Can I Introvert Now?

Long week was long. Really, really long.

I’m tired. Burnt out. Exhausted.

introvert modeI’ve completely run out of almost all the supplements I’ve been taking to support my system. I just worked a 48.5 hour week at work, with only one day off after the previous 44 hour week. And on my one day off, I read tarot at the Pier Street Market.

This weekend (and week, really) was full of extroverted activities. Fun and amazing ones, and extroverted nonetheless.

Saturday was the first annual North Island Pride event in Campbell River. I was one of only a couple of vendors at the event, along with my friend Sarah of Glittering Streaks. I was so honored to be part of this event. There were a large number of young people there, which was fabulous to see. I was honored to be part of the festivities, especially in light of the Supreme Court ruling in the US this past week!

In the evening, the Tidemark Theatre hosted APOCALYPSTICK! – a drag show from East Van. I got all dressed up (sorry, I don’t have any pictures yet!) and Sarah and I went to the show. I felt really self conscious, but everyone said I looked fabulous. It was so much fun! The ladies were a hoot, and SO. MANY. COSTUMES! I love dress-up!

The show meant a late night, and I was back up and at it early Sunday morning for the Market again. It was a fairly quiet day at the Market, which was probably a blessing.

Even when it is quiet at the Market, I still have to turn my extrovert self on. (Not many people would come up to a introverted tarot reader at the Market. Selling your skills or products is, by nature, an extroverted activity.) I also keep my shields at a fairly high level because of all the people. By the end of the Market, I was done.

Alright. Enough whining/complaining/explaining. How am I going to get through the next bit of craziness until I can relax? (Well, let’s be realistic: until the NEXT bit of craziness begins…).

It’s time to engage introvert mode. I think tonight is going to consist of reading, and an early bedtime.

I’ve got about one more week before vacation time starts. I’m doing my best to keep my commitments down to bare essentials over the next week.

Right at this moment I’m listening to the birds chirp. And surfing the internet, watching random videos. But mostly just sitting.

I’m also going to take some time to put my feet in the ocean. It’s amazing how that helps to clear my head and relax me.

And, I’m counting down the days until I can sleep in! 🙂

Blessings,

Mary
