Gotta get through this

I have two events this week which causes me much stress. I lay awake at night running through all the details in my head and I wake up in the middle of the night from nightmares.
I have always been told that if something can go wrong at an event, it will. And I have experienced all types of wrong - the bakery being 2 hours delayed on the cake, the speaker cancelling the night before, etc. I hate the unknown. I'm a planner, thus why I'm an event coordinator. But I hate the unexpected and that is what keeps me up at night.
I just can't wait for this week to be over. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do. ButI'm ready for Saturday at 4p.m. when it is all over with. I will go home, put on sweats, drink a glass of pinot and unwind. It cannot come soon enough!

Your a coordinator? Wow, I give you kudos! I think I would enjoy the planning but not the unexpected and that just comes with the job...I hope it all goes well and the nightmares stop! Is it a wedding your planning?

When I can't sleep at night because I have too much running through my head, I keep a pen and notepad on the bedside table. Anytime something pops into my head, I write it down.

Inevitably, as I lay back down, something else pops up, I write it down, repeat. Eventually, I can lay down without something popping up and go to sleep.

Maybe that would help? :) Best wishes for a smooth event!

Brett Alexandra said...

Aw, hope all goes well with that! I bet that is stressful. I wanted to be an event planner my last year of college then decided it wasn't for me. ONLY because I get stressed out too easily. It sounds like so much fun, though. good luck! I'll say a little prayer for yoooou.

Jessica said...

Praying for you! Just remember that God will take care of those unexpected moments that can't be planned for :-) Try to let go, and let God take care of it, because he always will!

Mocha Dad said...

Heather said...

I used to be an event coordinator. and I HATED the unkown! Like when the linen people were THREE HOURS late and everytime I called I got the DECLINE ....cool! lol. I still don't like the unkown in my everyday life. I don't do good with it. Sorry you're stressed girl! Sending good vibes your way!
