Yes, I am. I’m an introvert. I’m not shy. I’m a noticer. I am a thinker. I’m an observer. I’m not stuck up. I’m not anti-social. I treasure my solitude. I’m not a fan of small talk. I prefer a few close friends. I am reserved, until I’m not. I appreciate true connection. If we connect, you matter to me.
I am an enthusiastic, self motivated, reliable, responsible, hard working, middle aged woman. My moto in life is ” If you want something done, learn how to do it.” I have many talents and skills that I have taught myself or learned by watching and doing over my lifetime so far, and plan to learn more. NEVER STOP LEARNING
January 2019 I cut refined sugars out of my life. The only types of sugars that I use now come from whole food sources such as whole fruits ie. bananas, apples, and mainly dates. When looking for grocery items to buy I always check the ingredients listed. If any forms of refined sugars or artificial sweeteners are listed I do not buy them. My only exception is the chocolate chips that I use are sweetened with stevia and erythritol, but I do limit my use of them and also combine with 100 % pure chocolate.
