I feel complete with who and where I am. Through gratitude and intentional thought and action, I create alignment with my beliefs. When I am in integrity, I honor all aspects of my being and let go of any judgment and attachment that might divide me or leave me feeling broken. I am whole in all my imperfection and brilliance.


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.)


Feeling vibrantly alive

It was a delicious summer day – sunshine, comfortable temperature, slight breeze, no humidity. The kind of day that calls you outside to relish Mother Nature’s gifts. I went for a bike ride, and, oh, it was so wonderful coasting along! (I’ve written about the joy of bike riding before: First Spring Bike Ride.)

I felt so grounded during the first half of the day (you can read more at In search of wholeness). The opportunity to be away from my computer opened me up and my creativity overflowed…one of those days when the pen moves on the paper, capturing ideas, almost without any effort at all on my part.

[No comment on the second part of the day, which was more like a tornado!]
