My uncle Skip taught me how to fold a simple origami bird when I was in about the 3rd grade. If you pull the tail on the bird, the wings flap. It’s really pretty cool. I think one of the reasons I was able to learn it at such an early age was because I’m an introvert and I like to know how things work.
Being an introvert isn’t inherently good or bad… it just IS. Learning to use our natural gifts and talents so that we can work WITH them instead of AGAINST them is a good thing.
