I decided to write a positive post - a “the glass is half full of wine” post.
Last week was the huge annual event for my work. I always thought that I would live to go into the event planning field so I was thrilled when I was informed that I was going to have a large role in coordinating this event. After the initial small details I started to realize the complexity of the event. The timing. The speakers. The sponsors. The attendees. The food. The wine! And I suddenly found myself thinking that event planning is not the field for me. As the stress piled up I began to second guess my life plan.
Looking back now - just 5 days after the end of the event - I couldn’t be more proud and happy of all the hard work. Hearing from others that it was one of the best conferences, the dinner was one to beat and how much they have seen me grow, totally validates my hard work and reminds me what makes the stress all worth it. I wouldn’t exactly say that I’m ready for next year but I am excited to top myself with our 2013 conference.
Having a rough day. So I made cookies. I wish Sean was still here so I had a distraction from everything.
I have the day off and a list of a trillion things I wanted to do - I’ve checked off two. I guess that’s better than none. I’m anxious to start packing but know I still have almost two months here. And there’s an Intervention marathon on.
Oh. Yeah and my stress level is hitting the ceiling and I think this conference is driving me to drink. Well drink more than I did before. I am looking forward to Tuesday, January 24 at 6:00 p.m.
