ROOT: Some of my favorite things

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — I think the only thing I am coming up with is that my favorite stuff stays within my comfort level. Maybe that is the key to all of this. The things that you consider to be your favorite will be a direct reflection of your personality. If you like to take chances, then your favorite things tend to be risks. If you’re someone who prefers a sense of security, then your favorite things will be warm and fuzzy. That actually makes sense.

So, by this theory, people who are partial to the environment enjoy vacations that consist of long walks in a forest. People like me, who prefer comfort, enjoy vacations that consist of long walks from the hotel room to the hotel pool. In extreme cases, it would be long walks from the Las Vegas hotel lobby to the bus that goes up and down the Strip. It’s a double-decker bus and it is really cool.

Me and my sense of security love Christmas, while someone who enjoys taking risks may enjoy the mysticism of Halloween. People who don’t particularly care about holidays enjoy any holiday that gives them a paid day off of work. People who don’t work and don’t like holidays are out of luck, I guess.

Now that you are all loaded up with this wisdom, it is time to go out and analyze your friends and family members. Carry around a pen and a notebook and ask a lot of questions. Then you can write down your answers and analyze them. After a while, everyone will stop talking to you, but at least you will have your data.

We all have our favorite things, but we never stop to wonder why they are our favorites. Some people love a rainy night, while others prefer the sunshine on their shoulders. Maybe if you stopped to think about your favorite things, you will find patterns in your own personality that you never knew existed. It could be like opening up a whole new you and discovering things about yourself that you never expected.
