Prompted by my reading of Quiet by Susan Cain, this week we’ve explored introverts and extroverts their distinctive and their qualities. Including:
I Buy Coffee
And, Are YOU An Introvert or Extrovert?
Whether you’re a parent, a brother or sister, an aunt, uncle or neighbor, you know children. And, if you’re like me, quiet children can be a mystery.
Today, I’d like to let Susan Cain’s insights on introvert children speak for themselves. Oh, wait – let me say this first – my favorite quote from her about children is: “Don’t just accept your child for who she is; treasure her.”

I’m thinking through what this means for me today, tomorrow, and my tomorrows.
What does the Lord your God require of you?
He requires only that you
fear the Lord your God,
and live in a way that pleases him,
and love him
and serve him with all your heart and soul.
- Deuteronomy 10:12, NLT

Last week I wrote that self-esteem insurance would protects us against inevitable emotional pain and loss in case of an “accident”.
I would like that self-esteem insurance to be the best. I recommended “Triple A” Coverage”.
“Triple A” Coverage”
A – Access your strengths
A – Admit your weaknesses
A – Accept help from others
This week I’ll reveal practical ways that “Triple A” Coverage” helps me and recommend ways that it can help you too.

I’m a mystery. I’m an anomaly. I’m unique. I often choose a road that seems different than the roads others travel or think I should travel.
It seems like the greatest psychologists, analysts, and detectives the world has ever know would have a field day with me.
Why do I do what I do?
It’s obvious that we self-reflect when we make mistakes. Why? Why? Wby did I do THAT?
Self-reflection and assessment is common, and normal, at least for mentally healthy people.

Late Spring is a time for renewal. Everything in my garden is coming alive again. It’s a great time for reflection and self assessment. Through the month of June I’m writing about the importance of embracing yourself, the real, the whole you.
Gathering into yourself all the pieces of you.
