Can you hear that?
That............is the sound of silence.
I'm having a night in.
One of my favourite candles is burning and there's a magazine still in it's plastic wrap waiting.
Look, there's even a glass of wine and some Swiss chocs (thank you sis in law).
This last month has been a bit full on. Routine has gone out of the window - in a good way.
So tonight, Sibs, Neil, cousin and uncle have gone out to watch the Reds rugby and I am staying in.
I have the rugby match on the TV, (just in case I spot them in the crowd) but without the volume.
I have loved having a full house this last month.
Just catching up with news from home, drinking lots of coffee, doing everyday things with my mum.
As special as it was, tonight is mine...
A long time ago, as part of my training for what I now do to earn a living, I learnt to use the Myers Briggs Type Indicator. This is a psychometric questionnaire for personality assessment. I wasn't surprised to learn that my attitude preference is 'introversion'. Basically, this means that I recharge and re-energise by preferring to spend time alone. The opposite attitude is 'extroversion' and this would be an individual who needs to be with others to feel energised. (This is a much simplified explanation, but gives you an idea).
Are you thinking about your preference?
So this evening I will embrace my introversion,
enjoy the silence and stillness
and get ready to face tomorrow.
