This is the official launch of my new Blog, Introvertanista. I myself am, though wrapped in some more outgoing tendencies, an introvert. Yet somehow, I find myself working in a high-profile company that essentially requires you to be overly social, to have a lite knowledge of current trends, and to constantly roll with the punches.
The struggle is real – but manageable.
For me, such things are a huge adjustment, and require a level of “faking it” so no one wonders about the “quiet girl”, or labels me as stuck up because I am not necessarily always “on”. I have managed to do this and find a peaceful balance in my profession.
Being thrown into the world of apparel and trends of all types? I didn’t mind at all 🙂
I choose as my mascot of courage, the lion. More specifically, those majestic stone lions that sit outside of libraries or important buildings. I hope to take their noble energy into my everyday struggle and find a way out of it, so that what I fake now can become real.
The guys pictured though? They are the “party” library lions.
