Introverts are people who get their energy from spending time alone, according to Dr. Jennifer Kahnweiler, author of The Introverted Leader: Building on Your Quiet Strength. “It’s kind of like a battery they recharge,” she says. “And then they can go out into the world and connect really beautifully with people.
It’s been a roller coaster and y’all will agree with me. For those of you who are busily engaged in work, i must say i’m a bit envious 😂. You all know how “a workaholic” i can be sometimes; or let me just say, for the records, i love to work!
The current situation at hand today in the country or let me say, in some parts of the world right now has caused most of us to be “by-force introverts” . We have been asked to stay home. Some of my friends are feeling uneasy already. Aww too bad…
I enjoy my own company sometimes. I believe that i become much more productive when i am alone. Call me a Mel or a 1st class introvert🤷. I do party sometimes, beach-walking “guru”, watching movies at the cinema, shopping with the Trio on vacations (i so much miss my girls with this). Maybe, i’m not completely an introvert. Call me “extroverted introvert” or vise versa!😀😃😃
I actually didn’t have any move for this long break- two weeks of Homely-affair! Wow! I’ve got to make good use of this long break huh?
So, this Doctor friend of mine got a great idea (Ps: Dr, you’re a life saver). A Challenge! – Lockdown challenge. This Challenge started yesterday, which is the beginning of the 14 days period.
“Create something within this 14 days and let the entire world know what gifts or power you have within” .
Interesting? Very intriguing too and challenging i must confess.
On Monday, i thought hard of something invaluable to create. But i have found none.
I didn’t give up with my search to create something. The plan was if i can’t create something, then i’d have to make good use of what i have. So i drew a timetable for this Lockdown Challenge and suggested to a couple of close friends to come on board for this challenge!
I’ope to get a positive feedback soon after this.
Tuesday– Morning: I Prayed and fasted to God about the current pandemic in Ghana. 2nd Chronicles 7:14.
Afternoon: I read one of my favourite stories from the Craine Prize for African Writing 2016. Title of the story : “What it means when a Man Falls from the Sky” (A very interesting read it was).
This lockdown/self-quarantine doesn’t worry me so much. Staying home is not a problem. I really enjoyed #Day 2 with my circle and schedule!
Evening: A whatssap video call to an old time friend. ✌
I promise to keep you posted!⭐️
Wait for #Day 3 tomorrow…
Remember, be safe. Stay home!
