Food for Thought-Life, it’s a Balancing Act

I recognize my strengths. I recognize my weaknesses. Growth means change. Change means getting out of your comfort zone.

I’m a loner. I have people in my life, yes. But as many of you know from following my blog, I’m an introvert. I love my alone time. I hate small talk. Being around people too much can drain me. Being that I work with people, I tend to look forward to heading straight home when work is over. I’ve had my happy face on and made a lot of small talk while at work. By the time I’m done, I am done. But at the same time I do enjoy being around people. To engage in deep conversations. To catch up on friend’s lives. I believe it is safe to say that I am an extroverted introvert (ambivert).

I have been leaning much more to introversion the last several years. I’ve had plenty on my plate. Things I needed to deal with. Until I get a handle on serious matters, I withdraw. I need that time to figure it all out. I can and will open up about things but I need time to get there.

Now that I am in a better place. I find myself realizing that I isolate myself far too much. I need to learn to balance everything better. Work, alone time and play. The play has been missing from my life for a very long time. I have my adventures here and there but they alone are not enough. I recognize that I need to break out of my self-induced isolation and get out more and socialize. Balance. I recognize things have been imbalanced and now all that’s left to do is begin living again.

Balancing Act-Sometimes Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I went out last night. Yup! This introvert decided that it is time to start making this a regular part of my life. I had a great time with some great friends and naturally some great music!

It’s important to break from routine from time to time. To just let your hair down and have a good time. (Pep talk to myself)

I am a homebody. I work and I go home. I have little adventures from time to time. But I do not go out with any regularity. That’s going to change. It’s time that I have more fun. (More fun? Be honest….start having fun. The use of the word more; indicates that I have a life!)

Today’s theme is balance. I bet you thought I was gonna say fun, right? Nope! Balance! It’s important to rest when you need. To withdrawal from the world. It’s equally important to get out and cut loose.

Have a blessed day!
