I want to handle stress better.
This week is a challenge. I’m responsible for hosting a 2-day event with people from all over the globe. In my previous job I helped run events all the time, but this is the first one I’ve been in charge of in a few years. I have A LOT to do and don’t necessarily handle the stress of it very well. While I should be using this week to only focus on my work responsibilities, I typically end up focusing on everything I need to do in my life. This approach turns me in to a venom-spitting witch as I continue to put more pressure on my self than is necessary. I’m trying to keep the evil away this week by taking frequent deep breaths and really focusing on what is necessary rather than what is ideal. Perfectionism is going to have to go out the window for the next few days. This weekend I’ll do a non-statistical survey of the people in my life to see if it worked.
I want to take pictures like this.
I blame having no natural light in my apartment as to the reason my photos are sub-par. Does telling myself that make me feel better? Nope. The truth is I need to take time to work on food styling and testing different indoor lighting methods. I’m always in such a rush to either eat the food I just made or take care of the other things in my life I never slow down to take the time to practice. It’s something I want to really focus on over the next few months and hopefully I’ll make the time to do so. In the meantime, I’m just going to be jealous whenever I see such a beautiful food photo and feel sorry for myself.
I want to watch the Season Finale of Downton Abbey.
I’ve been so busy the past few weeks I haven’t been able to have closure on my favorite TV show and I don’t know when I’ll be able to. I’ll probably get to the final episode in April or May so keep your thoughts on Season 2 to yourself please.
