1. Based on your reflections, and on a scale of 1 to 10 (ten being optimal wellbeing), where do you rate your A-physical wellbeing, B-spiritual well-being, C-psychological well-being? Why?
2. Develop a goal for yourself in each area (physical, spiritual, psychological).

Question 1

My Physical well being would be rated as a (10) because I am in excellent health, happy, and prosperous. I love my life as well as the people that are in it and is living it to the fullest.
My Spiritual well being which is one's connection to nature and to cosmic energy source would be rated as a (10) because I am feeling alive and very aware of the moment. I am also fully engaged with living my life. I have a sense of balance and control in my life. I have a sense of peace and well being. I am also able to take a break or a time-out from life's task without feeling guilty about it in anyway.
My Psychological well being which deals with depresion, lonliness, self-esteem, and life-satisfaction would be rated as a (10) because I now know how to cope with negative feelings of depression, lonliness, and I also value myself very highly regardless of what people think or say about me. I now know that what people may say about me is really none of my business. "Loving Life" is the best thing that I can do for myself.
My Psychological well being according to the Ryff Scale would be a (6) because my Self-Acceptance is very high. I love most aspects of my personality.
My purpose in life is not aimlessly. I feel that I am now truly walking in my purpose at 31 years of age.
Positive Relations with others I truly have developed and most people would definitely describe me as a giving person who is willing to share my time with others.

Question 2
My Physical goal is to lose 10 pounds by June
My Spiritual goal is to work on forgiving someone more quicker each time I am challenged to do so.
My Psychological goal would be to read more books and meditate more.

Question 3

The activity/exercise needed to assist with my Physical well-being would be (going to the gym and exercising more)
The activity needed to assist with my Spiritual well-being would be (reading my bible more)

Question 4

The crime of the century was beneficial to me because it was a very relaxing experience that relieved my stressors that were present at the time I listened to the exercise. It was frustrating to me because it felt kind of weird because I am not use to relaxing that deeply. I am a single mom who is constantly busy and on the go.


  1. hello Mary what an inspiration you are. Your blog is awesome and such a wonderful title Knowledge is the key! WOW a 10 in all three, all your input was insiring but the point I am walking in my purpose is very touching and meaningful to me because I believe I am still in search of I my total purpose. As I seek to learn I truly believe my purpose will find me.
    Thanks, Brenda, A

  2. Thanks Brenda I really appreciate your response your input really means alot to me. I also like how you summed up that statement about your purpose finding you. I truly believe that it most certainly will.

  3. Hi Mary,
    Waw I feel happy when I meet someone like you, so tuned with the world and so pleased with yourself. I was watchinh the Oscar awards the other day and saw an interview with the oscar winner Mo'nique; she was asked if she did plastic surgeries and her answer really inspired me, she said she loved what God gave her so much to tuck it, nip it, staple it or do anything but accept it. I think confidence come from acceptance, so for you to accept the fact that you need your time out and not feel guilty about it is a gift.
    I enjoyed your blog a lot and it truely inspired me to take what I can and accept what I can't, yet keep trying to aim for the best.

  4. Aww Fatima your response to my reply is very touchy to me almost brought tears to my eyes but I held back because my 4 year old is sitting in my lap. LOL can you imagine that I am sitting here holding a big 4 year old. Fatima Thanks again and you have a fantastic week oh and thanks for sharing the Monique story with me to. It was very interesting and real.
