your power is yours to keep. it exists within your thoughts, feelings, and choices. it belongs to you. donâ€™t give it away. and donâ€™t condemn others when you choose to give your power away because they chose not to. choose again. empowerment never comes from an external source.
suffering is a decision.
perception defines the inward experience of anything. choose better.
sit with that. feel it out. take it in.
to imply that choice alone is the difference between feeling bad, good, or great, or between feeling powerless and powerful is almost tauntingly, if not deceptively, simple sounding. however, it is simple, but not necessarily easy. the trick is that a half-hearted commitment won’t suffice. there is no middle ground.
here are some things that have helped me retain my power:
here’s to happy living!
My belated apologies for not posting anything or even posting this message beforehand but I’ve been traveling. Remember this? That’s what I’ve been up to for the past few weeks. An abundance of thoughts and feelings overwhelm me.
For now, I’ll just say that the last few days in the beautiful and wondrous Barcelona have reminded me of all the magic in this world; the magic that has been and the magic that will be. Imagine walking down a street, knowing so little of the language that at every block you have to once again ask for directions just to make sure you’re heading the right way. That’s been my reality. Even with its moments of trepidation, I can attest to the gloriousness of it all.
When it all falls apart, or when it never fully connected in the first place, “you figure it out,” as someone told me I would prior to my departure. I figured it out. It all came together.
#notetoself: go with the flow. have some faith. use your intuition.
