Use one word to describe your personality

Positive. (in a very deep way, which means I accept and welcome moments in which I am not happy, when these are necessary for the process of moving forward. Positive, to me, means "forward-looking")

What was one of the hardest times in your life and how did you overcome it?

My dysfunctional marriage. I overcame it once I learned enough that I needed to let go of those things I can't control, and a fortuitous event gave me three weeks of fighting-free time to THINK - to have the psychological room in my head, for the first time in 6 years, to get beyond the paradigm of instant relief / gratification. An epiphany soon followed, and my life was forever changed.

What's one thing you can't live without and why?

Physical affection. I don't know quite why. Maybe it's because I want to let people in and be let in, and touch is such a beautiful confirmation that this is happening.

What do you do for fun?

Sing. Dance. Read. Write. Make love. Travel. Connect with people. Laugh.

What do you look for in a friendship?

Honesty. Authenticity. Deep connection. A willingness to put aside social habit and be real. Consideration. Consciousness of self and other. Kindness. Positivity. Curiosity. Desire. PARTNERSHIP. The sense that, within the bounds of our relationship, we are co-pilots, and that whatever problems may happen, we will decide and work together on what comes next, in partnership with each other.

Introduction

Hello, my name is Mitch! I'm a medical interpreter, and I have a mind that both seeks and finds peace and also becomes unsettled sometimes. I write a blog about the things I have learned.

What MitchL is saying about this Meetup Group

Open-minded bunch of folks! What I have done with this group is good, and I believe there is even greater potential to be realized in future events. I'll be back.
