Barbie show!!!!!

Dear friends,
I love Barbie and have a nice little collection of them and have one or more displayed in my home for my pleasure. I love Barbie. Recently there was a Barbie exhibition in the city and I would love to to cope with my anxiety. When I checked the web site to see what dates the exhibition was on there was only that day and it was going to close. What could I do. I had a busy day planned but my inner child kept saying...take me, take me to the Barbie show. So I did it. Felt the fear and did it anyway. I read on the train and took photos out the window to distract my anxieties. I had ticket problems and finding the place problems but I did it!!!! I got there and saw hundreds of Barbies. I didn't stay long as crowds add to my anxiety but I bought a few trinkets and headed home. I was so pleased with myself. Well done Suse. Well done.
lots of love from susan in australia

Wow - I really admire the way that you listened to your inner child and took her out to play - especially when it involved facing some anxieties. I love Barbies, too! I collect the international ones. How cool to see hundreds of them! I remember going to a toy store in Vegas and there were two life-size ones (or larger, don't 'member exactly). It's wonderful to hear that you take very good care of yourself :) Wendy
