I'm just the girl next door. A ton-boy at heart, yet classy and sassy on the surface, but warm & soft on the inside. Most people don't know the "Real Sandy". The girl that writes poetry to express her innermost emotions that have no words, the girl that cries when a love-song plays on the radio, or watches the same "chic flick" over and over and still cries every time, or the girl that day dreams about spending romantic vacations with her best friend, and dreams of finally meeting the love of her life and spending eternity with her soul mate- whoever he is. While you may judge me by my outward appearance. . . I truly believe that it is what is on the inside that truly counts. I think that true beauty comes from within and appearance is just a matter of perception and being too superficial can get in the way of what is really important and what matters most. I tend to believe that most people are beautiful on the inside, despite their outward appearance. It's like finding an old book, whose cover has been damaged and torn. When you open up the book, and take a hard look at what's on the pages inside- true beauty is revealed. My closest friends say that I have an "Old Soul", & those that truly know me say that I am even more beautiful on the inside. I am the most giving, trusting, loyal, compassionate person you will ever meet. Sometimes TOO trusting, and TOO giving. Consequentially, I've been burnt lots of times from having too big of a heart. . . . if that is even possible. (it is, trust me!) I would rather have Honesty and be hurt, than to be caught up in a tangled web of Lies. White Lie's, small lie's, twisted Lie's. . . . a lie, is a lie, is a lie. I've never been "good" at lying- so I just don't do it. In the end- no matter what the situation- the truth is ALWAYS the better way to go. Even if the truth hurts! Nothing hurts more than a lie! Just Don't Lie. . . . it's that simple! I am known to have a Heart of Gold, intelligent, articulate, and I have Integrity that truly means something to me. I am trying to make a difference in other people's lives, and before everything I do, I always make sure that it is not something that would hurt someone else, and that in some way, would be helpful in someway. I figure that God has a purpose for each and every one of us- & it is up to us to seek that purpose out, and to fulfill our prophecy. I've come to the conclusion that my purpose is to help others. . . If you know me at all, then you will agree that I'm 10 for 10. WOW- right on target!
