Beyond a doubt.(1)
Call me. More an introvert than an extrovert. I turn my
thoughts more inward than outward. Don’t know if that’s a good trait. Or bad.
Probably doesn’t matter. It is what it is. Doesn’t matter whether one has blue
eyes or brown eyes. Or whether one is
right-handed or left-handed. Anyway, I’m inclined to believe. That it’s better
to be an introvert. Because I want to
connect to my spirit. And I have the notion that the spirit is the interior
portion of my being. Can’t prove it. Yes, there’s so much that I can’t prove.
Beyond a doubt. Instead, I speculate. Take educated guesses. And mostly attempt
to believe what I want to believe. Might as well. Sure beats not believing anything. Used to be
that I was a thoroughly Doubting Jim. Even doubted my own existence. Wasn’t until I started to fall in love. With
someone. Or something. That’s when I finally believed in something. Beyond a
I can't resist. I am an extrovert, brown eyes and right handed. My Spirit is absolutely in line with me. Wow, I get in the grocery line and am told many times to help someone pay for their groceries or pray for them. I love it.
However, I struggled this am as my 20 year old, who just finished his first week working in a year or so,just texted to tell me the spare little plastic thing he has been driving on, finally busted...7 months, I think that must be a record for a plastic spare. He did say he had a ride to work, but he needed a tire for sure now. I just sent him a thumbs up reply. I know he is shocked. But since he doesn't like my advice, I am not offering to help... boy, is it hard. Maybe because I am older? I did question adoption at 45! too late.
Today I am deciding to have a great day. I painted my toenails red! First time for me as I have always been a 'picker'. Now I have long toenails and fingernails. I have finally grown up at 66. Must be my new circulation. Hubby was laughing at my toes today... he was glad I didn't paint his!
Since I have attention problems my thoughts are all over the place... I suppose this is a good example of that.
Have a great day Jim.
Ahhhh, Jim and Sharon. You are insidious . There I was in the shower mulling over an area of thought that has bugged me for a long time, and I had decided to frame it in a new topic. Now you two post this stuff, and it's me who can't resist.
The thing I was thinking was the number of times in our lives when the correct action is decided by analog thinking. The gray area. And then, how many decisions are quantifiable . Something either is or it is not. Below 5, bad. Over 5,ok. But what if the number is just 5 ? I looked outside this morning and the sun was shining and the sky was blue. Good day for a walk in a T-shirt. Go out, and brrrrrrr.. The wind is blowing and the temperature is cold. Bad day for a walk with just a T-shirt.
But how cold is too cold ? When is my coffee too strong ?
I was on a jury once, and there was one guy who kept wanting us to look at the " preponderance of evidence. " Sounds good, except that there was very little real evidence.
Now I see that once again, I have gone off my topic. Maybe I never was topic. I never know with me, which is why I think that Musings is the best venue for my thoughts.
With poetry and song, I can usually keep on target. In most other things, my target gets lost in my meanderings.
Well... At least I can say I am left handed. For most things. For guitar I am right handed. I also can say with assurance that my eyes are some color, but I never can remember. I really can't say what color eyes any of my friends have.
I think I'll go work on my poems. Play a little guitar. Maybe sing.
Above 5 : Extrovert.
Below 5 : Introvert
Me : 5
Hi, you roped me in too! I am naturally an extrovert, forced into introvert type activities due to caregiving responsibilities. I am right handed with green sparkly curious eyes. My spirit is okay though at times a tiny bit overwhelmed with having to take on so much to do. I do respect all that the *quiet ones* the introverts have to offer, and so somehow introverts clump around me.
I'm big on musing being one who wrote constantly unremittingly unstoppably since reading Anne Frank's diary when a pre-teen. I love words and turns of phrases and writing which transports.
Have a great day, Jim, Sharon, chrisp1653 and the other forty or so people reading this so far.
