:-My Favorite Quotes-:

I have never found more truth in anything than in this quote here. It perfectly describes what’s in my mind most of the time, my struggles too and clears the misconceptions about my personality. It’s like someone reached into my life and derived these words. Because I can be quite charming and outgoing when I have had time to study people and think about things, and then again I can sometimes be the most awkward person in the room {or at least it seems that way}.

Never found anything with more truth than this right here

Liz Taylor, a fellow Pisces with so much wisdom. This quote alone is enough to make me feel better after a long day but her instructions are just so spot on. Sometimes they are exactly what I need to figure things out.

This quote has stuck with me since my high school english paper on Hans Christian Anderson, a wonderfully inventive man. These words say to me that we must seek out happiness no matter where we are and never be afraid to let it radiate on to others. Plus I love flowers, without them life would truly be sad.

This is one of my favorite Hans Christian Andersen quotes.

A brilliant quote for the disheartened. Mind over matter. I have a hard time believing in myself and when I see this I know it is all in my head and up to me to turn it around.

Finally, a quote that has followed me for a lifetime. From the book of John this verse speaks to my soul. I wont say anymore because the words say it all.

Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death. 1 John 3:13-14

:-My Strengths-:

It is the dreaded question asked in interviews right after they ask to know a little about you… “Very well then, can you tell us about your strengths?” No I cannot  *flips table and walks out*. Honestly though, it is so difficult for me to ramble off my own talents. But in an effort to complete the list I must dig deep and gloat a bit. I took a class last year, Recreation Leadership…I cannot tell you why except that it was required, my personality isn’t suited for leading people. Anyway, our teacher made take this test that would tell us our strengths and I was pretty excited to see the results so I could know for once what I was good at. According to Strengthsquest.com my strengths are as follows:

Empathy- can sense the feelings of other people by imagining themselves in others’ lives or others’ situations.

Individualization- are intrigued with the unique qualities of each person. They have a gift for figuring out how people who are different can work
together productively.

Developer- recognize and cultivate the potential in others. They spot the signs of each small improvement and derive satisfaction from these
improvements.

Input- have a craving to know more. Often they like to collect and archive all kinds of information.

Strategic- create alternative ways to proceed. Faced with any given scenario, they can quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.

There I am. Perfectly sliced in 5 brilliant categories. I sound pretty good huh? Nah, just be glad I’m doing weaknesses {yet!}. To be honest I really think they pegged me good. All of these play into my life in very different, very strong ways. After learning these and realizing the qualities I have, my viewpoint changed drastically. Not only did I see my potential but I learned a better way to use them with other people to build relationships. Strengthsquest.com is a very accurate, helpful sight. Sorry, it isn’t free but I think everyone should take some kind of strength finder test. I would love to hear some of yours!

:-To Win My Heart-:

If I could go back and give myself a word of advice it would include something like this. I would stress the importance of knowing what you want in a guy. It gives you the ability to hold yourself accountable. Plus finding someone with the qualities you are looking for is such a satisfying feeling! Have fun with this one and be true to your heart.
