So often people ask me how can I do so much… I think they often assume I am wearing my superwoman cape every day to help me fly through life doing all that I do. However, I loved this picture from the The Happiness Project because it so clearly demonstrates my life and my energy.
Although most know me as an Extrovert- I truly am an introvert, or maybe more accurately an Ambivert- basically I’m a social introvert. Ha. What that means, is I can do a lot and run around a lot, but I MUST then rest a lot.
This past month my business the Care Package Queens at Front Porch Packages had our largest month to date in shopping, packing and shipping out college care packages and it was EXCITING and it was EXHAUSTING. So the best way for me to be able to go hard at it is for me also to go hard at resting.
Yesterday was a jammies day and it was WONDERFUL. I think around 6:30 pm my husband and I finally got dressed to go out to dinner because we were both too lazy to cook! Ha. We had to really battle which would be easier, getting out of our pajamas or getting out the dinner recipe.
My point to this post is simple. BALANCE. BALANCE. BALANCE. If there is one thing I thrive on is balancing my energy. Some days, many days in fact, I will fly full force with my super cape on and spread a lot of JOY, but by the end of the week or even after a few days, I MUST always find the balance of lying down and shutting it all out for a bit of off=time so my batteries can recharge.
