I have actually been dying to post this woman since the month started! Meet Mrs. Cynthia Thorland who is I affectionately know as CT!
I've known her for 6 years, and I credit her with the start of my career and honing in on my passion for serving seniors. @cydthorland has always given me advice, wisdom, tons of laughter and is probably the first person who i allowed to break my "no hugging" rule. My admiration of CT is unquestionable. She is true to herself, ethical, compassionate, passionate, fights for what she believes in, and really cares about what happens to the underdog. Until I can travel to the fantastic places she does, I try to emulate her spirit and energy in the work I do.
Above are 2 photos of Cynthia. The more recent picture is of her in her element. She loves hiking and especially in Norway - so this photo depicts her in her happy place. The photo from her youth she thinks actually shows a bit of her personality! (see below re stubborn). She answers my questions below:
Q: What is your favorite thing about your body?
A: Favorite thing about my body - I think it's my hair. Because in many ways my, never dyed, hair says a lot about who I am - I am pretty earthy and my hair represents the fact that "what you see is what you get". My blonde hair also represents my Norwegian heritage, which I'm very proud of.
Q: What is your favorite thing about your personality?
A: Favorite thing about my personality is my perseverance. Often times my perseverance is in pursuit of what I think is right for my friends/family and others that I stand up for. My friends/family can depend on me, in spite of adversity, to push for them in a reliable and trustworthy way. (another word for this is my stubbornness!)
🥂Cheers to Cynthia for being a woman to look up to with a spirit and zest for life one should aspire to have!

Getting bit by the travel bug is one thing... Our first cruise didn’t quite impress and we ended up literally abandoning ship in Cozumel. Having sailed on a few Mediterranean itineraries since then it’s safe to say we caught the cruise itch for life. We have only ever cruised NCL and wonder what we might be missing..... 🚢
