Will somebody P.L.E.A.S.E punch me in the face?

Now, punch me again.

I am trying to avoid stress, right? Or at least manage it!

(deep breath in through the nose, out through the mouth..ahhh)

And I go and do THIS

.

I know what you’re thinking : what did you do now,Cate ?

 

OK. Here it is …

About 3 weeks ago, I got inspired …like, really inspired !

To do what?

To change my whole website.

On my own. Like I know what I’m doing..

.

Key information :

I have no programmer training. None.

I don’t know how to build a website.

I get frustrated easily with anything remotely ‘techie’.

.

I am sketchy at best.

. 

BUT… I felt a bit like Superman, you know.

(high on excitement from my “brilliant” idea)

But I don’t know how to fly and I forgot that little tidbit of info.

 (my momentary lapse in judgement is impressive, no?)

What a jackass I am.

(it gets better, I promise)

Want to hear the best part?

Right after I “activated” my new site and realized I had to re-do almost everything …

I broke into a sweat

started laughing (or crying, I’m not even sure which)

and felt panic start to set in…

.

… and then took a deep breath and decided I had to dig myself out of this mess.

life gets messy all on it’s own, it doesn’t need help from me )

.

And in that moment I had a choice : lose my $%#$ or move forward.

(And let me just say I teetered on the "losing my $%#$" part for a few minutes)

Then I emailed my amazing programmers (Waylay) this email :

Now, here is the “better”.

I watched tutorial after tutorial and figured some of it out.

I started having fun. I learned so much.

AND, I actually like the site.

It’s clean and elegant and simple.

It feels more me.

Here is the moral of the story :

We all have preconceived ideas of who we are and …

Sometimes those ideas are narrow.

Sometimes those ideas are wrong.

We label ourselves, even if we don’t do it aloud we certainly have an inner dialogue about it.

It’s a wonderful thing to be able to see ourselves through fresh eyes every once in a while.

I have decided to practice doing this and I think you should too.
