Walking a Fine Line

The heart carries all the love a person needs,
And it can grow larger and fuller
while more love comes into my life.

The Grinch’s heart grew three sizes
When he learned to give and be in a community.

Please don’t let me forget this–
I can be an introvert,
But let my heart grow by
loving, giving, and being part of others’ lives.

I’ve been pondering how to be an introvert and how to be connected closely with others, and it seems difficult to bridge the gaps between the two things. I’m friendly, I like people, and I like to be involved in my community. My partner seems to gain her energy from being around other people, while I am depleted when I don’t get time alone.

Being connected to others helps me tap into my creativity, while I have to have alone time to process it and make something of it.

I know I talked about “an introvert’s guide to surviving a hospital stay,” and I do very much plan to give you that. I’m in the process of figuring out what really did work for me and what didn’t.

I want to find my playful creativity for a while, but it seems to have taken a winter vacation–maybe to Mexico? I’m hoping it will come back home soon, or at least get in touch with me. I hope the creators who are reading this haven’t had their muses run away from them. May the Muse be with you!Forain_-_The_tightrope_walker


About lana1967

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
