Happy In My Head
I’ve been reading the book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking and ran across a description of an introvert who’s “happy in my head.” I understand that description so well because that’s how I see myself as well. Even though I haven’t been doing anything lately but working, I’m happy in my head because I have so much going on there. I dream, I plan, I create, and I organize–my favorite things to do!
A New Discovery
One of my biggest discoveries this year from taking the Business Class for Creatives is deciding what’s enough in my life to be happy. For me, time is my core motivator for happiness. I want to be in charge of my schedule and work from home, so after a lot of trial and error over the past year, I think I finally got it figured out. Of course there are other factors that are important, but just understanding that about myself has been huge for me. I can work, create, and design at my own pace and my own schedule, and that fits my personality so well.
I love the quote by Mahatma Gandhi that says, “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” Everyone has the power to influence–even if you’re introverted and living a small and simple life, like me.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great day!
