True Colors ~ get to know yourself & understand others

Well, I did my True Colors the first time about eight years ago and according to the first assessment eight years ago, I was a Gold-Green-Blue-Orange. That meant my Gold told me I was pretty much very organized, liked lists & making them, I liked lots of structure & rules etc. but my Green meant I was a thinker and liked to analyze and good at planning, strategy, and a great problem solver. My Blue said I was emotional, creative, & intuitive but the Orange was about adventure, risks, adventure, fun, & the freedom. My strongest traits were Gold my strongest & Orange my weakest. We are all of these traits just some are stronger than others.

However, as we change, grow, or are in situations which encourage certain traits we bring that part of us out. They also change over time and mine have certainly changed.

I recently did my personality assessment again and things have certainly changed. I was told that the assessment I did this past weekend was pretty much my True Color combination because I did the assessment in a safe & trusting environment. I am now Green-Orange-Gold-Blue. This assessment defiantly feels right!

It's quite interesting because these personality assessments can improve all types of relationships by helping us understand each other better by improving our professional, personal, and even platonic relationships.

Remembering a Remarkably Compassionately Strong Dene Woman

From my last blog, my auntie left us that evening while I was smiling in her eyes, holding her hand, and laughing at hearing mischievous and hilarious stories of my aunt's younger days. I was so honored she chose to let me be present when she took her last breath and went into the spirit world. I will seriously miss the "ol girl"; however, I pray and send my love to her children ,grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. My family are the ones needing the support and continual prayers. Grief has no time limit!
My auntie left a great legacy and many lessons for us to follow and guide us through this life. Her 79 years here left a mark in all our hearts...this is the great reward at the be surrounded by people who love you when you leave us. I'm so grateful the last thing she heard was laughter because that was what she was all about ~ JOY!
See you soon auntie and I love you with all my heart!
