Checking in

Standard

Hey gang!

Oh, let’s see…what’s going on with me.  Doing a little better – having good days and bad days.  Still trying to figure out what I need – I’m exploring some emotional eating stuff, still trying to decide if I want to go into therapy – some days I think I don’t really need it, and then others…well you know. I think I”m going to schedule a physical – I haven’t had one in years and my bff thinks I need to get my blood work checked and get on some vitamins. I’m wondering if I’m starting to go through peri-menopause or something.  So there’s that.

I think my first priority is to get some balance. I spend disgusting amounts of time on everyone but me and I think the universe is telling me that I matter too, so I had better start being kind to myself. So really that’s what I”m focusing on right now – doing things that soothe my soul – the word “nourish” keeps coming into my head also. Trying to focus on that: nourishing foods, activities that nourish me, etc. I think I’m malnourished – in more ways than one.

Balance is a hard thing for an American woman to achieve, but I think it’s going to be the only thing that saves me.

I did want to say THANK YOU to all of you who left me such great comments – I appreciate you all so much!!  You will never know how much you all lift me up!  🙂

  1. Aww Sweetie. Don’t give up.
    And therapy can be a good thing, with the right therapist…and they’re not just for crazy people anymore! (That was a joke)
    I think it’s harder for women to make the whole home/work thing balance out, we want to do it all…but there’s just not enough time in the day.
    Don’t be too hard on yourself!
    We all love you.

  2. It’s easy to let yourself be the one who doesn’t get what she needs. We’re all so busy and have so many responsibility. Well, I say that you have a responsibility to take care of yourself. Frankly, it’s probably your most important responsbility, because it’s the source of strength that’ll allow you to take care of the rest of what needs taking care of. It’s difficult to shift those priorities around, but I encourage you to do it.

    Good luck.

    Jack’s comment was great. And I do think this whole ‘crisis’ is more about needing to nourish yourself than it is about what food you choose to eat. Balance, margin, nourish. You are worth it. And your kids will thank you for it (eventually.)

  4. Man, you guys ROCK.

    Heather – your therapist joke made me laugh!! “their not just for crazy people anymore!” heehee!!!

    Jack – wise words, my friend. And I really thank you for them.

    Debby – sometimes you hit the nail EXACTLY on the head – “this whole ‘crisis’ is more about needing to nourish yourself than it is about what food you choose to eat.” I think you are so right. *high five*

  5. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has
    a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    web without my authorization. Do you know any
    methods to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate it.
