Some days are just (WAY) better than others, and Friday December 13th, 2019 was one of those days!
Yesterday, a small dream of mine came true. Writing is my passion and I’ve written for as long as I can remember. But like many, I still have a lot of insecurities about it. But I took a chance and sent in an article I had written and posted on here (7 ‘Weird’ Things My Best Friend and I Do Together Because We’re Introverts) to the absolute mecca of Introvert sites (in my humble opinion) Introvert, Dear, and to my ecstatic surprise, they liked the article and asked to publish it!
Being an Introvert/INFJ, I was overwhelmed with self doubt and fear of rejection when I initially sent in the article, but I’m so glad I did! I am completely and utterly filled with gratitude and joy that they liked it, and liked it enough that they wanted to put it in their amazing publication! It made me realize that sometimes I really need to get out of my comfort zone and put myself out there (something I’m in no way comfortable with).
Introvert, Dear posted it to their website/blog (www.introvertdear.com) Facebook, and Instagram (and maybe a couple others) and I waited with (intense) anxiety to see if anyone was connecting to my words or not. It was super nerve wrecking, but thankfully, one by one I started to see the comments, likes, and shares and the feeling was honestly – unexplainable.
As a writer, all you can hope to do is connect with the audience. This article was a lighthearted tale about my introvert best friend and I and it was so magical to see others tag their bestie or comment on how they do the same types of things. Talk about a pinch me moment!
I just wanted to write this in appreciation to Introvert, Dear for making this little dream of mine come true. It has really reminded me to keep going and not to give up on my dreams.
