The emotions of mixing a song

It's amazing the emotions I go through while mixing a song.

Excited to start

Accomplished to get things roughed in

Overwhelmed to have things not come together as quickly as I'd like

Anxious to check how it sounds in other places like the car

Let down to struggle with parts of the mix

Excited to see the song polished up and coming together better

Anxious to hear feedback from the client when a ref is sent

Second guessing my skills as I wait to hear from client

Pumped up to hear from an excited client who likes the mix

I go through about every one of these for every song I mix. It's a rollercoaster which can wear me down sometimes and also build me up other times.
