Why INFJ Personalities Often Feel Like Outsiders


INFJ personalities account for less than 1% of the population. It stands for Introverted, INtuitive, Feeling and Judging. This weird mix of traits means that an INFJ often feels like an outsider. Since INFJ are intuitive introverts, they can feel they are one step ahead of everyone and an observer. They can use their keen observational skills and “spidey senses”…

During vacation in Cali, free from obligations. How do I keep the vacay vibes last? Help. (http://babblingpanda.com/)

Keeping it Together


I have a confession to make- since vacation I have felt overwhelmed. I know I owe you vacation stories, and I promise they’re on their way, but right now I want to talk about “real life”. It’s hard for me to admit I am just keeping it together and that I may have a bit too much going on. I…

Trusting My Gut and Making New Friends


The room was full of unfamiliar faces and small groups of chatting coworkers. It was an introvert’s nightmare. I longed for a glass of wine in my hand, but I had given up drinking for the year so I was on my own, so to speak. My husband and I were at his company Christmas party. I longed for a…

Surviving the Introvert Hangover.


I feel a little jangly today. My stomach feels off, probably from all the sugar in the apple crisp last night (worth it!), or maybe all the socializing, and my muscles are sore from working out. We had a busy weekend and now I feel “hungover” of sorts. I get like this after a big weekend. (#introvertproblems) Except for my…

Happy 2017!


It is a new year! I am wishing you all a…..       There is so much pressure to perform better, faster, stronger and more efficiently in the new year. When I was in my twenties, I would write down all of these super-lofty “be perfect” goals the night before New Year’s eve. I would go out New Year’s…

Remembering Leonard Cohen


When I was younger, a toddler even, my parents (especially my mom) would play Leonard Cohen on the stereo while she cleaned during the week. We often played his music on Sundays- our day to play loud music and read or bake. Music was our religion since my mom is agnostic and my dad is atheist (or was). I grew…

Making Time for Myself


The title of this blog post is a bit of a misdirection. It is more of a public promise to myself to do just that. Currently, I rarely make time for myself. My husband calls me a “slave driver to myself”. When I did the Discovery Dyet this year (more on that later- in a word, fantastic) I found that I…

Restless


    I am restless. My mind is restless. It’s fidgety and can’t settle. There are ideas itching at the locked box in the back of my brain. My brain is whispering at me to take a leap; to gain the confidence to leap.   But to what?     Whenever I feel this restless feeling, I know that big…

Be A Rebel.


Be a Rebel. Be a positive thinker. I was standing with a bunch of moms once. I didn’t really know any of them. It was one of those weird city things where you end up in a group of random people and you eavesdrop on their conversation. They didn’t know each other that well either. Chit–chat ensued and they started…
