For 5 years, the Nester has been hosting a challenge for bloggers to write about one topic for the 31 days of October. This year is my first time to join in! My topic is one near and dear to my heart: QUIET.
This will not just be 31 days of essays about the subject of quiet (although I may have a few of those) … but it is my journey to seek quiet moments, to quiet my troubled heart and noisy mind, to deal with people who are giving the quiet treatment, to trust a God who may sometimes seem quiet … and so much more!
God has given us all unique personalities; mine happens to crave quiet and in fact, NEEDS quiet to function well. As an introvert in an extroverted world, I have had to learn how to deal with noisy environments and cope outside my comfort zone in times of crisis and chaos. I am looking forward to sharing some of my journey and resources for those who also seek quiet … and for those those don’t but have to get along with us “quiet types”. I also have lots of other topics up my sleeve to share on my chosen subject.
To begin, I ask you: do you consider yourself quiet, maybe an introvert – or are you a people-person and extrovert? Or a little of both?! Have you ever taken the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator test – or heard of it?? (By the way, I’m an ISFJ)
Do you enjoy quiet, seek quiet … or do you need noise – if just the TV on or music in the background – all the time? Tell me about YOU!
