“I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person.”
(Keep quick-witted tricksters at a very FAR distance.)
Do you find yourself fascinated by people whose lives reflect yours?
Do you bother to slow down and pay attention to your own “self” – to know what makes you tick, tock – or knock?
Audrey Hepburn was an introvert. I happen to be one too. I just learned about her, and shared it with you.
Because that’s what I do – write impromptu.
Introverts are not be confused with those who cannot function socially. They/we are energized or invigorated by our solitude. After being with or around people, or experiences – they/we need to be alone to regroup.
Extroverts are the opposite. It makes for great experiences for both, and everyone when – together.
(Be aware: Loners are a different group!)
I’m going to guess about my lifelong fascination with her, because I’ve never been a movie buff. My interests lean more toward fashion, and ones total “look”.
When I was young (I don’t about you) there were no magazines around, so my mother took sewing lessons and made her own beautifully lined suits, my little velvet lace dresses, and of course – my uniquely fitted overalls! She was an outstanding seamstress.
It wasn’t uncommon from what I remember either. Here.
Without magazines back then, our best source(s) to fashion were catalogs.

Someone close to me back then, would sit beside me with a catalog, and use it like flashcards on me. Together we made a game called “Pick“. We did this repeatedly for a long time, or at least it felt like it.
It formed my opinion on fashion and pretty much at glance. (I’m very basic like my Korean mother.)
We’d simply start at a page, (I was younger and had no control) – one page was shown and out of everything, I was told to “PICK” my favorite piece of clothing. Then we’d move on to the next page – and so on.
My concentration and memory were constantly tested from a VERY young age repeatedly and throughout my life. To this day, I use everything I’ve been taught to solve problems successfully in business, relationships, and personal lives – always beginning in my own life first. It happens in stages.
Little did I realize how much or why I was fascinated by Ms. Hepburn, other than her extreme thin general appearance, and fashion. I can narrow it down to her form-fitting style and chosen color of black, plus her accessories.
I really like gloves, not only because my hands are always freezing, but they’re very elegant and look so sleek.
Here’s another quote explaining why she fascinates me. It’s a bit deeper:
“Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.”
Here’s one for the road,
‘The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.”
Love does NOT come from a man. You certainly do not need one to find who you truly are.
Love pours out of your heart, and GIVES!
It works both ways. In fact, if both human beings in a relationship were soberly confident of themselves and steadfast within, then – together – they could love and move onward in life encouraging each other. Relationships take much, much more than that to WORK out.
So many individuals need to WORK on themselves – first!
If you did not get parenting, then you cannot find what you need in a school or a textbook.
You know what that means?
It spells T-R-O-U-B-L-E… in your own personal life. Two troubled people don’t make a healed one, and one can’t change another.
I wouldn’t give up my life for anything, yet (not but)… some advice would have helped from someone. Perhaps a compliment or encouragement too. Might be hard to believe, but it’s true. Then again? It might not be for you.
I heard what appeared to be many fleeting compliments years later, but it all fell flat – leaving me wondering,
“Why were they all so silent? Would it have changed my entire life, had I heard any of this – back then? Why bother wondering, because it’s too late!
Do NOT dwell on things that are NOT REAL!
©IM Infusion Musings a casual peer level life coach. My style is to guide and write to you impromptu, personally, and help you smile. I’ve been known for years to make the tough stuff in life really clear, lift burdens, and help make life appear more simple – or less complex – to understand. Understanding brings a sense peace.
I grew up living my life – focused on listening intently to (communicating with) my Korean mother – translating and explaining the minutia of seemingly everything. Sometimes her words were the wrong ones – totally, and I knew what she meant – exactly. I was the only one in the family who knew what she meant with precision.
Writing like this is more homey or cozy to me. It allows me time to set my mind aside, and share it in this world.
Errors and all – you find one, two, three – feel free to point it out!
Mainly my mother, and father via my Creator… using nature vs nurture formed my unique mind. Being born in petri dish of incredible, unimaginable, diversity helps tremendously with inherently understanding and sensing, interwoven intricacies in communications, and in the most difficult relationships. (Including the one with your “self”.)
My Korean mother reared me as child to think globally and about others first, founded upon a culture of respect. It’s definitely flawed for women around the world. It’s also a common theme that’s out of balance.
