With her commitment to self-knowledge and self-awareness, an empowered woman is able to wield her power to choose her response in all situations and circumstances. She knows that her freedom and the quality of her life is inherent in her day to day choices. 🦋
An empowered woman does not seek validation outside of herself, rather she sees her self-validation in the world she creates. 🦋
An empowered woman knows that she alone is the source, the cause affecting an effect in her world.
She understands that the quality of her experiences is in her control, as it is she who shapes every moment with her awareness of ‘self’ with what or whom presents itself. 🦋
An empowered woman knows that she and she alone has the power, the final word, to influence her inner world and that her outer world is merely a reflection of what is in her heart, mind and soul.
An empowered woman knows that her creative brilliance, her ability to decide and her courage to act are all hers to orchestrate as she desires, to create change, to make a difference.
On my early morning walks by the river … I have passed by this magnificent Thistle a hundred times … at each glance I am inspired by her striking stance … she reminds me of an EMPOWERED WOMAN … standing tall, regal, and strong … her delicate purple flower is her crowning glory … attracting life-sustaining bees … encouraging them to carry out their vital work … her robust stem is boldly covered in sharp pointy thorns … her shield … protecting her and her community from adversity … although she grows skyward … she is firmly grounded with her persevering grip of the land that nourishes her roots … she is considered as a weed … wild and unwanted … in spite of efforts of alienating her body and soul … she continues to flourish … yes my noble Thistle … you are my emblem of empowerment.
