Who Am I, Besides A Life Coach?
I once wrote an 80-page paper on my life, and that was ten years ago. I’ll spare you that novel! It seems me interviewing myself might be one way to tackle summarizing who I am as a person—even though anyone can’t really be summarized.
What is most important to you in life?
I value freedom and integrity/the truth. I’m very close with my parents and family; they are a big part of my life and have taught me so much! As I’ve gotten older, I’m starting to realize the value of being healthy. I rescued a kitten about a year ago, without the intention of keeping her, but ended up keeping her; she is my little love! She acts more like a dog sometimes: always greeting me when I come home, cuddling with me, engaging me in play, etc. She has quite the personality. I take her out places occasionally, and people are always surprised to see in a cat in a bag. (No one has ever described me as conventional.) I am lucky to have a handful of amazing friends who completely get me, are there for me, are great for being my own resource with perspective-taking, and are lots of fun! It’s important to me to give back and help make the world a better place. If everyone had that goal and followed through with it, I think the world would be very different. I think making choices that value the environment and other species are also important.
What do you enjoy?
Enjoyment! Yes! I love to enjoy things! This is a fun topic. Of course, I love laughing and good food. I like things that are new experiences and having adventures. I love travelling, even though I don’t have the opportunity to do it frequently. I like learning new things and meeting people. I love makeup! I’ve been working on improving my eyebrows (among makeup addicts, this is referred to as “brow game”), and have made progress during the past year. Again, this is what I enjoy, not what’s important! I also enjoy fashion, especially shoes. I love animals and playing with my cat, Sophia. I like to make things and be creative. I am such a psych nerd and am so into it. I could talk about psychology and have philosophical conversation for hours and not even know that much time passed. I really enjoy working with people and understanding how they “work.” One of the biggest highs is when someone has an insight that just sorta shifts their world, or being able to look back at where someone was a year ago and where they are now and how that person has grown. It’s a feeling that gets me at my core and is pretty awesome.
I have the rest of my self-interview, but I will save that for another post so this isn't too long. I hope this starts to show some of who I am!
