|Doing my little thing.|
I have subscribed for a while to Paul Jarvis´s newsletters. I find his voice to be reasonable, comforting, and encouraging in a world where so many are shouting about all the things one has to do. This piece particularly spoke to me, being an introvert and feeling rather awkward in public, both online and offline, much of the time. Or perhaps not awkward, exactly, but unwilling. I find myself often apologizing that my blogs (which I love to do) are small, that I should be more social media active, but to tell the truth, I have other things I´d rather do.
I have read two of his books "Everything I know" and "The Good Creative" and surprisingly, I seem not to have blogged either. Perhaps it´s because what he says isn´t revolutionary, it´s not summed up in easy catch-phrases, it´s not promising to give you the world. It´s just sensible; he makes me feel it´s ok to be just the way I am and that I can work with that.
