March 2010 


dr heidiAt this point many of us are starting to feel the hopeful aspirations of our New Year's resolutions fade away.  Beyond that many of us may be once again putting ourselves down for our glaring imperfections.  Striving for perfection seems to be one of the most accepted illusions of our time. 

Trying to be the perfect parent, coworker, spouse or to have the pe
rfect body, status or income is an obsession each of us suffer from on one level or another.  But the truth is that this perfection we all unconsciously seek will never arrive nor was it meant to.  Imperfection is part of our design.  Light cannot be without darkness, peaks do not exist without valleys, yin must be balanced by yang.

But knowing this is only the first step.  Accepting it and therefore accepting ourselves in all of our imperfection is the ultimate freeing destination.  A tree grows, its leaves fall, its fruit ripens than rots.  But the tree does not worry when its leaves are brown and wrinkly nor when its fruit is turning to soil.  We are not trees, but just as nature reflects we too are meant to experience seasons as well as peaks and valleys

So with your resolutions, goals and growth this year, just do your best everyday and allow that to be perfect.  Consider your body's aches and pains and imperfections the same way.  Your path to wellness will have its good days and its bad as long as your on the path that is enough.  Until our next adjustment... 


Yours in health,

Dr. Heidi & The InnerMovement Wellness Team
