I've been doing a lot of thinking.
I leave a week from today to go to Amsterdam. I'll be gone 7 days and I'm really looking forward to it. As I'm preparing to be gone there are a few things I want to make sure I have in order, but there's also a couple things I don't mind vacating.
So the other week I was talking about how I was wanting to invest in a new camera lens and also a desktop Mac computer.
While those things would be awesome, I decided to put them on hold.
This whole week I was nervous and anxious about my photoshoot that took place yesterday. Not only was this a big deal for me, meaning my client might hire me again for a similar shoot, but it was costing a lot of money like I mentioned in Thursday's post and I didn't want to mess it up.
Whether you're working with clients or not, everyone wants to feel valued and understood and in the client relationship, you want to focus on those two things.
So here's the story.
I think one of the best things I've done lately is to think about where I should put my focus.
Sounds easy enough, but the truth is, I found myself pouring my time and energy (and emotion) into Instagram when, at the end of the day, it always left me disappointed and slightly resentful.
I've been making a lot of rookie mistakes lately, but I'm hoping that as I share them it will help you avoid them if possible.
Any of you who have a full-time job, do you feel like you can never catch up? Or feel like you just can't seem to get ahead?
I'm feeling that way a little. I have so many things I need and want to do but I simply don't have enough time.
We had our little creative hangout last night.
Over appetizers and glasses of wine I felt myself relax and feel, honestly so much better.
This past week I feel like the stress has been mounting. I'm trying to get things lined up for this upcoming photoshoot I have for next week. I'm hiring models and renting equipment and it's one of my biggest projects to date. And with this gravity of the shoot comes a lot of stress and a bit of overwhelm.
