The Head, The Heart and Intuition – The Dance Within

My heart bursts. Excited, child-like wonderment. It feels all the feelings. It is where my values, ideals, dreams and hopes lie. How am I ever going to do all of the things it is tugging me towards. Does it not know I can’t possibly do all of it at once?

Self – Care – why do I feel so uncomfortable saying those words?

I am going to admit something here. I don’t like to use the term “self care”. I have no issue with others using it. But when I say it, or read where I have written it in past blog posts, well I feel really funny. Uncomfortable. I feel fake. I don’t feel like it holds enough weight or meaning to how I really feel about “taking care of myself”.

Organising my Home Office Space – and a surprising revelation that I like super organised spaces

Sometimes I love to organise. Sometimes I am excited to declutter. It is a fleeting urge that goes away unless I take action straight away. If I give in to this urge, then momentum builds and a lot of overhauling takes place. Usually I end up overdoing it and become exhausted.

Who am I to Hide the Real Me?

Who am I to ignore myself? That inner, deep down self? Who am I to hide the real me, and show the world someone I am not, or just a tiny part of me? Why would I think that others want me to pretend to be someone I am not? Why wouldn’t they want to meet and know the real me?

Starting to Fall in Love with Me and Embracing my INFP Introvert Personality Type

I run out of energy so easily. I am an introvert, so I need alone time to recharge, recalibrate. The world drains me.

My flavour of introversion means I get particularly overwhelmed and drained if I need to organise systems and people. I used to hate the fact I would try and set up a routine and not be able to stick to it. I hate having commitments. It makes me feel trapped and held down. I like spaciousness and freedom to do what I feel like doing.

Self-Care as an INFP Introvert – A look back on an old blog post

It’s funny how the dots join together when looking back on your journal or old blog posts.

Today I was looking through some old posts I wrote (from one of my old blogs), and found one in particular that jumped out at me and made me chuckle to myself in an “aha” moment kind of way.
