Appropriate for the holiday this weekend, I have been thinking about how my current relationship is a bit scary to me. If I have come to know anything when it comes to love, it is that the best relationships are not all sunshine and daisies. They are a source for personal growth and self-reflection. If you want to find yourself in a true and healthy relationship, you must find the kind of love that is not afraid to confront the skeletons in your closet with a positive and caring demeanor.
Perhaps some of you remember my post on Positivity in Real Life… If not, the post told of my experience working a wedding back in September about a bride who did not let some traumatic life events ruin her attitude during her wedding. I am happy to announce that her wedding photographer is a dear friend of my venue and shared some pictures of the Big Day. Is this not one of the most darling weddings you have ever witnessed?
Memorado has an interesting personality test going viral around the Social Media world. It is a psychometric test designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. Take it to see what type of personality you portray.
The test is based on four preferences for personality types:
- Where, primarily, do you prefer to direct your energy? E or I (Extroversion or Introversion)
- How do you prefer to process information? S or N (Sensing or Intuition)
- How do you prefer to make decisions? T or F (Thinking or Feeling)
- How do you prefer to organize your life? J or P (Judgment or Perception)
It seems the older I get the more I hear people complain about their birthdays and ages a lot. When someone wishes them a Happy Birthday the response is usually a grimace with a murmured thanks. In reality, though, we should all be thankful and blessed that another year has rolled around for us. Age means you’ve experienced yet another year of good and bad, and lived through them all. What a wonderful accomplishment!
