Its Complicated

With Facebook changing their layout AGAIN, I have noticed a lot of people updating their personal information and it seems to me a majority of my Facebook friends have a "its complicated" relationship status. Do you see them? Are you one of them? Do you wish you were one of them? It got me thinking, aren't all relationships complicated? Particularly business relationships.

Hopefully by now you have seen the announcement that I am expanding B&A and have added a new business partner and team members and I'm so excited for all the new opportunities that are coming our way. But even good relationships are complicated. Trying to get everyone coordinated and tasks delegated and decisions made, there are a lot of factors involved to consider. Its a complicated web. The relationships I have with my clients are the same. I'm asked a lot what I do for my clients and I start running down a list of things that go on in my daily life at client's and people always say, "wow, that's a lot. How do you keep it all straight?" My answer, "Its complicated."

There are days that I just wish relationships were simple and there were no complications, were I could get up, go to the gym, go to work and do the 2 or 3 tasks that job requires, go home, eat dinner, watch tv and go to bed and do it all over again the next day. But wouldn't that make for a boring life? I think I like that my relationships with my friends, family and co-workers are complicated. Every single last one of them. Otherwise I would get bored. Don't get me wrong, sometimes boring is blissful, but in the overall picture I think I prefer to have complicated. Its gives us character (apparently I have enough character to fill a whole room). So the next time you are stressed out and overwhelmed, remember all relationships are complicated and if they weren't you probably would be out of a job.
