B+ living.

I recently heard about this blog and I had to share it. It's a blog by a gal named Sarah Bagley, and she's kind of my hero. She's built this whole blog--updated daily, nothing you'll find here!--blog around the concept of letting go of perfection. That's gold for the anxious peeps like me. We need to be reminded constantly that it's okay to let go a little. Many of us are Type A overachievers. (Wrote about that recently here, too!)

Sarah's message isn't about being lazier. It's about living more simply. Giving ourselves permission. That's something my therapist has stressed, and it's worked wonders for me. Now when something challenging comes up, I give myself permission to face it however I see fit. I don't have to be on go-go-go mode. I can take a break, or cancel, or do whatever I want. It's not being selfish like it may be for some people. For an anxious person, that's called self-care. And we all deserve it!

Who needs an A+ life when B+ can be just as fabulous...and less taxing?
