Your words and actions will influence what happens to you in the future. How (if at all) will you change your ways?
That’s the topic of the WordPress Daily Prompt, but it sounds like a good challenge for me to throw out to all the introverts of the world.
I do believe in karma, but in a good way. I believe that since I’m putting out good vibes about and for introverts that I’m helping myself by attracting all you wonderful people into my life. I’m enjoying getting to know all of you. Talk about wonderful karma coming back to me!
Through my research that I bring to you, I also learn more and more about myself. That brings an amazing sense of inner peace because so many questions are answered.
See, I have instant good karma coming back at me! I love it.
My next challenge for me is to continue this effort. There is so much more to be written about re-energizing yourself, managing your energy, dealing with social challenges and relationships. After that I want to take this to the work place and start talking about how to be an “out of the closet” introvert at work so that your boss and co-workers can come to appreciate you more fully. Let’s educate the extroverts and make our lives easier.
(A sidebar comment about managing our energy: I was reading the reviews of Marti Laney’s excellent book, The Introvert Advantage, and one reviewer thought the whole “energy thing” was just new age bunkum, hogwash and mumbo jumbo. Hhhmmm…. I can guess what side of the scale he was on. Energy is a very real, very big deal to an introvert.)
So my question to you, dear friends, is how (if at all) will you change your ways? Will you be out and (quietly) proud? Will you educate those extroverts near and dear to you so they can understand you? Will you continue to join this conversation and share your ideas and experiences with the rest of us?
