rushin' rushin' rushin' around

Everything is instantaneous these days. Push a button, and bing! mail sent. Push a different button and bing! kitty litter to your door in 2 days. Log on to your computer and bing!bing!bing! thirteen emails await your reply. Texting, cell phones, internet, gaming systems, vending machines- heck you can buy anything in a vending machine nowadays... all give people instant gratification. It has become so intertwined in our lives that we begin to be impatient. If someone doesn't respond to your email within a day, you are wondering if you said something to offend them, or if they are ever going to respond to you. It's amazing what technology has done to our society- and it is not all good. I am guilty of this too. Just the other day I was wondering why my contact at this wedding venue had not responded informing me of how to sign the contract for the venue. I was complaining that she was taking forever. Then I checked my sent box. It had only been TWO days! How impatient can one get? I had to remind myself that not everyone checks their email every 5 minutes like me.

Learn the art of patience. Apply discipline to your thoughts when they become anxious over the outcome of a goal. Impatience breeds anxiety, fear, discouragement and failure. Patience creates confidence, decisiveness, and a rational outlook, which eventually leads to success.

slacking much?

Seriously neglected blog, I apologize!!!

Lately I have been on a self-esteem low (very rare for me) and have been having more of an increase in indecisiveness and self-doubt. Today in the dressing room, I decided NO! I will stop being indecisive, stop worrying about what people think and just do what I think is best... because in the end that will make me the happiest. I'm talking mostly about Wedding planning. I love wedding planning! It's so much fun and I love expressing my creativity, making a collaboration of the hodge podge of ideas I find online... finding ways to tweak things so they fit us. I would definitely love event planning if I had a group of minions to carry out my desires and vision. I plan, you execute! Haha.

Anyways, I think we finally settled on a wedding venue. And although I have qualms with a few things, I definitely am looking forward to finding ways of making it work for us!

Back to crazy school...
