How To Design a Lucky Life
I'm no extrovert and I apply most of these to my life already. being an extrovert is no requirement: generosity, humbleness, asking questions, getting to know your neighbors, never speaking negatively...none of these are "extrovert" activities. Sure it might help with asking questions, etc, but sometimes we gotta suck it up and do uncomfortable things. I clearly wasn't talking about the ones where extroversion isn't a requirement. I'm talking about things like "never eat alone". My point: I didn't say what I said because I refuse to "suck it up", I said it because instructions like those and "be social" are given as if it's not a difficult and stressful thing for a lot of people to do.

(thanks, Taylor, for the awesome banner!! admiring all their hard work from our front window: since they use all their fun ornaments to decorate their tree, momma gets to decorate her tree the way she likes it…neutral and pretty! the halls were most certainly decked! when that happens, our back doors fog over, making for the perfect drawing board: The Elf on the Shelf my personal fave so far…
