Half of me is filled with bursting words and half of me is painfully shy.

I crave solitude yet also crave people.

I want to pour life and love into everything

yet also nurture my self-care and go gently.

I want to live within the rush of primal, intuitive decision,

yet also wish to sit and contemplate.

This is the messiness of life –

that we all carry multitudes, so must sit with the shifts.

We are complicated creatures,

and ultimately, the balance comes from this understanding.

Be water.

Flowing, flexible and soft.

Subtly powerful and open.

Wild and serene.

Able to accept all changes,

yet still led by the pull of steady tides.

It is enough.

-Victoria Erickson

I recently took the 16 Personalities test and I found the results to be quite intriguing and surprising accurate.  Then again, according the results, I am just the type of personality to find such tests intriguing.

Hmmmmm.  Self-fulfilling prophecy?

In any event, the test is fun and informative and is worth 10-minutes of your time, if for no other reason than to cause a little self reflection.
