What is empowering and freeing?

1.  It is empowering to be human and to be flawed.

2.  It is empowering to accept yourself as you are instead of as you should have been or would have been.

3.  It is empowering to like all the things you like instead of what others like because it is popular.

4.  It is empowering to say I have weaknesses.

5.  It is empowering to try something more than once before deciding whether or not you really like it.

6.  It is empowering to change your mind.

7.  It is empowering to know that if people don’t understand you then they probably aren’t the people you need to be with or talk to.

8.  It is empowering to be able to choose whom you share your secrets with and whom to befriend.

9.  It is empowering to know you won’t please everyone nor should you try.

10.  It is empowering to know that sometimes you make others jealous (although you might wish they wouldn’t be).

Look around.  There are sources of information, inspiration, and empowerment all around you.  Take note of and know your own personal power.
