One of Those Weeks
I had planned on blogging about something else today but just didn’t have the time or energy to compile it all. It was just one of those weeks. Nothing horrible happened. Actually a lot of great things took place. I had two amazing branding strategy sessions with new clients, I got coffee with some of my favorite people, and I hit some personal health goals!
So what went wrong? It was just a tough week as a freelance designer. I’m working through issues and how to avoid them in the future. I’m figuring out my business budget. We have a lot of upcoming trips and for the first time (since quitting my full-time day job) I’m managing my projects around those. Nothing horrible but overall I felt stressed as soon as I let my mind wander.
This weekend we’re going to Indianapolis to see our friends Megan + Josh. Not only do I love them so much – I admire them too. I’m excited to spend time in their lovely home, talking and visiting their favorite local restaurants.
How do you deal with those kind of weeks? Any fun plans this weekend?
A weekly email where I share things that made me stop and consider. Never sponsored, no affiliate links.
I totally know how that is. Sounds like you have a fun weekend lined up though, which is the perfect remedy! Happy Friday, Allie! :)
Some weeks just end up being ‘one of those weeks’ no matter what happens. I found this series on Inspired to Share very interesting.
Hope you have a relaxing weekend (full of lovely friends and sock buns)

I so hear you on this. If it makes you feel better, I had a similar week! I think it’s post-fashion week burnout on my end. I am going to a camping style wedding for my dear friends Angelo and Jessie and I couldn’t be more excited. A wedding with smores? Yes please!
Heading to The Wool Gathering in Yellow Springs this weekend. It’s kind of been one of those weeks for a few weeks for me. I have tendinitis in my shoulder, which has meant no crafting at all. Trying to get organized without over doing it. Have fun with friends!
I find when things get stressy it’s usually because I’m not setting (realistic) progress/process goals. This results in me thinking abstractly about my workload and basically derails mental stability as I start cooking up stress that’s not a truthful portrayal of reality. When this happens–and it seems to happen at the beginning of every semester–I find that I have to just take a timeout, think about where I want to be, recommit to long term goals that are accurately conceptualized, and work on something short term which I know I can complete.
I’ll have an intensive study session during this weekend.
