I wish I’d learned this sooner.
But at least I’m learning.
In the back slope of life,
I don’t have time for toxic.
I breathe in wellness.
I align with peace.
On the Sunday before labor day, I went out on a boat with a group of 8 people who I love or at least like. The boat ride was great with clear skies, perfect weather, and an almost full moon coming up soon. For dinner, we docked at a very busy restaurant where lots of other people had the same idea. The food was average at best, but that I can deal with. The noise level was another thing. I find it hard to concentrate on conversations when there are so many other conversations going on, and eating under these tense conditions often gives me indigestion. So after I’d finished eating, and I’d had enough of straining to hear the person next to me, I said, “I need to go outside and look at the moon.”
Three other people immediately followed me out to the dock.
The four of us stood there enjoying the relief of relative quiet. Then, my dear friend commented:
“The introverts got out first.”
“Yes!” I responded raising my fist in the air.
I was the leader of the introverts that night.
