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.)

I choose to be awake to my fears, in all their varied forms…fear of not being enough, fear of going too deep, fear of letting go or getting lost, fear of being amazing, fear of the unknown magic of my dreams coming true. From this place of awareness, I choose to gather  my strength, developed from so many life lessons lived, and move ahead with courage, trusting that with clarity of purpose and calmness of heart, right action will lead me where I want to go.
