Simmer Down

September 12, 2013

Shit needs to just mellow the fuck down!!! I feel like I say this more often, especially as I age, but for crying out loud.. I have a trillion things to do on a daily basis with only 24 hours in a day and I NEVER can finish a to do list…. I just keep adding shit to the list. Does this make me a giant looser, or is this normal?

Wanna know what else? I may or may not be moving and all the sudden I am having to spend every waking second i am not working, to freak out about where the hell my family of 1 big girl, 2 fur babies, a Duck, and a lunatic (thats me) going to live?

!! OH LAWD !!


  1. This feeling happens all the time in the design world!

    Its so easy to take on more and more work and projects and then think “I dont have time, I dont have enough hours, I don’t have enough space, I don’t have enough fabric! Ahhh!!” What makes a huge difference is focusing on what you do have instead of what you don’t have. You have awesome opportunities. You have the ability to handle things. You have the ability to make a damn list to get all that shit done one thing at a time! Focus on the now and not what could be. And read Brene Brown’s books- she is a simmer down PRO!

  2. I think everybody feels this all the time. We all have to do lists that never seem to end, I know with starting my MBA, working a full-time job, doing consulting and just finishing a renovation of the house we moved into a month ago, I’ve been on the verge of a caffeine overdose for weeks… I don’t let it stress me out though because I know the more I stress and think about how much I have to do- the less I actually get done.
