Last week I came upon this video. First I saw Joelle tweet about it, and then I saw it again on Tiny Twig. I watched it and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. I’m definitely an introvert and although I’m not sure I totally agree with her definition of an introvert, this video totally resonated with me.
I also thought it was especially perfect timing, because all last week I’ve been wanting to write something, but I couldn’t figure out how to put it. You see, last weekend I spent a lot of time in the car by myself. Over the last couple of months, I’ve noticed a pattern. I come up with really good ideas any time I drive by myself. I just thought it was kind of funny at first, but this video made me realize that driving is my “going into the wilderness.” I’m unplugged, and I’m by myself, for a few hours. This is really the only occasion that I can think of where these quiet circumstances fall in to place at this point in my life. I need to figure out a way to unplug more often.
The video didn’t really solve my problem though, because what I want to do is tell you about my ideas and that change is coming some time over the next couple of months. This three blogs thing was not sustainable forever, and really happened as a result of poor planning on my part. Don’t worry, none of this is going away, I’m just going to try to figure out how to tweak it so that it can all come together cohesively. So that I don’t have to divide myself up so much. Does that make sense? I hope so. I’m not ready to share my plans just yet, so I hope you’ll stick around and see what’s coming, because I think it has a lot of potential. Sorry to be so vague!
Are you an introvert? When do you come up with your best ideas?
