#LinkYourLife 30 Day Challenge – 1

Dear World,

I wanted to introduce myself and give you a tiny glimpse into the woman who is me.  My name is Allison Hill; born Allison Claire LaFemina on October 20, 1973 in NYC.  I am forty two years old, stand at a towering 5’9″ tall without heels and have brown eyes and brown hair.  I am a very simple woman, yet completely complex which makes perfect sense since I said I was a woman.  I am educated, articulate, engaging, kind hearted, funny, loving, giving and a tab bit sarcastic.  I am a single mother of two teenage daughters and work a full time corporate job and write my heart out at night for my blog; AccidentallyAllison.

I find myself to be grounded and logical and always looking for a way through instead of a way out.  I don’t like mean people or baked apples or macaroni and cheese.  I love to cook and I’m pretty good at it.  I firmly believe the supermarket is the land of possibilities You can walk in and by the time you get home, unpack and create, you have a masterpiece in front of you.  My passion is singing and although I went to school for it, I only do it now when I am upset cause it helps calm me down.  Purple tulips are my favorite and I think they make people happy, or at least I know they make me happy.

I do not show vulnerability well, but I try my best to allow people in.  I’m not saying I’m good at it, but I’m saying I do try my best.  I am wild and crazy at times and can command an audience and have a room full of people laughing either with me or at me, but either way they are laughing which is a high I enjoy thoroughly.  I don’t take compliments well, but I’m not  sure I know a woman who does.  I can be shy and quiet at times, but that is a rare occasion.  I have no problem walking into a room full of people I don’t know and leaving having phone numbers and new Facebook friends.  I’m not really scared of anything now a days except the dark.  I’ve been through tough times that have brought me to my knees, but I don’t stay there for long.  I am strong willed, opinionated and even obstinate at times. I am however above all else fair.

I think I am a good communicator, both verbally and non verbally, but I also think I am a good listener.  I am observant and in tuned with those around me and more so with those I care about.  I try to anticipate other people’s needs and sometimes that leaves me longing to have mine met.  I am a mother, daughter, sister, friend, lover, girlfriend, ex-wife, employee and the boss.  My biggest accomplishments are my children, they are also my hardest job and the reason I drink wine.  Truth be told I’d still drink wine if I wasn’t their mom.  I would lay down my life for them and although I am a pushover at times, I hope I have instilled a resilience in them to always keep going.

I don’t live an extravagant life and that suits me just fine. I have a few very good friends that I consider family, I still have both of my parents, I have a humble abode, but above everything else, more important than any thing I could ever posses, I have my self respect and am filled with love and gratitude and what seems to be a half cocked smirk on my face.  This.  This is me.
