Another designer and I were talking about what makes some people so calm and collected and others stressed and frantic, even when presented with the same daily schedule.  What brought this up was after going up and down the stairs in our office for the 4th time in a row hauling samples back and forth, I felt so "AAAHHH"! Not very effortless or collected. I seem to always feel like I am frantic buzzing around from one place to the next.

So, my thought is, the people I see where it seems like nothing fazes them and they are graceful and smooth throughout the day, is it all an act or is there a relaxed gene I am missing?? This post is also coming off of a crazy busy day where I was back and forth and all over and I left the office in an overall disheveled state.

Why can't I be look more like these ladies?? Cool as a cucumber!

It's all smoke and mirrors:). I am sure they get frazzled too!

It is all a big lie, I promise you! They are just good at "acting" like they are cool as cucumbers!! That's what we have to learn to do, too!!!!

Have a great weekend!

hmmmm, interesting topic. I feel the same all of the time. I'm starting to think it's just a mind thing. I need to remind myself that there is nothing that should have me so worked up. And also, that no two people are alike and neither are their situations... You have a lot going on right now. Being a mom, wife, building a home, and work. Just take it one day at a time and know that you are doing the best that you can at whatever you're doing at the moment! and like Sherry said, I'm sure they get frazzled too;)

Oh I hope it's not a gene thing, that means I don't stand a chance. I would love to figure it all out for myself! I think it's the old adage of putting too much on your plate. I definitely do that but the past couple of weeks have been reevaluating so I'm not a crazy person anymore. Hope you find some time to relax soon!
