Oh my gosh, 2 posts in 1 week! I am achieving balance with at least my blog. I’m failing in the other areas.

I’m not going to lie, this isn’t going to be a happy post until towards the bottom so scroll to the picture if you need to (I won’t be offended, honest). We have a horrific personal situation going on right now that I can say not only came out of left field but has left me feeling I’ve fallen through Alice in Wonderland’s rabbit hole. The world is upside down. Needless to say, it’s left us reeling and I find myself isolating. I have a horrible head cold from all of the crying. We will see what happens. Work is still crazy. We have signed on quite a few new clients and continue to grow. It’s nice to watch our little company start to soar. However, I have 1 client situation that is just so difficult. No matter how many hours or ideas we come up with, we are not achieving the results we need to. I’m at a loss and I find myself unable to let it go. I take my work very personally and always want to make my clients 110% happy. To achieve anything less than that feels horrible but to achieve WAY less than that feels worse. I know we will get through it but between personal and work I feel like I have no outlet.

On top of this, I still am dealing with this broken foot. (See this post if you missed it). I went for a 2nd opinion and after having a not nice office experience, the dr. told me I am being over treated and to just put a shoe on and start walking. Talk about night & day treatments. So now I don’t know what to do.

So onto the point before I ramble on… I’ve been feeling pretty miserable for the last week and a half and haven’t been able to shake it. I’ve just felt like there is nothing to look forward to. Well 3 things have happened this week: I was named the Social Media Director at the Stepmom’s Toolbox, one of my friends made me an awesome bird house, and I got to talk & collaborate with an awesome woman business owner from Icing on Top. I am finally feeling the dread start to dissipate.

I am feeling like even though we still have a steep, uphill road before us – we WILL get through it. There will be light at the end of the tunnel and as long as Eric and I continue to support each other, anything is achievable. One of my mentor’s sayings for 2011 is Together We Achieve More! I’m seeing the truth in this statement.

Hope I can hang onto this feeling…


One thought on “Hope…

  1. Nic – you know that really tough client? It’s ok to let them go. More than likely, the time and energy you’ve expended has exceeded the value of having this client. It really is ok to fire your clients!

    Incredibly thrilled to have you on board as the Social Media Director at The Stepmom’s Toolbox. Your expertise in all things social media will be key to fulfilling our vision of being the number one resource center for stepmoms and stepfamilies!
