Today I am brave because I booked a flight to Oregon where I will meet up with a handful of women I have never met in person. I have been invited to stay a weekend by the ocean with these kindred souls. I’m a little nervous to be honest. I have a weird feeling in my stomach. I have never done anything quite like this. I have not flown alone on an airplane since I was around 5 years old. I’m extremely shy and very introverted.
I just took a quiz to see if I’m an introvert which is so SILLY because I already know that I am. I scored a solid introvert and of course it was no surprise. The description actually sounds nice but I also read some place that introverts are selfish. That part doesn’t sound very nice. You see I’m happy in my own little world, in my own little house with my own little family. I prefer a one on one friendship, I for sure prefer to express myself in writing, I enjoy solitude, I care not for wealth or fame, I have been told I’m a good listener, I’m not a risk taker, I like to celebrate my a birthdays on a very small-scale, I have been described as soft-spoken, peaceful and mellow, I for sure think before I speak, I don’t need much but I do believe this will be something that will feed my mama soul. It will be a time to be rejuvenated. I believe this group holds women of all different stages in their lives and this will nice to look back and see ahead and also relate to those in similar stages. I do happen to know that women need women friendships. I may be shy, I may be introverted but this doesn’t mean I’m not brave.
I will tell you my photo’s and my videos do show my true spirit but this side of me is only truly seen by my best friend motorcycle man, my children who came out of my body and very close family and friends. Other than that you will see me as more of an observer and never the center of attention. And Although I’m trying to be okay with who I was born to be, I often wish I could socialize better.
What does it mean to be brave to you?
