Shyness is my super power ✨

Hi everyone! I’m currently writing this from my couch. I wish I could say I was feeling great, but I’m currently battling a stomach bug and sore throat cold thing..  Not one, but both!  Double whammy.. but you know what, I’m still smiling. I got to hang out with my puppy and had lunch with my hubby. Not bad! The best thing about being vegan is, we rarely get sick, and when we do it only lasts one day. Also, being sick always makes me appreciate feeling healthy so much more! And also tomorrow is Friday! 😁 So it’s all good.

Do you guys think is too early to start decorating for fall? Uh.. Because I just decorated our bar cart in all fall decor and I’m dying over it! I love fall so much! Ahhh. I’m so happy it’s here! October is my favorite month of the year. 🤗

On a serious note, I wanna talk about what I used to think was a flaw, but has now become my super power. I grew up very shy, very reserved, and VERY introverted. I moved a lot as a child, so making friends was hard. I’d get close to someone, and then we’d move again. I was always quiet too, so that didn’t help.

One thing I want you to know is that if I don’t talk to you, it’s never you. The way I try to cover it up is by smiling. Please don’t think I am not interested in you, I am, I just am not that best at showing it. I used to see this as a HUGE flaw, but now I know it truly was my super power!

If you’re like me, I want you to be proud of this trait. Being shy and introverted has many benefits. For one, we are amazing listeners. Do you ever realize how much we listen? We remember things and we really focus on the conversation. I feel great knowing my friends and family always come to me for advice. I think it’s because I always listen. If you’re talking to me, I will always listen more than speak.

The second benefit is that we are comfortable being alone. We like ourselves and are our own biggest supporters and best friend. Some people constantly need others around, I don’t feel that way.  😁 I’m satisfied with a good book, tea, and a yummy candle.

I am approaching my 28th year in life, and I feel like I have grown so much in the last year or so. Once you start learning about yourself, accepting yourself, and loving your flaws, you become infinitely happy!

What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to change about yourself? You got it in your mind? Here’s what I want you to do, start LOVING it. Loving the “flaw” and turning it into your superpower will change you. After that you’ll start loving the flaws in others, and then you’ll really start living. 😊

Hope your weekend brings you lots of joy and gratitude.

  1. I can totally relate. I was the shy, introverted kid and growing up I struggled because I thought something was wrong with me. We can only accept others to the extent that we accept ourselves.
