I understand that in order to give OF myself, I must give TO myself. I don’t apologize for taking the time I need to care for myself. I choose to do things that inspire me and that bring joy into my life. It is from there that great things beyond my imagination are possible. Balance opens opportunity. Balance creates strength. Balance provides the foundation for moving forward with confidence.

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 for the last week of November 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.)

Hope lives inside of me. I get up each day looking toward new possibilities. Not to be ‘be good’ or ‘do better’ but to surrender to the amazing person I am and what I might create with a deep appreciation of all that is abundant in me. I take small movements toward my dreams and with each little step find open doors and opportunities. I believe in the power of perspective and positive outlook. I choose to live into today with hope in my heart.

CB – Possibility

I open to what is possible and allow myself to dream. I invite new, bigger, abundantly delicious ideas, turning off the filter of fear, and leaning in to my strengths and capabilities to create something that I only can create. When something lets me down or I feel like I have failed in some way, I  seize that moment of possibility for growth. I breathe in and find determination; I breath out and move one step closer to great things.

Confidence Building – Intention

I create my reality by setting clear intentions for my life. Clear intentions will lead to actions that are aligned with what is important to me. By focusing my energy on what’s possible, I move boldly in the direction of my dreams, in a way that  feels right.
