Introvert Moments

While I’m certainly an extravert (an ESFP, for those of you who are familiar with the MBTI), I often describe my personality as that of a shy extravert.  I definitely gain my energy from being around other people, but I’m not very outgoing and don’t like being the center of attention.  I much prefer to be on the edges or in a small group, looking on as others take the spotlight.  I have a great appreciation for quiet moments and one-on-one conversations, and there are times when I’d rather just sit alone, taking it all in.

Mornings are one time, in particular, when I like to keep to myself a bit, easing into the day slowly and calmly whenever possible.  I find that I am most content in the mornings (and, therefore, most enthusiastic and optimistic about the rest of the day) when I can spend some time savoring a cup of hot tea (my favorite is a chai latte).  During those “introvert moments,” I also enjoy writing in my journal (I’m currently using a beautiful peacock-themed one that was a gift from my Mama) and/or reading a good book that makes me think and gives me a new perspective on things (This week’s pick is Jen Hatmaker‘s 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess).

What do you do to relax or when you need some time to yourself?

    You already know these about me! I journal, drink a hot beverage, write poetry, or browse a favorite store all by myself. I love to just have a time of being completely unengaged with my normal day and routine. Cute journal, btw. 🙂
