One of my strengths is optimism and I am proud of that. I want to see the good in situations and in people (yes that can come to bite you in the butt but for the most part, it's helpful). When life sucks, I try to focus on what is good. I don't think I can tell you a day that was just an all around crappy day. Been dumped? Yes I have. Been laid off a week before my wedding? Yup. But those hard times didn't keep me down. There are even days where I am feeling off yet a song, conversation, picture, etc can change my mood. Life is to short to be a pessimist. So my first word would be optimistic.
Okay now that I am writing it, I can think of another. I am 100% outgoing. I can easily make friends with a tree. I thrive on getting to know someone and connecting via conversation, jokes, and interaction. It's fun at work because my office is made up of mostly introverted, quiet, software developers but that doesn't stop me. I'm not nervous to strike up a conversation with anyone...heck I even walked right up to President George Bush Senior while he was working at out the student rec center at Texas A&M (his library is there). Other people were scared but I saw it as an opportunity (cool story, I ended up meeting him again on campus and he said he remembered me and my dimples).
Third= creative. I love to craft, I love to decorate, and I love trying new things in the kitchen. I get so much joy out of making and creating, it gives me a sense of identity and accomplishment. This isn't a recent thing for me either. A few examples from growing up:
- Cutting up old Christmas cards to re purpose into ornaments, gift tags, etc
- Gluing together popsicle sticks to make just about anything (jewelry boxes for mom, mail holders for dad). I've probably been using a glue gun since 1995!
- Using last year's handwriting and math work books to play school with my little sister and her friends
