This is the result of one of my birthday gifts last week. We’d just come back from ten fabulous days with extended family so for my birthday I asked for some alone time!
I’m an introvert, which contrary to many dictionary definitions doesn’t mean that I am shy or reticent or that I don’t like people! The literal definition of the word ‘introvert’ means inward focused and that makes sense to me! I have a very busy internal world and like to process things privately before I talk about them. I love proper conversations that challenge and change things.
I actually really love people and love being with people (which is a handy quality for a coach!) but when my batteries start to go flat I need a quiet space to recharge rather than looking for more social interaction.
This means that for my birthday, hubby took the reins so I that had a few hours of silence to felt this little guy and now I’m ready to go again and looking forward to a very exciting week ahead!
Self care is vitally important for everyone and it looks different for everyone too. It’s good to learn what you need and to have the courage to ask for it!
