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 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.
I have decided to practice doing this and I think you should too.
Have you ever felt like Superman? Redefined yourself?.
