book takes you on a journey and makes you care about the characters, just like a good movie will do.
Let me tell you, movies were my life savers over in Korea while I was stationed there. Although I liked the people and I had a good duty assignment, I truly hated every moment while I was there. A good movie put me out of my misery for a little while. Believe me, I saw several while there and I went on long long walks too to help. Also almost every Saturday there in Korea I would walk all day long, all around Seoul, Korea, There were days I walked ten miles. I know, I wore a pedometer during those long walks.
To be fair to the country of Korea, the reason I hated it so much was because I was in love and separated from the man I loved, he was stateside and I was in Korea for one long year.
True love, I hope to find it again. A little poem I have written, perhaps one day I will expand on it:
Animals, I love both cats and dogs but I find cats to be special. I dearly missed having cats while I was assigned to places in the military where I had to live in the barracks and wasn't allowed to have pets. I have two cats. You can meet them on their own pages here on this site.
Life~~ This world has alot of beauty to it right in the middle of so much of the meaness and injustices that co-exist with it. The meaness and injustices I ask myself what I can do to change that and I work on doing just that. So many wrongs and terrible things happen and its easy to feel rather overwhelmed by it all. Since I can't change the world, I change what I have control over, myself. If someone is broken-down and down-trodden and asks me for change on the street, I give it to them because, but for the grace of God, there I could be.
I truly believe that everyone has some redeeming quality to them, even if it is not readily apparent to me and I try to remember that. Plus, I try to treat people the way I would like to be treated and I would like to think if I was in need and only at the mercy of strangers, that someone would give me a hand. Maybe I am naive. If I am, I think it is amazing that I managed to hold on to some innocence in spite of everything and I am okay with that.
Simple Pleasures~~There is so much beauty in this world and I try very hard to appreciate all that I see and hear.
I learned after a very long time that anger, blame, bitterness and resentment dwelling within me, accomplish nothing but hurting me further, so I learned and continue to learn how to let it all go. It's an ongoing process within myself, but my proof that I am more at peace now, tells me that letting the past wrongs that happened go instead of harboring the anger and hurt within is the right thing to do.
