    I've so lost my mojo. Like many INFJs I've gone through the phase (basically my entire life) of trying to understand people. Just when you think you've got it down you realize there's one key player who is seemingly impossible to understand. Yourself. Reflecting on myself today I'm wondering...

    Summer has just begun in 2012... My mind races. I'm stuck in a train of thought that I will never get out of my childhood.
