renee_woodruff_feature

I’m a very big relationship person. I believe in networking and in nurturing relationships. I’m exploring a lot of different things and working to connect with different people and inspire them in different ways.

I definitely have an outspoken approach when it comes to connecting with other human beings, but with writing, I’ve found that I’m a bit more on the conservative side because I’m more in fear of turning someone off or losing a reader because I don’t relate to them.

What’s my own perception of myself versus how other people perceive me? How does that affect the ways I relate to people? I’m still finding the balance of being me and representing the ideas I believe in while also trying to connect with many different people with different lifestyles.

I wake up every day with a full-time job to tend to, but also a million other things that I’m involved in. My life and my work and all the things I do are not just about me. They’re also about my friends and my family and all the people I’m connected with. That’s what I spend my days taking care of. My main priority is to go to bed every night knowing that I affected someone else’s life in a positive way – made them laugh or remember something or want to live in a different way that they’d like better.

I have such high expectations for my own life and for the people around me. I want the absolute best for everybody. I’m a little bit naïve in that sense, too – I always assume people are good and want to live life to the fullest. It helps me relate to people when I remember that living life to the fullest looks different for different people.

What gets me up in the morning is connecting with different kinds of people and working on a bunch of different projects. I’m on the go a lot, trying things out and writing about my life. I know that living my own life to the fullest makes me a better person for the people in my life, including myself.
