You’re an Energizer. Open-minded and curious, you tend to be positive and upbeat. You’re a good listener, and your friends often rely on you for advice and support in good times and bad.Things might be feeling a bit monotonous at the moment. You could probably do with shaking things up and having a break from your usual routine. You have a healthy approach to life. Having a regular spiritual practice that gives you a sense of inner peace is one of your priorities. Allowing yourself that kind of time for reflection will have a positive effect. For someone who enjoys the buzz of social gatherings and lively events, the importance of a contrasting space in your life is especially important. You find great strength and comfort from being at one with nature. Make sure you remind yourself of how special those moments can be for reinvigorating.
For you, the sign of a good relationship is that you don’t stress out about the small stuff. You may have your ups and downs, but there’s no one you’d rather spend the rest of your life with. As a True Romantic, you’ve got a whole lot of love to give and you like to lavish your partner with romantic gestures. You have strong instincts and a good understanding of who you are and what you want from life. You like to follow your dreams and believe in happy endings. You are expressive and enjoy coming up with new ways to show your partner how much you love him. Intense experiences appeal to your sensual side. It’s all about immersing yourself in the fairy-tale feelings of being in love. For you, it’s the little things that make being in love so special: a sunset stroll on a beach, holding hands at the movies and feeling protected and cared for.
You like to be able to treat yourself every now and then. You have a passion for fashion, so you would love to be able to indulge in a shopping trip whenever the mood strikes! You have a very healthy approach to life. You know that true happiness doesn’t come from material things or possessions. It goes much deeper than that and is all about valuing those things you can’t put a price on. You like to care for those around you, and if they’re happy, you’re happy. You appreciate that both highs and lows make up the balance of life and you always try and stay spiritually strong and focused.
Mornings are a special chance to spend time with your partner. You know what a difference it makes if you eat a breakfast before you start the day, and you’re on the right track with your health. You believe in a balanced approach to living a healthy lifestyle. It’s all about moderation. You enjoy exercise and eating healthily, but you’re not going to let it take over and run your life. You manage to fit physical activity around your everyday activities, and your happy-go-lucky attitude means you won’t stress about it too much. You know that a couple of missed gym sessions won’t make a huge difference to how you feel overall. It’s definitely not worth worrying about, that’s for sure.
If you took some time out to visualize your dream life, you could probably see yourself away from the rat race, chilling out on a beach. Nothing puts a smile on your face like waking up to sun, sea and sand without a care in the world. Fresh fruit, seafood and not a cloud in the sky…sounds like paradise!
You’re creative and inventive, with a flair for transforming everyday objects into something special. After all, what’s the point on spending a heap of dollars on something you can probably make yourself? Plus, great homemade gifts have that personal touch you just can’t get elsewhere.
You like to take things easy. Life’s busy enough without having to worry about getting dressed up every day. It’s about maximum comfort with a splash of style, so it’s hard to beat your favorite pair of jeans. But don’t forget how good it can feel to give yourself a makeover every now and then. It can work wonders for your self-esteem to refresh your wardrobe, spruce up your hair and put on a great dress. So make sure you schedule a shopping trip and pampering session every few months. You deserve it!
You’re intuitive and find the beauty of nature visually inspiring. For you, getting away from it all means just that. Escaping into nature and heading off the beaten track is what you live for. It’s the perfect way to unwind and recharge those batteries. And let’s face it: Sitting out under the stars can be very romantic!
“I’ve often thought there ought to be a manual to hand to little kids, telling them what kind of planet they’re on, why they don’t fall off it, how much time they’ve probably got here, how to avoid poison ivy, and so on. I tried to write one once. It was called Welcome to Earth. But I got stuck on explaining why we don’t fall off the planet. Gravity is just a word. It doesn’t explain anything. If I could get past gravity, I’d tell them how we reproduce, how long we’ve been here, apparently, and a little bit about evolution. I didn’t learn until I was in college about all the other cultures, and I should have learned that in the first grade. A first grader should understand that his or her culture isn’t a rational invention; that there are thousands of other cultures and they all work pretty well; that all cultures function on faith rather than truth; that there are lots of alternatives to our own society. Cultural relativity is defensible and attractive. It’s also a source of hope. It means we don’t have to continue this way if we don’t like it.”—Kurt Vonnegut (Interview with Playboy, 1973)
