Synchronicity

You know how sometimes, when you're feeling blue or out of sorts, you stumble upon something - a quote, a picture - just when you really need it? And before you know it, you're feeling a little better, more connected to yourself, to others? This happened to me recently with a batch of Marzi Wilson's Introvert Doodles.

I hope the following Doodles give you strength and make you smile, the way they do for me. (Oh, and the last one makes me think of all of you out there in the blogosphere!)


BRAVERY


APOLOGETIC



REAL FRIENDS


(I've mentioned Introvert Doodles - the website! the book! - on this blog before and you all already know I don't receive any compensation. I'm just a fan!)

*****

Feeling brave today? Are you living your life unapologetically? Do you consider online friends "real" friends? I know I do!

  1. I love these! Every so often I want to walk away from all social media, but I'd miss my online friends too much.

    1. I hear that! I think the trick is to filter out the "stuff" and focus on the friends and on all the things that we can learn online, that can make us laugh, etc.

  2. Great comics! Heh, I don't think I've had anyone accuse my blogging buddies of not being real friends, but darn right will I defend them. :)

  4. These are great! Of course online friends are real friends! People in real life don't know ANYTHING about my writing, which is a big part of my life. But I share it with my blogger buddies.

  5. I like the one about living unapologetically. It gets tiresome trying to please others so when we reach a certain age, it's a good thing to start pleasing ourselves instead...and no apologies!

    1. I so wish I was at that age, Patricia! I'm getting there, but I'm not quite there yet. Sigh.

  6. LOL! Yes to that last one. I'm late getting out to see everyone this month, but I'm glad I stumbled in for this post. LOVE the inspiration.

  7. I love Introvert Doodles! I really need to work on #2. And yes, on-line friends are real friends - sometimes "real-er" than in-person friends.

    1. I found myself apologizing a lot, even for things I didn't really have any business apologizing for - it was sort of my default, in a way. Now, I try to make sure it's really something I need to apologize for before I do. :)

  8. Online friends are DEFINITELY real friends. I finally get to meet one of my online friends next month, and I'm SO excited. I have no doubt we'll connect as well in person. And you? I'd meet you in a heartbeat.

  9. These are fantastic! I do sometimes apologize too much. It's my Canadian blood. ;) And yes, online friends are real friends!

    1. Somewhere along the line, I started to realize apologizing was becoming almost automatic, like my default. Not any more! :)
