I’ve had three weeks of being an extrovert at work and I am totally burned out. I would love nothing more than to get out for a drive and some fresh air, but we’ve had a freak winter snow storm. We don’t see snow in my part of the world, so when we get two of inches the schools close down, businesses empty out and we stay inside. (Those of you who are from snowy climates can quit laughing any time now.)
I haven’t cooked decent food in forever. (Sorry fans of Three’s Cooking. I promise to get something new out soon.) I’m tired to the point my skin hurts. My usual introvert recharge mechanisms aren’t working… I can’t focus on a good book, computer games are boring me and the television can’t hold my attention. Sitting in a rocking chair with a cat on my lap or just taking power naps when I can grab them works the best, but it’s not nearly enough.
Tomorrow’s “debunking the introvert myths” blog will be all about changing from an introvert to an extrovert. After the last three weeks, I have a lot to say about the topic. So for now, I give you some inspirational thoughts. May your day be filled with peaceful, recharging introvert moments.
When she isn’t mired in exhaustion, Chris also contributes to the new food blog Three’s Cooking, learning to cook from the heart, for the soul.
