Life As An Introvert: Introduction

Photo cred to my mom. When I first had a vision for my blog, I asked my mom to take a picture of me for my home landing page. This was the vision I had. When I saw it, I thought, no way! I can’t use that. It looks like one of those ads for Zoloft or Cymbalta! No people, there is nothing wrong with that, but it really wasn’t the feel I was going for. It wasn’t until recently that I thought this would be a really good image for this upcoming series of posts.

This reflects motherhood. Grabbing a quiet moment to take a break for yourself, enjoying a cup of coffee or tea, soaking in the sunshine, gathering your thoughts or just sitting back and watching your little creations play in their own sense of wonder. It also can reflect the life of an introvert. I have so much to say about this topic. Memories are spinning anxiously around in my head. As introverts, we tend to go off on our own to reflect and think. We aren’t talkers. We are patient listeners and when it’s our turn to contribute to the story, we carefully plan out our thoughts so they leave our lips in just the right way.

Others find us as timid, quiet, modest, shy and even “stuck up.” Almost as if it’s a bad thing to think before you speak. We’ve been labeled and somewhat closed out from certain groups of individuals, but for those who take a moment to get to know us ultimately are the ones who love to understand us and are quite often intrigued by us. We have a handful of friends and many acquaintances.

Time is valuable and there is so much to say on this subject. This is such a near and dear topic to me and one that I like to help my fellow introverts that I’m channeling my introversion to the max and really taking my time to dig deep within.

I was born and raised in Ohio. After graduating from The Ohio State University, I continued residing in Columbus, Ohio where I met my soon-to-be husband, Tony. Now relocated, married for 13 years and a mother of 2, I enjoy the simpler things in life and believe strongly in work/life balance. My passion is to provide guidance and share my experiences working from home for the past 10 years to those moms who are looking for the same path but feel helpless trying to find it. This, along with everything else “home,” is wrapped into one big blog of comfort at clumsymomme.com, which I began a little over a year ago.

I've recently gone back into the workforce part-time but, as always, I’m digging into a new work-from-home adventure and I’m so excited as it’s my true passion; nutrition, health & wellness focusing on Health Coaching.
