I am an introvert. I must have time to myself in order to unwind and recharge. But I also require balance. Too much time on my own makes me just a little depressed. It is too easy for me to forget to spend time with others, especially since having children. I spend my days refereeing and cleaning and chauffeuring and grocery shopping and potty training, but rarely remember to make time to connect with the people who matter to me. My downtime is partially spent developing online relationships, which are lovely, but I've been feeling the need to connect fact-to-face with my family, my friends, and even acquaintances
So for the month of October, I'm joining The Nester and hundreds of other bloggers in writing about the same topic for 31 days straight. My topic is:
Each day I will post something to do with friendship, family, and relationships. I will go out of my way to get out of my selfish hermit-bubble and really connect with people. The posts will include tips and ideas for fostering relationships, as well as my challenges to myself to get out of my shell and focus on others for a change. I'm a little scared of some of the challenges!
The relationships I'll be working on this month include: God, my husband Kevin, my two kids, other family members, my friends (those I see all the time as well as those I hardly ever see), acquaintances, and maybe even a stranger or two if I can find an appropriate event to challenge myself at.
I'd love to hear from you! What are some relationships you've been wanting to work on?
