Oh Heck!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Well, sometimes life has a way of sneaking up on you. Today was one of those days.

I own my own business, a social media consulting company, and business has been very, very good. I LOVE what I do and I have met some amazing people! It's a new industry, one that is often seen as "fake" or "subpar", but I couldn't disagree more! I can't count the number of times someone has said to me, "Soooo, you get paid to play around on Facebook all day?" Ha! Don't I wish! Anywho, getting on with my day....

I lost a major client today. They just don't have the funding to keep going. I am shocked. And.... sad. Maybe if I worked a little harder on this contract, maybe if I had spent a little more time... I know that it isn't my fault. The client even said so in the meeting, and indicated that she would re-sign as soon as business picked back up. Still, I can't shake this feeling of guilt, or maybe disappointment. I feel like I failed them as a marketer.

I'm a hardcore emotional eater. This is my first BIG challenge since beginning my new lifestyle and by God it's hard! I want the pie sitting in my fridge right now sooooo badly! I know that I am craving it because I am feeling down, but sheesh! You'd think that it was laced with an illicit substance (it isn't!!!) *Sigh* I think I'll take a hot shower, slip into some comfy pajamas and read.

    I know that was disappointing for you. Hopefully the shower and a good book will take your mind off the pie.

    Keep your chin up!

    I'm sorry to hear about your disappointment. You should be proud that you didn't eat the pie without thinking first. Even if you ate some after your hot shower and warm jammies, you thought before you dove into the pie. Making long-lasting lifestyle changes doesn't usually happen overnight.

    Hope things get better soon. emoticon
