Being a natural anxious person, I get easily overwhelmed when there is too much going on. That means the good and the bad. When I have a lot to look forward to, I get anxiety about everything exciting that's approaching. And if everything's going terribly? Just count me out. I'll be taking stress naps and Netflix binges until it all goes away. I swear, I wasn't made to be a successful human. Or even a functional human.
Right now, I've got the too much good going on. The horizon is peppered with awesome events. My parents are flying out in the beginning of June. This has been a long-time coming and I rarely see my parents (maybe once a year), so it's going to be exciting to show them around the city. We're also going wedding dress shopping while my Mom is here! Ben and I are busy planning the top 3 places we have to take them to eat (impossible in PDX) and the top 3 fun outdoorsy events to do (also impossible in Oregon).
Then in July, we're taking our engagement photos with our beautiful, lovely, ultra-talented photographers. They're from Seattle and will be down in Portland for another wedding, so they're cramming us in to their tight schedule (hallelujah!). I'm kind of freaking out about it. I'll need some help, as we get closer, picking an outfit! And a hairstyle! And deciding how to do my make-up. And a nail color. Ack.
And add to all the rest of that, planning a wedding and coordinating different details like bridesmaid dresses, and flowers, and learning calligraphy, and buying plane tickets, and helping other people buy plane tickets, and registering for gifts, and getting my friend officially licensed to marry us, and...
Let me breathe for a second and remember that I've got 10 months on the last paragraph there and can chill out for at least today.
Are you the anxious type? Anxious about only bad or the whole spectrum of anxiety-inducing events? How do you cope when everything's awesome and yet you're still overwhelmed?
