This week has been busier than usual. Extra clients and networking events.
Halloween and Birthday parties to attend. Family visits and long overdue catch-ups with friends.
It’s been great but also draining.
I find myself depleted and craving some alone time.
I’m dreaming of lying on a deserted beach, sunlight dancing on my eyelids
Or, sitting with my notebook, surrounded by bush so dense that it simultaneously obscures me from view and protects me from the noise of the world.
It’s not because I’m shy, socially awkward, or a recluse
Just leave me alone
I have some extrovert traits. I like to party, mingle and titillate with the best of them, but I’m not going to be the last one standing!
I like to swoop under the radar. I need to sit back and observe…process.
I’m searching for the meaning, rather than happiness.
I adore solitude.
The thing I know is that being alone is good for me. It restores and balances me….and I really need some of that right now.
What do you know about yourself and your need for being alone? Do you crave it or shun it?
Are you an extrovert or introvert?
