Monday Musings…

“Maybe your weird is my normal.
Who’s to say?”

There are those who think I am weird and that’s okay with me. I sort of agree with them. My lifestyle isn’t one that would make many folks happy. For the most part, I like to be alone in my home, just me and the catkids. I also like it quiet. I rarely have the radio on or the TV.

I am definitely a quiet introvert. I don’t socialize much and when I do I prefer small gatherings. I can be quite talkative when with friends or once I get to know someone but with those I don’t know I tend to keep in the background.

People ask me if I get bored being retired and on my own most of the time. The answer is, no. My favorite things to do are those things that one does by themselves like reading, writing, doing puzzles, crocheting and needlework. Even before retirement those were my chosen past-times and I never had enough time for them. Now I do.

I used to be a bit embarrassed that I wasn’t more outgoing and active because people were always trying to get me out more and to be more social thinking that I was lonely or depressed. I wasn’t then and I am not now. I am happy with my life.

So, maybe I am weird. I don’t care, others can think what they want. Of course, it is entirely possible that they are the ones who are weird. Really, who’s to say?

  1. You actually sound like a peaceful, happy, well-rounded person. Being content in one’s own company is a gift, and then some. I too love to be quiet, reading, lolling enjoying the peace.
    If this is weird, I’ll take it.
    Lovely musing on any day. πŸ™‚

    1. I am happy and getting rounder every week.😼 We seem to be a lot alike. Bet we would get along great. We could have coffee every morning!

    1. When I was young I made myself miserable trying to be like everyone else. What a waste of youth. It’s much better just being me.😺

  2. It takes all kinds of people to make the world go around. We all have our own weirdness and that’s ok. Who wants to be like everyone else anyhow? Not me! πŸ˜‰

  3. I can relate to this one. Sometimes people ask what I do with all my time as if I should be solving world peace. I quite content with a lot of solitary time myself. A little bit of socializing goes a long way. I think of people as a condiment. Just a dab to make life interesting. Too much and you can’t taste life.

  4. Awww, on that cute kitty.

    I know I’m weird and that’s in a normal way. I’m happy about it.
