(yes, I am still drinking wine…)

Alright, so I know I said I was going to take time off from my little blog but I have something on my mind that I thought I should share and hopefully gain some advice from you all. It’s a very simple yet oh so complicated topic. I.stress.easily. very easily. I don’t know why it happens this way but I have always been prone to stress. Even in high school— whether it was a fight with friends or a massive test, I would stress out. In college, it was the same thing. If I had more than two tests in a week, hello stress! For the most part, i would like to think I manage my stress pretty well. I make lists (thank you, mom) and organize things in order of priority. I make my life at least appear to be  simplistic and not-so-stressful. I don’t like to make other people around me feel stressed when I am freaking out internally because that is just not how I work. In my opinion, just because I am stressing out about something doesn’t necessarily mean that someone else is feeling the same way. Being stressed is never fun so bringing someone into that boat when it can be avoided, I say heck yes.

Lately, at work I have been gaining a lot of responsibility. Don’t get me wrong— this.is.fantastic. I have been wanting to take on more for awhile now and all i can think at this very moment is “be careful what you wish for” because it could not be more true. Without going into the entire situation for privacy and my own well-being, you just need to know that I am going to be swamped at work the next few weeks. Many people have asked if I am nervous. The honest answer, yes… how could I not be?! This is my first job in the “real world” and I am still learning (and will continue to for awhile) so yes, it is scary. However, I am so ready to take on the challenge. I feel prepared, to an extent, and I know I am capable. I am more worried about the unknown. You know what I am talking about right? I am organized so I have all my ducks in a row but what about the duck I don’t account for?! That duck scares the crap out me. Who knows when or where its coming from but have no fear, it will come. Something unexpected is expected. And THAT is what I need your help with. Does anyone have advice or some de-stressing routines or steps they like to take? I have the “drinking excessive amounts of wine” covered so that’s a non-issue. What else do you have?!

Here’s to another day! Have a good one!
