Asserting My Contemplative Self

I am too yin. I know this about myself. I need to assert myself more and have more courage in new situations. But I also need to assert my contemplative self in the world, not be buffeted by the circumstances I find myself in. Maybe the world doesn’t need to know explicitly that the guy in the shoe store in the mall is a tai chi sifu and 21st century contemplative, but I should know it, and carry myself as such, and not let the world compromise who I am.
