The Best Way To Stay Present

While in the process of writing the second draft of a guest post about my thoughts on my spiritual journey in relation to the film ‘Stranger Than Fiction’ I caught myself before getting fully lost in my own thoughts: ‘Wow…I’m not thinking of any other thing at the moment. I’m totally immersed!’

 

Whether that means that I might drop off the time spent on making music….I don’t know. I do know that music is still a bit part of my life. I recently felt my heart swell a tad while listening to an arrangement of Adele’s ‘Hello’ by an orchestra (I couldn’t find the version I saw on SBS though this one sounds similar to that arrangement).

 

Could that mean that I’ll be more of a listener (maybe the music discovery project might take the front seat more?)? For now, I think what I’m supposed to do with that reminder is to keep track of those moments when I am able to easily be present in what I’m doing

 

It’s one thing to find out that I need solitude to recharge, and another to find out what kind of ‘activities in solitude’ helps the most. It may turn out to be a combination of G rated clips from The Graham Norton Show and running through my to-do list (particularly the ones that have me working with specific constraints: may it be addressing notes from an editor or trying to mesh two ideas together to birth a unique one)

The Ambivert In Me

When I came across this post I couldn’t wait to share it.

 

Probably one of the major things that made me realise I was more of an introvert. 🙂 Well…accept that I was (And still am?).

 

Looking at the introvert’s things…I am #1, #2 (sort of — but I guess I’m more in a pensive train of thought when that happens), #3 (Sometimes — this is where my ambivert side comes in I think), #4 (definitely — but it depends who it is), and #6.

🙂

 

I’d say ambivert…but…then I couldn’t connect with any of the extroverts 7 things…until I re-read them recently.

 

I actually have a couple that jump out: #4 (I can do small talk like a pro — but I do that to steer into finding out what lights up the person I’m talking to), #6 (no issues starting conversations with strangers — it’s probably my small talk transitioning into deep talk ….training and experience? hehehehe)

 

Some definitions to note:

  • Introvert – A person who needs solitude to recharge. (Does not mean that person does not like to be around people)
  • Extrovert – A person who recharges by being around people. (Does not also mean that this person detests solitude.)

Maybe in time…Dictionary might update their own definitions.

Are you in the process of finally finding out where you sit? I’d love to get a chance to hear your process!
