|Included on this page is a photo of me, with facets about me that matter or have mattered to me greatly. |
Also, an extended bio, which pretty much sums me up as a person. It's who I am, period.
Please note: Any stray text and/or links added to the bottom of this wiki-page after the [#] was
done so by something or someone other than myself! The same thing is happening in my house.
|My hero is my Mom. I worship God, am a proud mom of a beautiful daughter and person, who is a United States Army Servicewoman, am a romantic at heart, am a passionate person and believe any-|
thing worth doing is worth giving it your best or don't bother at all, and just because something seems unlikely or improbable, it doesn't necessarily mean it is impossible. ...And my weapon of choice is
the “truth”. I will seek it and I will speak it.
I believe: in trust and respect, but these must be earned and then not abused or taken for granted; one's “true” value is not what's in their wallet, but what's in their heart, like the cultivating of values
such as compassion, understanding, forgiveness, good ethics and morals, and not only having principles, but standing by them as well, to name some; “true” success can be and is only achieved when
others haven't been used, walked on, and dumped along the pathway to and including upon its fruition; everyone is a “work in progress” and so, mistakes are eminent, but we learn by them and only
when we are willing to acknowledge them and then are accountable for them; the representing of oneself should not be through one's physical self, but through one's character, integrity, values, heart,
and mind; and in equality for all, rights and freedoms are privileges granted and must be respected, protected, and stood up for, both for ourselves and others. These are the “real” traits about a per-
son that impress me as well, along with intelligence, humility, modesty, common sense, and uniqueness of self.
I loathe jealousy, greed, double standards, brown nosing, butt kissing, “fence sitters” (spineless are those who lack the ability to take a stand and stick to it, but rather are ready and willing to alter
their stance in accordance to and for their own self benefit without regard to whether it's right or wrong, “flip-floppers
will do something, but don't follow through; those who don't “keep their word” period), self gain at the expense of others, the “all about me” attitude, braggarts, non-accountabi
another or others), bullying, lying (particularly for, but not limited to, the purpose of covering up one's own transgressions and lack of integrity, morals, etc.), hypocrisy, stealing from others (including
their work, their “earned” credit and credibility), the expecting of respect, trust, and positive recognition without “earning” such, the infringing on the rights of others, the “crying of foul” against another
when the one crying is the one guilty of the foul, the “silent” who see and know of a wrongdoing against another or others but choose to turn the other cheek and do nothing to defend a victim or vic-
tims, and the using of others for self gain and then dismissing them with malice afterwards especially.
Basically, I am a fair-minded, friendly, outgoing person, easy to communicate and negotiate with, unless: one is trying to pull something over on me, expecting of me what they wouldn't do or tolerate
themselves, and/or infringing upon or violating my rights and freedoms. I try to always better myself rather than try to be someone else whom I am not nor can I even be. I make mistakes and have
made many along my journey of life, learning mostly the hard way from them. I'm sure I have many yet to make and learn from, but I try not to repeat past ones.
My experiences in life are diversified, negative and positive, some traumatic, some ecstatic, but all are blessings, contributing to whom I am today and instilling a desire within me to always try to better
my self worth. I am not a “blind” follower. Instead of simply taking the “easy and most traveled” road, I prefer to forge my own path, even if it is the more difficult one and makes me unpopular, deter-
mined by my own life's experiences, good, bad, or in between, and knowledge gained from them, as well as from others' lessons and experiences whenever possible and I believe in sharing knowledge
gained with others so all may benefit.
I'm not hesitant... to “think outside the box”, to push the limits to the max as long as I do not bring harm to others and I stay within the law, to stand up for what's right, even if or perhaps especially if
I'm viewed unfavourably by doing so. I try to expect the maximum of myself, while the minimum of others, thus inducing less disappointment of/in myself and by/from others. I try not to sweat the small
stuff, but violate me, my core rights, and my integrity I have “earned”, and one will be met with a force to be reckoned with most definitely. It's not about revenge or even close, but about the rightful
defending and protection of oneself, one's self esteem, respect, and “earned” integrity and no one else has the right to strip me or another of any of these. One can also expect the same should they
do likewise against those who are dear to my heart.
I believe there is good and evil in everyone, but the choice of that which we aspire for, lies within ourselves, for we are all also given “free will”, the choice to pursue, be, and exhibit one or the other.
Karma is retaliatory. Good begets good and evil begets evil; love and all it encompasses begets the same and hatred begets hatred. I also believe that anyone can change their course of direction, if
they harbour the will, the desire within themselves to do so, for themselves first and foremost, because one must be able to respect and care about thyself before one can do likewise with/towards
others, and so, I believe that people do deserve second chances to rectify mistakes, bad choices, and decisions made and thus the chance to change their course of life into a more positive and better
Ultimately, we all have pluses and minuses, weaknesses and strengths. If we each concentrate on learning ourselves, so we may recognise and hence know the difference, we can then accept we are
not perfect, but rather, we are each a “work in progress” and learn how to sustain our strengths and minimise our weaknesses.
