The one thing I am passionate about...
I love to surf and keep myself as physicaly healthy as I can by working out at the gym and doing yoga. I probably find it more difficult than others as I suffer with ankylosing spondylitis which is a pain at times, but has motivated me to try even harder.The one thing that has changed my life is love. I could write a book on how I see love, and all the words would not come close to describing what it is to me. How do you describe a sunset to a blind person? It is the difference between tasting an apple and reading a description of how it tastes.
I typically spend my leisure time
I tend to spend my free time either surfing, or pursuing and interest of mine, whether it be going to the gym or practicing guitar. I teach guitar. However, the only thing that truely actualy means anything to me is love. One look into the eyes of someone you truely love and nothing else matters anymore. Everything turns to silence. In the silence of love, you will find the spark of life. Everything else I do I feel I do in some way because I link it to love. Surfing for instance; when I surf I feel as if nothing else matters, I am completely in the moment! Similar to love.
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
I don't tend to have a high view of myself and tend to think people see me as cold and strange. However, people have commented about how open, accepting, honest and affectionate I am.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Probably 'the shack' as it really moved me! Although it seems to be 'partially' a christian book, of which I am not...the story was very moving and touching, and mirrored to me the depth of love I can feel for other people.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The depth of love I feel
- My love for deep connection
- My passion for love
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
The depth of which I can experience love and my passion for it. There is nothing that can even begin to compare to simply holding the one you love, feeling them gently breathe, holding their hand and looking aimlessly into their eyes, getting lost in the endless emptiness and love inside.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Passionate, Romantic, Spiritual
A little more about me
I suffered a very deep depression about 5 years ago which took quite a while to recover from. I still suffer from lack of self confidence and self esteem which is slowly improving, but for this reason I'd just like you to be understanding. I often fear that people see me as cold or strange. If I come across that way (although I'm not sure if people even really do see me that way, it may just be my anxiety!) please realise it is just my lack of self esteem and give me time to open up more (although I think you'll find I am very open from the start).
