Happy Friday! Ah, the weekend is upon us again. I have to admit that I am usually a pretty stress-free person. I mean being a little neurotic is apart of my nature but I have my tactics for reducing daily stress - complaining seems to be my choice method. But I hate to sound like a whiner so to be able to complain at the rate I like I usually find positives in all the things that I might be complaining about, obviously this helps me end my rants on a high note and makes me feel better in a killing-two-birds-with-one-stone sort of a way. I also like to make lists and start tackling things, including really simple things on my list like "sweep" just so that I can start building a little stockpile of accomplishments. Sometimes right before I do a task I will go write it down really quickly just so I can have the satisfaction of checking it off a list. It's all about the mind tricks and I have learned to trick myself pretty well over the years. But sometimes, once in awhile, I will get this sort of stress of doom feeling that I can't figure out. List don't help, and complaining doesn't help because I don't know what to complain about. That is where I found myself yesterday. My method for that is usually frantically cleaning things in tight corners, taking on those things I usually avoid when I am feeling content, in a sort of repentant effort of sorts. So I am thinking this weekend I will be getting some cleaning done. to work out these mental knots. Is there anything you do when you have the random case of mystery stress?
Another thing I like to do is look at pretty things. I found these two interesting interiors here and here. That marble and plywood is so different. Nothing I'd ever put together myself, but it somehow works so lovely together here. And that little office is a tiny corner of a really striking house in Madrid. So many interesting elements and bold photographic art on the walls. Have a happy weekend ya'll.
