What are your THREE SIDES?

This prompt was on FACEBOOK today and got me thinking about myself. Here's what I came up with:

1. LONELY SIDE-comes from being an only child raised by a widowed mom. Then add a divorce or two plus a little rejection here and there. This side is always there ready to trap me in feeling sorry for myself but I FIGHT it daily cause I have so many blessings in my life.

2. SPIRITUAL SIDE-this is what keeps me going, my testimony and spiritual experiences daily with being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) since my baptism at age 8 and my conversion as a teenager. It keeps me going with HOPE and FAITH in guiding principles of TRUTH and a living PROPHET to guide me. My QUEST is for a unified loving family...together FOREVER.

3. CREATIVE SIDE-I love to be doing things whether it's WRITING books or POETRY, doing GENEALOGY research, TEACHing a class or ORGANIZING a special project, decorating my HOME, being in NATURE or able to COMMUNICATE with a friend or family member on a deeper level.

Guess you could say I have the YING-YANG in my life. Enough CHALLENGES and TRIALS to make me APPRECIATE the BLESSINGS that come daily of BEING ALIVE and able to experience this MORTALITY. Each day is an ADVENTURE!

What are your three SIDES, please leave a comment.

There have been many phases in my life, but I guess right now I'm on the creative side...I have a dream...to rob a phrase.

I think maybe I am an octagon and not a triangle.

right now there is a sad side losing my Dad, the determined side and the nature lover side.. Guess that isn't exactly what the the question was but they popped into my head...
