Diary of an extroverted introvert.

My social excitement and love for humans may quickly place me in that box of extroverts who lives for the lime light, when in reality, my introverted self just desperately wants some time alone. It is in this space, this quiet where I restore my energy, I find my peace.
I labeled myself an extrovert for most of my adult life and honestly, in my 20's, I probably was one? But now over the halfway mark of my 30's and 3 kids deep, there's nothing I love more than the peace and quiet of nothing. A warm latte and a good book. A solo grocery trip and a reservation for 1. Anywhere.
I wonder how many of us are socially confused? Who think because we enjoy social conversations and can hold our own in a crowd that we must be this label, this person. I love getting older. I remember hearing @theellenshow say how much she loved turning 60 because of the wisdom she had gained. While I'm not at that level of wisdom just yet, there is truth to this whole getting older thing. I am discovering who I am, and who I am not. I am choosing which table I can sit at, and which one I choose not to. I can be honest with my feelings, not fearing the heaviness of the weight they hold....
