Wishbones and Lucky Money

Do you think it is possible to have a mid life crisis at age 35?
I think I had a mini one last month. 
You know the "what do I want to do with my life" crisis.
A 35 year old lady can put a lot of pressure on herself.
The clock starts ticking real quick and choices need to be made.
It's a lot of pressure and I dealt with it by running home to California.
I think that was the best thing I could have done for myself. 
But, when you run away, your "issues" are always with you.
When I returned to my boys in Alabama, I was welcomed with lots of kisses and happy mail too.
Dear friends must have sensed my uneasiness.
I think it was pretty obvious.
I haven't taken a blog break in three years.
Anyhow, a few lucky charms awaited me.
A lucky (sparkly) wishbone necklace, lucky money, and a Martina Sciolino print. 
They are cheering me on.

I've found that I need to focus on keeping myself busy to be happy.
I need to do something creative everyday.
While my head is telling me that I am loosing my looks, my brain tells me to put those new running shoes on and get out there. 
FYI: I don't run but I walk really fast.
I need to always be looking forward to something. 
Right now I'm looking forward to Doo Nanny at the end of the month. 
I need to be nicer to myself.

Maybe you go through these moments too.
I just want you to know that you are not alone. 
Please, always know that.

p.s. We have some fabulous giveaways lined up for this month so please, don't be a stranger.

Funny you should write about this... YOU my lovely need to remember that you're not alone either... I'm not embarrassed to admit I had a full on melt down because I wanted my hair done so i could feel pretty for one of my besties' wedding on Saturday(my first bride's maid experience) i ended up just cancelling on my "hair stylist" cause I felt like she wasn't that committed to helping me...(yes its a family member so I wont get into it...) I think I cried for 8 hrs straight... I understand sweet friend... I love you... and you are a beauty... I wish I could be more like you... <3

Dear Kat,
I just want you to know that I love you and I think you're wonderful. I have days/weeks/and even months that feel that way...once I had a whole year. Just thinking of you always brightens my day! I hope that you are feeling better. I've been so busy lately, but I have been gathering some things to mail you. I will write you a letter soon.

Look at all the love just for you my sweet Kitty! You are a darling and a sexy bombshell of a babe!
Thank you for always being so open. The other ladies speak the truth! We've all been there! Probably more than once! I've had a few I WANT A BABY NOW melt downs in the 2 short years we've been married. I feel like a hen with no nest to brood upon. The radio news was blasting us with a new medical study about women over a certain age having babies & I started to get really anxious. The backlash from real women was phenomenal! They let the doctors have it! Women well into their 40s letting everyone know how they weren't ready before, how they wouldn't have been as good a parent and so on! There wasn't a down in the mix! No serious birth defects or illnesses to mention. Just happy & healthy babies and moms. My Father-in-law has just become a father again at the age of 59! His partner is 44! Baby George is healthy and gorgeous. {His impending arrival did nothing to help my broodiness and longing however}.
I'm 34. I've only been married 2 years. My clock is deafening some days. I've got the "middle age spread" all over my ass and I don't care {most days}!
Mr Woo adores me exactly as I am.
I was made to be a mom. I just have to be patient. You're the same. Just look at how nurtured and adored Bono Baby is. It's hard. I've cried so many tears over the desperate longing. So many women have.
I just wanted to tell you that you're not only gorgeous, but a total Betty! You're heart is so warm and overflowing with love and grace. You are special beyond description. Please let the words melt into your soul. Please believe us because we love you. We're also sassy women who don't mince words, so you can rest assured we speak the truth.
Allow the truth of how absolutely adored and wonderful you are set you free. Please do.

I love you so Kitty x o x o
and the baby bunnies send cuddles too x

As LuLu would say "Gets yours shoes ons" and we will go for a nice long walk through the cemetery. Lots of hills for our rear ends.

Love you, K

you are certainly not alone my dear. mid to late 30s is the second time the majority of individuals go through an identity crisis. The first is during the teen years when you are individualizing. So there are many many out there with you.
