I am healthy. I honor my body with exercise and nutritious food. I honor my mind, thinking and giving it meaningful challenges. I honor my soul, slowing a little each day to appreciate the abundance and beauty in my life. I recognize that I am imperfect and forgive myself when I stray some from my healthy goals, confident that my next choice will be in greater alignment with what I want for my body, mind, and soul.


This blog and the rest through November are part of my Confidence Building series. (You might also be interested in my posts with my Guiding Principles and on Sustaining Confidence.)

* The photos featured in today’s blog and those for the upcoming week were all taken in San Agustinillo, Oaxaca, Mexico – a peaceful haven to which I return to year after year to celebrate life with my husband Jim.)

  1. What is most helpful to me in this post (knowing that it IS all about me – ;=)) is the idea that perhaps I am healthy RIGHT NOW, just as I am. I am never satisfied with my health. “I shouldn’t have eaten that granola.”, “I should have gone to yoga tonight.” Never mind that whilst in Savannah I’ve been walking an average of 38 miles a week, yoga 3-4 times a week, and cooking most of my meals, which are healthy. Then when I have a turkey ruben on rye with fries and a Savannah Brown Ale, I beat myself up. “Shoulda had the grilled chicken salad!” UGH. Enough already. Stop the maddness! I wouldn’t be satisfied if I had nothing but wheatgrass and orange juice for the rest of my life, I’d still find something wrong with it. Thank you for helping me see that I am healthy RIGHT NOW. Gracious!
