Too much socializing

My hermit-like nature has recently entered a somewhat unfamiliar atmosphere, and that has given me a taste of excitement, and inspiration to explore beyond my quiet cul-de-sac.

I have put myself on an expressway that has exits to other expressways. I have signed up for a CED group, a book group, and I am already involved in two or three crochet groups. (Surprisingly none of them are strictly knitting groups, unless I consider our local, physical knitting group as one. But that does not have a lane on my expressway. That group has its own side street, in a quiet area of a busy metropolis.)

However, I have experienced speed pumps on my road. Some of them have made me to come to a halt completely. Those are the evil doubts in my abilities, my interest in socializing, and unsteady inspiration sprees. I blame my driving skills on these roads. I would like to drive on the slow lane, and watch everyone whizz by, while I am looking for an exit that would take me back to my own street.

It's Monday, and after staying up most of the night, my brain is cramping. I need to go to my cocoon and take a "nap".

I think it's great that you're out here on the expressway! You have so many talents and you shouldn't keep them hidden away from others. Don't doubt your skills so much. You are a fun, interesting, talented person. Let your hair down and join in the fun with these new groups. I bet you'll end up having a blast!!
