"Your Power Element Is Earth and Wood"

Your Power Element is Earth
Your power color: yellow
Your energy: balancing
Your season: changing of seasons
Dedicated and responsible, you are a rock to your friends. You are skilled at working out even the most difficult problems. Low key and calm, you are happiest when you are around loved ones. Ambitious and goal oriented, you have long term plans to be successful.

Your Power Element is Wood

Your power colors: green and brown

Your energy: generative

Your season: spring

Like a tree, you are always growing and changing.
And while your life is dynamic, you are firmly grounded.
You have high morals and great confidence in yourself and others.
You have a wide set of interests, and you make for intersting company.

My new blogging buddy dreamangel75 has tagged me. It is the second time I have been tagged but I thought I would go ahead and share more about myself since, one, we have so many new ladies who have joined the Sisterlock family, "welcome," and two, I love this game (((((Laughs))))).

1. I recently lost a total of 25 lbs to date. I was a size 7/8 all through highschool and college and when I graduated from College I began to gain weight. So I am happy to say that I am back in my size 8 (Hallelujah).

2. I am currently working on my first novel. It is a Christian Fiction novel. I also write Christian Devotionals. I attempted to write my first book when I was in 7th or 8th grade (I only wish I had a copy of what I wrote). Anyway, my current book is a work-in-progress. Stay tuned.

3. I moderate a Christian Connection group. It is a group that enables Christians from all over the world to connect. The group is called God First Christian Connection. If you are interested in joining click on the link below: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GodFirstChristianConnection/

4. I am currently learning Spanish, I have always wanted to learn Spanish. After completing my Masters Degree, I now feel like I can learn a second language at my leizure. Actually, as much Spanish as I have taken in school, I should be fluent by now (umph).......But I have a deep yearning too learn Spanish. I love the Spanish culture, especially the food (smile).

5. I have a crippling fear of dogs and small spaces. I remeber when I had to get an MRI, I was terrified, something that should have taken 20 minutes took more like an hour for me because I was so afraid. The technician had to keep stopping and talking me through it. Finally, he, the technician, covered my eyes with a towel, I just continued to sing Christian songs in a light voice too keep me calm, I am happy to say it worked. "Next time I will bring my DH with me to help me through it."

6. Believe it or not I am actually a little shy and introverted. In my profession I have to be more extroverted and people often make the mistake that I am very outgoing, because I do a lot of public speaking, "which I love," and one-on-one Couseling, therefore people feel very comfortable with me, but actually it takes a lot for me to work up the courage to just freely talk to people in social settings unless I am among friends or family.

7. My birth name is "Abena" and it is from the Ghanaian Fante Root. The meaning of my name is "Girl born on Tuesday," and yes I was born on a Tuesday. Meaning-(Warm, gentle, eloquent, and compassionate)

Now the rules: You have to choose 7 things to share about yourself. Then choose 7 people to tag. Now don't forget to post a comment on their blog informing the person that he/she has been tagged, so that they can join in on the fun.

Greetings: One of my best friends is launching her new business "SWEET EXPRESSIONS DESSERTS." She makes some of the best desserts I have EVER tasted, and as I told you all on my previous post, "sweets are my weakness," so having a best friend that can bake soooooo good makes me constantly practice self-control (smile). Please check out her blog and order some treats for family, friends, events, or just your own personal indulgence, "believe me, you will not regret it!"
