    Hey everyone! I'm so excited to be apart of this community. It feels like a safe space, unlike a majority of the internet. Haha. I am an introverted HSP. I am married, and we have 2 kitties. I love gardening, baking, hiking, camping, frisbee golf, and reading.

    I'm excited to learn more about everyones experiences.

    Chat soon,

    Tara

    Hello Tara,

    Welcome to Kindlywired:) I'm an introverted HSP as well. I think I might be an extroverted introvert. I like to socialize, but often get tired after. I have two dogs (Milo & Lola), and they are amazing. I love to read. Lately, I've been reading "As a Man Thinketh".

    I hope you have a great time here.

      Thanks! I'm happy to be here. That's awesome. I'll have to check that out. I've really been into re reading the alchemist lately.

      Oh, I love that book. It’s one of the reasons I started Kindlywired :) It’s a great story, and the way Paulo Coehlo narrates is amazing. I hope you enjoy re reading it. It’s one of my favorites.

    Hi Tara, excited to get to know you! I have recently gotten into gardening myself and I absolutely love it. I'm also a bit of a crazy plant lady when it comes to indoor plants. I think they just help to bring a calming energy to your space. I've never frisbee golf but have played both frisbee and golf separately -- how long have you been playing for?

      Larissa Burgess that's cool! What kind of plants do you have? I've tried to grow orchids several different times, and haven't had much luck. Lol. They are so beautiful and fragile. Off and on for about 5 years. It's a lot of fun! I think it's also called disc golf in some countries.

      Tara I have a lot of different kinds. Some of my favorites are fiddle leaf fig, monstera, pothos, and snake plant. This year, I also planted a vegetable garden in my backyard and definitely enjoyed tasting fresh vegetables all summer long. I've never tried orchids, but I've heard they are pretty finicky, so I don't think you are then only one with that experience. I've definitely heard of disc golf, I haven't seen a place to play it, but it sounds like a lot of fun.

      Wow thats awesome! Our strawberries and tomatoes are doing really good this year. Its so satisfying growing your own food! We had planted lupins too, but they don't seem to want to flower. :( Yes, there are a few spots around us so we are lucky.

    Hey there Tara! It's very nice to meet you! I'm an empath who is mostly introverted, but can be extroverted around people I love although I don't talk much. As long as people around me are happy, I am happy. I got married this June, and have two cats! I love creative work (painting, digital, traditional), but been having art blocks. Just started getting into plants myself. I love hiking, not much hiking trails where I live, but when I visit Colorado I hike as much as I can!

    Me and my husband have thought of maybe moving to Canada one day! We love, "8 out of 10 cats" show and, "Taskmaster", have you seen them? We also love poutine!

    Have an awesome day!

      Estefani You too! Yes, I find it pretty exhausting being around people who talk too much. lol. I definitely need my time alone to recharge. Oh congrats!! Thats so exciting. How did the wedding go with the whole coronavirus? Hope it was a wonderful day to remember. Awww. I love cats. I would have 10 if I could, but my husband said no. :P

      Colorado looks amazing!! I would also love to visit Washington & Oregon. I've heard there are so many beautiful spots, and lots of places to camp! Where do you live now?
      Yes! You should check it out. The only thing I'd suggest is living somewhere in Southern Canada. Southern BC is gorgeous, and they have great outdoor activities. Where I am, the winters get to -40 C. Its really hard to deal with living in a freezer for 6 months of the year.
      No I haven't watch those yet. I'll add them to my list. :) Haha I can't even remember the last time I had poutine. :P I wonder how that became a Canadian thing? Haha.

      Well I have to correct myself, it was on beginning of March. It was before when everything was getting quarantine so it went well! It wasn't a big glamorous wedding, just had a small one on my husbands parent's yard. It felt very homey which is what I was going for. Then after that we went to our honeymoon in Fairbanks, Alaska which was very lovely and kinda got to see the northern lights! Colorado is so far my favorite place in the world, if I can't move to Colorado I'm shooting for Canada lol. I currently live in Texas. It's so hot over here which is one of the reasons I want to move out, but kinda hard to see the future at the moment.

      Southern Canada huh, I will keep that in mind! Definitely for the outdoor activities! We love nature more than city environment. Woah that's really cold, my husband may like that because he loves the cold lol.
      I have to apologize they are actually Britain shows, but they are still great! In Dallas there is a place called Maple Leaf Diner and they serve Canadian staple foods there. It's a lot for me so I usually am good with the poutine.

      Aaron T Thoma Hello Aaron, I'm an INFJ as well. I was very sensitive to criticism, and still working on it. I have learned to isolate criticism into two categories - helpful and not helpful. For the ones that are helpful, I let the emotions flow through me, and then ponder on them. For the ones are not helpful (from people who are just being rude, or seeing one side of the story), I ignore. I say - "I know myself well than others, and I trust myself more". I know, I am not perfect, and I know my weaknesses more than others."
