So I had a completely different post ready to go up today, but then I checked my mail. And after weeks of waiting (okay, really it was only 9 days, but still it felt like weeks), it finally arrived. And I am doing my happy dance.
Mondays get a bad rap (“Sounds like someone has a case of the Mondays”). So I decided to try to add a bit of thoughtfulness to the beginning of the week.
thought [thawt], noun – the product of mental activity; the act or process of thinking; a consideration or reflection
-ful [foo l] – a suffix meaning “full of,” “characterized by”
thoughtful [thawt-fuh l], adjective – characterized by consideration or reflection; mindful
So today I give you this quote by Douglas Adams for your consideration and reflection:
I am an introvert.
Most people don’t realize that about me. I have no problem meeting new people. I enjoy spending time with friends. I can talk to strangers. I have what you would call “good social skills.” So when I tell people that I’m an introvert, the main response I get is “but you’re not shy!” Although many people associate introvertedness with shyness, not all of us are actually shy.
I don’t think anyone I know would call me shy.
