It’s been a great week here. I hope you’ve had as much fun with this week’s blogs as I have had creating them for you. It started off with an introvert celebration. I quit writing about what everyone thinks is wrong with us and started writing about what is wonderful about us. Stay tuned for more of that tomorrow.
On Monday I did another Share Your World. I need to revise my answer to the question What type of transportation would you be? The day after I posted my SYW, I found this. This is what I would be. An ELF. It’s a tricycle with a composite shell for weather protection. It has a solar panel to charge the battery for an electric motor that can assist you on the hills, and give you lights if you’re riding when it’s dark outside. The manufacturer, Organic Transit, is hoping to open an additional factory here in Oregon where I live. Too cool! It even comes in Wasabi Green, one of my favorite colors. And it gets about 1800 miles to the gallon.
Tuesday’s revelation was that I don’t like wearing new clothes to the office because people notice and then want to strike up conversations with me. Small talk, ugh. I felt pretty silly when those pieces finally fell into place, hence the title “Laughing at Myself“. A big THANK YOU to those of you who understood that feeling. It’s nice knowing I’m not alone.
We got off to a fabulous start with the first IBQ (Introverts Blog Quietly) writing challenge. That was so much fun. I’m still trying to catch up on everyone’s writing. I loved reading all of it, and enjoying all the comments that went back and forth. It’s great writing positive things about what makes introverts special. The words “create”, “calmness”, “soothing”, “peace” and “bliss” came up often.
We had another entertaining cartoon from INFjoe on Thursday.
I haven’t shared a good TED talk in a while, so here is one to uplift you. You’ll laugh, and take away a new mantra: “You can do it, yes, you can can.”
Have a quiet day!
Hi. I’m Chris. I’m an introvert. Look for my ongoing series celebrating introverts (Sunday), writing prompts (Wednesday) and introvert cartoons (Thursday), plus anything else interesting that I find in the meantime. Come and share with like-minded introverts. I also contribute to the new food blog Three’s Cooking, learning to cook from the heart, for the soul.
