Hello! I'm RoseDaughter5. I'm a fairly shy person, so I rarely reach out to others, but if others want to reach out to me, I welcome them wholeheartedly. I'm only in my early twenties, but I'm a motherly sort of person. In my group of friends, I'm the shoulder to cry on, the ear to talk to, and a provider of tea and chocolate when necessary. I love to spend time outdoors, though I don't get the chance as often as I'd like. My favorite "sport" is hiking. I enjoy cooking, but I'm not very accomplished in the kitchen. I'm very much a bibliophile (lover of books), and am currently working on a story of my own. I am also a violinist.

My dog is pretty much my raison d'etre. She's thirteen, but she still behaves as a puppy, and she's my best friend. She's a sweet, empathetic, and (mostly) well-behaved dog named Daisy.

I've been ill for a few months, both mentally and physically, and I haven't really been paying attention to my diet and exercise plan. So, I've decided to restart. Fortunately, I've only put on a few pounds more than when I started, so it's only a little bit of extra trouble. With SparkPeople, a gym membership, and a dog to get me outdoors regularly, I should be able to regain my health and my ideal weight.

Other Information:
�Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.�
