Things You Should Know About Introverts

I want to acknowledge I haven’t written this week in the way I need to but more on that later. Let’s revisit being an introvert for now. Yet another piece that describes how I feel so perfectly. 🙂 I was nominated for an award from a fellow blogger (http://lisalisted.com/2014/08/06/very-inspiring-blogger-award-say-whaaaaaaattttt-thank-you/) and will mention it when I have a chance.

      • Luckily, I have a wife who is very understanding of my introverted behaviors, after outings like this one, she gives me all the space I need to recover from it. With that space I gain the calm you just referred to, I really enjoyed the post. Thank you!
