H is for _______________

August 10th, 2011

HOMEBODY – I’ve always been one to stay at home.

HEALTHY – My health is always something I’ve been very conscious of – definitely a priority in my life. Although my ideas on what constitutes “healthy” have changed through the years.

HONEST – I was raised in a conservative Christian home and was taught the value of honesty. If I’m not charged for something at the store, I return to pay for it. I don’t take what’s not mine. I’m not expedient and don’t expect things for free or to come without working hard for them. I value honesty in others very much, sadly, it seems to be a quality lacking in our society today.

HARDY – I’m able to take a lot of things and put up with a lot. I can hike for miles and work for hours. That being said, I don’t do well without regular meals!

HELLO KITTY – Ever since I was a little girl I’ve loved Hello Kitty. I distinctly remember having a pair of treasured Hello Kitty sandals that I loved as a girl.

HIKER – I truly enjoy hiking and will choose it as a vacation activity any time I can. Probably this has something to do with my necessity to be outside and breathe fresh air.

HARD WORKER – you’ll find me always working, rarely sitting down. I work hard to accomplish my goals, this is how I can get so much done.

HOLISTIC – the older I get the more I would describe myself in this way. I try to focus on the whole picture, especially when it comes to food & health. I also appreciate homeopathic medicine since it takes into the consideration the whole person.

What words/phrases describe you that start with a H?

    Happy. Not all the time, of course, but generally? Yeah, pretty happy.

    Healer- Im Reiki certified and have always seemed to have a healing touch. People are drawn to me when they have no idea why, but Im often told just seeing me or hearing me laugh makes them feel so much better. This can be a blessing as much as it can be a challenge.

    Happy- my general disposition tends to be on the happy side although sarcasm is big part of it too, but there is usually a twinkle in the eye all the while.

    Honest.. Im pretty honest… and too honest sometimes too.. and thats the honest truth. ;)

    Ditto on Holistic, Hard Worker, Healthy, Hardie, Homebody!

    I love to hike too but dont do near as much as I used to nor near as much as I would like.

    I prefer being home. It’s the most comfortable place I know.

    I like holistic and honest…I can say the same.

    How about ‘Hippy-ish’ :) I am not a hippy, but sometimes it would be fun to be one ;)

      I always tell my friend that I wish I had been a hippie! I think it would be fun too~

    So I thought about happy and hopeful and honest. My brother would have said ‘hippy dippy’. But I settled on home.

    How about hypocritical? For some reason, hippopotamus keeps popping up in my head.

    My H’s for the day are: herbs, Hair, Horse manure and Handwriting. Homebody – that is ME! Love being at home. I would do quite well as a hermit. I absolutely love the hydrangea photo! The color is great. Emily
