Feeling Blue

I think that this article about the places in the world where people live the longest, healthy lives is something I need to flag here and read again and again myself. Simple, no nonsense, straight-forward commonsense. And it's *not* hard to live life as if one were in a Blue Zone.

But I don't do it.

Sara,

I say this with all the love in the world: Please stop beating yourself up for not being perfect.

No one is perfect.

No one.

You are beautiful and strong just as you are, right now, this minute. Believe it.

Yes, the choices you make about what you eat, how stressed out you are, how much you exercise, etc., all have an impact on your health. That doesn't mean you have to hold yourself up to some unattainable standard of perfection. Your worth as a human being has absolutely nothing to do with the food you put in your mouth.

Love yourself, and the rest will follow.
