Poppy wants to live in a world where everyone's story matters, regardless of their income or way of life.

As a photographer, she's won ribbons at the county fair. As a spiritual seeker and writer, she's been featured in Jen Louden's The Life Organizer and once published an article at allthingsgirl.net.

When she's not writing or photographing her story, she can be found at her day job as a technology consultant, or at home snuggling her cats, or in the park, taking a walk with her husband.

Breathing into Extroversion Hangovers

What worked?I did a bit of finding common ground about a difficult conversation that needed to happen. And it worked - we agreed that no-one was asking for the impossible and the stuff in writing just needed to be clarified.

Stocking up on tasty beverages worked! I always had a cup of tea handy if I wanted one, and the option to stop at the cafe for something else if I didn't.

Leaving gifts for Future-Me. Setting up the air filter in the room I wanted to be in later so that by the time I got there, I would have clean air. This helped the seasonal allergies enormously.

Deciding that fresh cut veggies are good enough for dinner, not just a snack.

Next time I might… When I'm not going to be home in time to set up the air filter, I could call and ask the Mister if he would set it up for me. Then I can come home to comfort!

Mysterious and Challenging Boston - my college town.

Project management and negotiation.

Overdoing something, and ending the week with an extroversion hangover.

Sparkly Delights I got an awesome email!! I didn't have anyone to share the sparkle with, but I got an awesome email with a thank you note in it. It felt so good to receive!

Breathing. Breathing is good.

Magical Powers Last week, I asked for a surprise power... and I'm still guessing what it was. No idea.

Next week, I'd like a safety salve that smells like roses and reminds me that I don't have to Please All The Peoples.

A weekly revue (with spangles!), adopted from Havi's Friday Chickens at Fluent Self.
