At some point, last night, I just could not bear to be tied down to my desk anymore, and feel gloomy about the incessant rain, business, life. I just shut down my computer and dragged Estera my design project manager and Ania, Interieurs marketing director to a cocktail party in Soho at Ducduc, my favorite children furniture maker. We were welcomed by Ronda Carman of the famous "All the Best" blog and marketing venue, who was the hostess of the evening cocktail party.
Sometimes we have to push ourselves to go out and mingle with the world. I know I feel at times that I have to carry all the stress, struggle and pressure on my shoulders and just keep going and going without breathing any fresh air. I call it being in a rut... Do you feel that way sometimes? My new medicine, instead of feeling sorry for myself, I kick myself and go out to mingle with others.
Two nights ago, I had the most wonderful dinner with a designer/client and after a three hours dinner, I feel that we have struck a real friendship. I met his wife and she and I could have spent the night talking about AIDS research and her work with AIDS devastated nations. Then last night, at the cocktail party, I bumped into a client and our conversation cheered me up. I will say that I do have a sense of humor, and both she and I laughed our stress and frustrations away... a couple of cocktails helped us along.
So thank you Ronda and the Traditionalist/ DucDuc team...
