I never would have thought of myself as a resilient person...until now. Don't get me wrong, I still freak out and react more than I would like to at the hurdles that come my way. I now just kind of expect things to go awry - I know, I can hear my friends saying "stop with the negative thoughts!". I just think of it as managing my own expectations...
This month has been really frustrating. We were expecting our first shipment of Klipee's to arrive. We were super psyched at the thought of having our hands on the product so we could make the website live and start getting the sales shipped out to our clients before Christmas.
First, something happened with the packaging company. They were no longer able to do the job for us. Then there was an issue with the new company around the type of glue being used. It seemed like an endless series of hurdles being put in front of us - just to get the product.
So how do I deal with the stress? Ummmm, not very well, ha ha. Seriously though, I just pick up the phone and talk to my friends and advisors. I find talking it through gets it out of my head and helps me to just let things go.
I have now been assured that the Klipees are on the way via plane and boat and will be here by the end of November. While I am really happy about this, I am not counting my chickens before they hatch...
So welcome to my headspace - issue, freak, fix, repeat :)
Oh - and wine. There is always wine.
