How I Found Freedom in Being Myself

I have always been a fairly quiet person. I’m not big on having the spotlight on me or of dominating a conversation. I’m a better listener I guess. Like in meetings, sometimes I may have things to say but by the time I say them someone else says it first. I guess that is just a part of being an introvert. I think about things a little longer before I say them. 

When I was younger I didn’t know what the word “introvert” meant.  I thought I was just shy, but I’m really not. I used to think that I needed to be more outgoing and talk more to be accepted and fit in. For some reason quiet people sometimes get the rap of being weird ha! I mean I am weird, but that’s not why I’m quiet LOL.

Practicing Self-Care As an Introvert - Things I Do

My best mornings begin the same way. I wake up, say a prayer thanking the good Lord for another day, get out of bed and slip into my coziest house shoes and robe. I head downstairs and let the dog out, then I proceed to make my first cup of coffee of the day. I am usually up before everyone else in the house so I get to enjoy a few hours of silence to read, write or just think. This may seem mundane to some but to me its the best form of self-care.
