Building My Village

Where are my introverted pals? Get ready to join me on an exciting adventure as I spill the beans about my mission to create a village of my own. Yep, this introvert is about to step out of her cozy shell and make some awesome friends! So fasten your seatbelts. We’re in for a ride full of trial and error, laughter, and coffee talks. Let’s go!

Stepping Out of My Cozy Cave

Okay, confession time: staying home with my daughter Julia and our adorable furballs is seriously my jam. There’s nothing quite like snuggling up with my favourite little humans (yes, I include the dogs in that category) and enjoying some quality time together. But, you know what? I had a moment of realization that shook me to the core. I was missing out on all the awesomeness that comes with having real-life connections and friends to talk some serious sh*t with (and maybe sip a coffee or two).

Don’t get me wrong. I love my cozy, pretty cave. It’s my sanctuary, my safe haven. But deep down, I know there is a whole world out there waiting to be explored. A world where friendships are formed over coffee and laughter and where conversations are easy and fun. It was time to step out of my shell and dip my toes into the waters of social interaction.

Guess what? I decided to take a leap of faith! I wanted to build my own village, and I was ready to deal with rejection if needed. Armed with courage and a genuine desire to connect, I took the plunge and reached out to fellow humans. I was on the lookout for like-minded souls who appreciate the same stuff I do and love chatting about all the things (because, let’s be real, life can be messy, and it’s so much better when we can share our messes with someone who totally gets it).

I was feeling a mix of excitement and nerves – like a bunch of butterflies throwing a party in my stomach – when I finally hit that “send” button to post my message in my community group, literally asking to make friends. Will anyone respond? Will they think I’m weird? Those thoughts were racing, but you know what? I wasn’t going to let that stop me. I craved conversations and real-life interactions, and I was ready to dive in headfirst!

Wow, I couldn’t believe it when the responses started rolling in! The idea of meeting new people, making connections, and getting to know each other felt so scary and refreshing. Now I had no way out of it, and that meant stepping out of my comfy introvert bubble, but the potential rewards were totally worth it!

So, here I am, proudly rocking my introvert badge, and I’ve got my sights set on building my very own village. I’m all in, ready to take on the challenges and embrace the joys that come with making real-life connections. I can’t wait to sit down for coffee chats with friends who appreciate the beauty of talking some serious sh*t and love all the quirks and traits that make us who we are. Let the adventure begin!

As the responses started pouring in, a sense of anticipation and excitement filled the air. The prospect of meeting new people, forming connections, and getting to know each other felt like a breath of fresh air. Sure, it meant stepping out of my cozy cave, but the potential rewards were worth every moment of discomfort.

I was ready to embrace the challenges and joys that come with building real-life connections. Life is way too short to stay stuck in our cozy caves.

Who is This Woman?

As the day of the gathering drew near, I couldn’t help but be in awe at the boldness of the woman I was becoming. I mean, seriously, who would’ve thought this introvert would be reaching out to people and asking them to be friends? And not only that but also host a meetup!

It’s been a journey of growth and it feels absolutely incredible. I guess there is no more hiding for this lady.

Let me tell you, the rewards of this experience were worth every ounce of discomfort. Opening up my cozy cave to new acquaintances led to meeting some pretty awesome women, moments of laughter, and connection.

The next steps on this journey? Hosting more coffee dates in my house, engaging in the community and braving the pickleball world. Yes, you heard me right! I want to learn something new while meeting people with the same interests. It’s like having your cake and eating it too, but without the calories!

I am currently working on arranging some introductory pickleball classes. It turns out that the magical world beyond my introverted nature is filled with endless possibilities.

Final Thoughts

My village-building journey as an introvert has just started, and I’m loving the person I’m becoming in the process. I’ve learned that people crave connection, and they’re more than happy to grab a coffee with me. The secret sauce? A good sense of humour and not taking myself too seriously.

Watch out, my village is expanding!
