yesterday, i crashed.
actually, it was a spiral downhill starting on tuesday.
i love entertaining.
i love my family and my friends.
but when i get too much of a good thing it leaves me exhausted.
my sister-in-law and i talked about it on monday evening.
we talked about how i am an introvert, and as much as i love to entertain and be around MY people, i crave time alone.
and, when i have too much time being “on”, i crash.
i crave silence.
any bit of noise yesterday and tuesday shot right to my raw nerves.
my throat got sore, my body ached, but most of all, my mind needed quiet.
i slept all day yesterday.
the sleep was needed…the quiet was needed even more.
today, the noise isn’t so loud.
today, the to do list isn’t so daunting.
today, i will continue to recognize my need to recharge.
a year and a half ago, i began to read the book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can’t Stop Talking after my father-in-law recommended it to me.
i picked it up off my nightstand last night and am determined to finish it.
are you an introvert or an extrovert?
home is…life as an introvert.
