Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Where were you on 9/11/01?

Where were you on 9/11/01? I realize that some of you weren’t born or lived in another country, but I felt compelled to summarize the events that happened that day to tell you the important lessons that I learned.

Highly Sensitive People/Introverts: Where do you find your inspiration?

It’s important that highly sensitive people and introverts exercise their natural resource of creativity in order to feel fulfilled. The more creativity you express, the more happiness you will feel, which will enhance your self-esteem.

I find my inspiration from everywhere! Like most highly sensitive people, I’m aware of everything around me. I carefully listen to what other people say, read lots of articles and books, and am a constant observer of human nature. I never know where my inspiration may come from, but I’m always open to it.
