You are considerate of others and often go out of your way to help someone, even when they cannot help you back. You stay rooted in your heart, and while you aren’t doing it for attention, your beautiful personality shines through everything you do.

You also deeply appreciate and value the little things in life. You can find joy and peace in simple things such as seeing a rainbow, seeing a baby smile, or even when a loved one gives you a hug or holds your hand. You’ve learned that the truly important things in life are not material or financial, but are those which your heart knows are important: the well-being of your family, friends, loved ones and of the people around you. Your stability proves to be quite a relief for those close to you, and it’s likely many people come to and count on you when the going gets tough. The world would be a better place with more people like you in it.

Harmony within the group and in your social circles is important to you, and you’ve realized that the only way to really succeed in life is by choosing the middle way. You deeply understand the principle of balance behind one of the wise sayings the Buddha heard while meditating, which helped him to achieve enlightenment; “Life is like the harp string if it is strung too tight it won’t play if it is too lose it hangs, the tension that produces the most beautiful sound lies in the middle.”
