Sanity Check In

As a heads up, this photo has nothing to do with this post.  But it makes me laugh.
Food all over her clothes and face, insisting she sucks on the lime.
This is what was captured and it makes me smile.
But back to the sanity part.

Remember this post on what I would like to call my "33 Year Old Mid Life Crisis"?  I thought I would update you all so that it does not seem like I brushed it under the rug.  Yes, I know there are way more fun things to talk about but shockingly, my life isn't all shoes and fashion designers.  Can you believe it?!  But back to the anxiety.  The good news is that even though I have not been talking about it, I have been working on it.

First of all, I have gotten SO much better at letting things go.  House a little messy?  I am over it.  Laundry piling up.  Oh well.  In the end, it all gets done, but I am just not consumed by my perfection.  With three kids and a hubby, it is just not possible.  I also take more baths, plan more date nights, don't cook dinner every night and get out with girlfriends when I can.  Most importantly, I have stayed committed to seeing my therapist and it has made all the difference in the world.  She is pretty amazing and I cannot tell you how nice it is to have someone to go to (now once a month) where I can just LET IT ALL OUT.  I should have been doing this a LOOOOONG time ago.

I am not saying the anxiety is gone.  In fact, it is still well and present.  The good thing is, I am controlling it and not letting it control me.  BIG DIFFERENCE.  I feel like I know myself so much better now and have the confidence that this is only a bump in the road of life.  We all have our things right?

So there you have it.  A little update.

On a less serious but quite awesome note, PBSKids SoCal asked me a few weeks back to guest blog and of course I said yes!  Who doesn't love PBS (duh, Sesame Street)?!  Click here to read about the challenge they gave my picky eaters!


  1. Good for you! I've been wanting to go to a therapist for years but don't know how to go about finding a good one. Glad things are getting better for you!
