Yay Friday! + A little update

Hey guys! How's your August going so far? I can't believe how time is going by so fast lately. We came back from our much needed holiday on the 8th, and although we've only been working three days this week, we're quite happy to welcome the end of Friday!

Dordogne was so beautiful, sunny and hot (most of the time!), and I have so many photos I'd like to share with you! I think I'll have to separate them in two or three posts. Just thought I'd warn you now! I haven't had the time to sort through them yet though, but I know we took loads and I think that'll be my task for Sunday.

I've been to Dordogne a few times when I was younger, and I absolutely love this part of France, so it was extra special to bring Jason this time and visit beautiful sites with him. I think he enjoyed it ;)

Anyhow, life has been a bit full on for me lately, and I've had to deal with a lot of self-doubt and anxiety in the past months. During this holiday, I've had time to properly switch off, relax, and let go of any negative thoughts. It was exactly what I needed. I've come back more motivated than ever to do great work and create more for fun. There are so many personal projects I'd like to get on with and that I feel I never have the time for, but it's all up to me to make room for them, and I'm determined to do it.

I'm still battling with the whole thing of putting too much pressure on myself sometimes (see previous post here), and I feel that I'm getting better at it now. I still get overwhelmed with different situations and projects I've been working on, but since May, I'm really trying to step back and look at the situation a different way instead of letting it overwhelm me too much. It doesn't help when you get an email from somebody criticising your work just for the hell of it when you're back from your holiday! But you know what, it's not worth taking time to think about it too much and I'd rather concentrate on the good stuff.

I would be curious to know if you're a creative too and have been struggling with similar issues? How do you deal with it? I would love to discuss it with you guys. To be honest, without my boyfriend Jason, I don't think I would manage really well sometimes :)

Right, I think I've talked enough for today, so I'll let you enjoy your weekend! We're going to the cinema tonight and tomorrow we have an amazing light and sound show at the Abbaye de Bon Repos. Can't wait!
