Starting to stress out about an exhibit I am putting together at the community center starting March 1. I've been "planning" this for months but still haven't really finalized a lot of things and now I have to start promoting it. On top of that I still haven't raised all the money I need for the event. Fortunately, the cost is pretty small. My big problem is I hate to burden others when I come up with these crazy ideas and tend to try to do too much myself and I particularly hate asking for money. I then worry that people think I am being selfish and want all the credit when, in fact, I just don't want to bother people. Something I REALLY need to work on.
I also just realized that next Saturday I agreed to host two events for Science Olympiad (I had it on my calendar as March 16!!) so that's just one more thing to stress about.
When I get stressed I tend to let my guard down about snacking and start overeating so I will have to be very mindful about that the next few weeks. Being aware is the first step in dealing with these challenges so I hope writing about it will help avoid a major slip up.
