[title missing]

I don’t have a title for this post, but I do have a disclaimer: feel free to move along, and not read what follows. For 12+ years this little blog of mine has been a place for me to think to myself, with the occasional person looking in. It’s been a place where I’ve been spectacularly […]

Knowing when to shut up

Maybe that’s what I’m learning in this social media sabbatical I’m taking. (disclaimer: I peeked back on Twitter again today. But only for 15 minutes. And, I’m trying not to be so blah-blah-blahing on there) Stop what you’re doing and go listen to my friend Kari’s most recent episode of her podcast I Guess We’re Grownups […]

I’m just trying to find a bit more space in […]

Part of my new attempt to be alone is to take a little sabbatical from social media in my life. So, starting today, I’ve stepped away from Twitter and Facebook – at least for a while. For how long? I’m not sure. The biggest step for me was deleting the apps off my phone, so […]

to be heard

The other day someone posted on Facebook a link describing the INFP personality. Now while I know there’s many out there who dismiss Myers-Briggs and the introvert/extravert dichotomy, I still find myself reading about these personalities and can identify with some of their descriptions. Maybe it’s like a horoscope effect? Anyway. Part of the INFP description […]
