Patience will be rewarded. Use this quiet time to build your strength and gather more information.
Just when you thought that it was safe to sit back, relax, and indulge in your moment of freedom, something pops up unexpectedly and you'll find it difficult to say no. Ride the waves, keep your chin up, and you might still manage to get some personal relaxation time.
If you're the only woman in your team, or you are the most timid or quiet person in your team, you'll notice that people are often challenging each other for power or authority or credibility. If you don't participate every now and then, you could get left behind. Don't be afraid to establish yourself by contributing or respectfully challenging. It's what team players do.
