This week seemed like a marathon. Corporate events, industry events and…you know, work in general…had this home body living for Friday all week long. With those seemingly impossible deadlines nearly behind me, I say a very hearty “welcome” to the weekend!
::1:: I’ll admit it, I’m a fangirl of America’s Got Talent. I first watched the show in 2016 and became instantly hooked. I absolutely cannot wait for the live shows, but am also very happy the human fountains are behind us so I can hold down my dinner on Tuesday nights again.
::2:: In other amazing television news, this BBC America gem, Killing Eve, is a must watch. The acting is stellar, the storyline is fascinating and the characters are so compelling. It will be interesting to see how the season ends!
::3:: During a sale this Summer, I bought a Beauty Bioscience GloPRO. I’m not going to lie…I was TERRIFIED this microneedling tool was going to hurt, so it sat for a couple of weeks before I (drank a lot of wine first and then) used it. I swear, it does not hurt and I feel like I’ve seen results even using it only sparingly. I wouldn’t lie — this body has ZERO threshold for pain.
::4:: Speaking of pain…why, why, why are corporate events SO PAINFUL for marketing staff?! The industry in which I work is not known for its happy employees, but the amount of complaining at an incredibly successful event was at an all-time epic level this year. Perhaps if they knew complaining was bad for your health, they would start to smile every now and again.
::5:: In practicing what I preach, writing a list of things I’m grateful for and excited about every day has been helpful in rewiring my mindset in a more positive direction. You must be so sick of me saying it, but this Panda Planner has truly been life changing. What surprised me was how hard it was — especially at first — to come up with even one thing I was grateful and/or excited for. And my life is pretty darn good, but I was so focused on trying to mitigate the negative that I wasn’t seeing the positive right in front of me. Just like an instrument or language, a positive mindset requires practice.
