I’ve been thinking about this question.
Do you consider yourself to be an introvert, one who draws energy in isolation
or an extrovert, one who draws energy from being around people?
I took a test to see what I was. The test reveal to me that I am an introvert in public and an extrovert in private. I consider myself more of an introvert. I don’t like being around huge crowds. When I am, I seem to drift off. I don’t feel apart of where I am. I’m lost in the crowd so to speak.
When I’m alone, like right now, I’m journaling this blog. And will start others blogs to work on later. I have peace and quiet. I have no audience. People can drain my energy. LORD, have mercy.
When I’m in a small groups; setting in person, I tend to listen to what people have to say. And if I sit too long, I can get sleepy and tired. When sitting for an hour and a half, I can get restless. I have to wiggle my legs, stretch or something.
I noticed when I’m with extroverts, they are talkers. I have to find the a way to jump in to say something. However, I tend to think about what I want to say. Rather than to keep talking and not allowing others to speak. I like to ponder before I speak.
When I was journaling this blog, I was journaling for a while…took a break. Then I came back and reread it. And a few days later, I edited it and set date for it to post. This blog and all my blogs are future post. This blog post date was set last week.
I’ve been thinking about some of the things that I’ve accomplished in my lifetime, so far. I’m thankful that I saw my accomplishment through. Here are a few. And I had blogged about this before last year.

Being apart of a church worship team: Choir. 1996 -2001 : 5 years and 9 months.
Being a volunteer Church Greeter
Caring for my parents and some of my siblings
An Ongoing Accomplishment ~ Searching for my Family Connections.
When I began journey in the mid 1970’s. I didn’t know much about my family history. Now, I can trace back to the year 1765. I’m overwhelmed by what I’ve stumbled across.
I’ve discovered who all my great grandparents names. I’ve come a long way. I have a rich heritage. And with DNA testing, it’s amazing how we can connect with relatives. What a wonder!
It’s good to appreciate others and do things for one anothers , all in good intentions. In all what I have accomplished and inspired to do, I did for the glory of God. I’m thankful that the LORD saw me through it all.
I hope that you are doing well. Whether if you’re an introvert or extrovert , you are you. So, be you. Don’t be a copycat. Discover who you are and what makes you tick. May you accomplish things that you set your heart out to do. Amen!
Thanks for reading.
God bless you.
