A Thousand Thoughts.

I’m not shy. Just give me a reason to interact. I don’t talk often because I’m observing instead. It’s loud in my head. And, when I do talk, I enjoy talking about ideas and concepts; I’m terrible with trivial conversation.

I am an introvert.

As an introvert, I’m misperceived as an analytical thinker. Such a thinker breaks down information step-by-step into the minutiae of data, aiming to problem solve with a cause and effect rationale. But, that’s not me. I’m a critical thinker. I evaluate and interpret information with sound reasoning…okay, it’s not always sound. I try to explore elements not represented in the information given to me.

In conversations, I’m either asking probing questions to gather information for a better understanding, or listening and observing, taking it all in.

This way of thinking is so innate to me. My mind is always ‘on.’ Even when I’m alone, I’m thinking because I best make meaning from conversations when I reflect.

It is so exhausting, and I need to escape whenever I can.

I find solitude in simple indulgences, which are represented by these pictures displayed in my home (kept my promise!):

A East Indian woman striking a traditional Kathik dance pose. I am East Indian. I enjoy dancing. Nothing fancy, just the club kind (I missed my calling as a go-go dancer).

Cupcakes. But my love does not discriminate. It extends to all desserts. Yum.

thinkrainbows_piccollagePepsi box on a bicycle. I’ll be honest; I just like Pespi drinks and needed to fill a frame, and I can appreciate this photography

Chai tea served in a glass as it is typically served in India. I love chai tea. It ignites a nostalgic comfort.

Banksy. “There is always hope.” Don’t worry. Be happy. Positive thinking for simple living.

Buddha and lotus flower representing mindfulness and awakening to life.

Einstein. “I am thankful to all those who said no. It’s because of them, I did it myself.” The best life lesson ever taught to me. I’ll elaborate in an upcoming post.

Music, kettlebells (representing crossfit), and the beach offer me a lapse in time from reality by tuning out the outside world.

Abstract sketch of a dove. I don’t know why, but I think of my Grandma when I think of doves. RIP.

Woman travelling. I’m so blessed to have travelled globally, with a lot more to see. Okay, though I don’t look this dolled up when I travel, I’m always ready to jet set.

These pictures are worth a thousand thoughts. They symbolize how I escape from thoughts, how I turn off my thinking. It explains why I don’t like reading while at the beach, why I don’t know the lyrics or meanings of songs, and why I can’t do real dancing (anything coordinated). I don’t know if I’m mindful or my mind is full. (ha!)

My me-time grounds me. It helps me grow and reenergize. Tapping into my inner self is my power.  It gives me a sense of life.
