I became tired of wishing my work was easier. Tired of pretending to be someone I wasn't. Tired of going home grumpy and heading straight to bed because I was so exhausted. To love my work as an introvert, I knew I had to make some changes. Changes that would allow me to thrive as an introvert in an extroverted work environment.
I write when I'm inspired and publish only when I'm ready. I don't read comment forums and I block communication from harassing strangers. I connect with at least one close friend per day, preferably in person. I sing constantly, loudly, and usually only for myself (or dogs). I'm doing the best that I can and trying to greet each new day with wonder and gratitude.
