Personality Features

Never before has there been so much free advice at our fingertips for self-help in managing depression and anxiety, but so many years of trying to overcome the dumps by reading articles about gratitude and quotes about happiness and writing lists about small successes makes me more feel like I’m trying to dig myself out of quicksand. All of the thinking and meaning-making about my mood does nothing to improve my happiness. There’s no logical solution to this because it’s an unreasonable problem.

Usually a little tendency toward depression or mania is an advantageous personality feature, and once in a while it’s torture. But I think I have gotten really good at surrounding myself with stabilizing forces so I can have my moments to bounce off the wall and still maintain a realistic grasp on what is going on in my mind–specifically, what’s under control and what’s not. But I never gratitude-listed or happiness-hashtagged my way out of depression or dread or angst, and I’ve found it to be good for me to give up the impulse to over-analyze or an obsession to understand. To say “Okay, this is how I am and these are my limitations,” rather than let the (completely human) urge to fix myself drive me deeper into the pit of self-doubt and worry.

90-Minute Keynote

Posing a few questions to fellow speakers, fellow audience members (current and former), and fellow easily distracted people. Next month I'm presenting a 90-minute keynote address at a conference (subject: new-media marketing/youth markets) and I am terrified. Looking to my friends for a little guidance and reassurance on this.

Le Big Sale: 50% all shoes!

All of our fall deliveries are starting to come in and the boxes of inventory are piling up in a labyrinthian maze around the common areas of the office. We're hauling the shipments in, unpacking them, and checking quality as fast as they're arriving. It seems like we always have way more coming for fall than for spring, so this is like Christmas for me. My entire wardrobe for the next year is arriving!
