Many of us spend December 31st reflecting on our year, cherishing the happy moments, unpacking the challenging experiences, celebrating our wins and grieving our losses.
We meander through our past 364 days taking notes of how it will be different in the upcoming new year.
We start a list on how we will fix our bodies, finances, relationships, work and other aspects of our life that are not quite right or all together wrong.
We contemplate what we will need to stop or start doing so that the flaws will finally be banished, the glorious exalted and the big wins trophied.
Oh what a triumphant year it will be!
Tic Toc, it’s January 1st the new year has begun. Merrily we skip onto our field of dreams, spinning with joy, inhaling rainbows, daisies and unicorns.
Tic Toc, it’s February 15th, six weeks into the new year.
Describe what you are feeling. Successful? Fulfilled? Empowered to keep moving on the right path towards your hearts desire? Stuck in the same old rut? Wanting?
Now ask yourself this one fundamental question that will perpetually inspire you to build your platform for positive outcomes.
When we change our inner world of thoughts and feelings, our newly aligned behaviour begins to effect our outer world and we awaken to what we innately know that ‘yes’ we are a spark of the divine creating the moments of our life. 🦋
Nothing can trigger you except for your own perspective.
Nothing can restrain you except for your unruly imagination.
Nothing can control you except for your own unquestioned beliefs.
You are the source that reacts to people, situations and the world.
You are the decider, determining the quality of your experiences. 🦋
How might your life be different if you believed that you are loved, lovable and loving? 🦋
And then it happens…
One day you wake up and you’re in this place.
You’re in this place where everything feels right.
Your heart is calm.
Your soul is lit.
Your thoughts are positive. Your vision is clear.
You’re at peace, at peace with where you’ve been, at peace with what you’ve been through and at peace with where you’re headed. 🦋
Awake, we always have a choice to do it differently! 🦋
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. 🦋
The compelling reason for almost everything we do or not do is to feel one of our coveted feelings. What are your coveted feelings and what do you usually do to feel them? 🦋
Never give up on ‘being in love’. Never compromise your heart’s desire to love and to be loved deeply.
You weren’t born to settle for crumbs so stop accommodating your fears and start living in love. 🦋
The one person you will live with throughout your life time is you. You might as well reclaim your own ground and lovingly embrace your beautiful soul. To know and understand your ‘self’ makes you indestructible, in that nothing and no one can threaten your sense of wellbeing. 🦋
The question ‘why’ is a door way into our inner world, our thoughts, the driving force of all of our experiences. Here are a few ‘why’ questions you may want to ask yourself. Warning, these questions may inspire you to own your power. Why am I choosing to think that? Why am I choosing to feel that? Why am I choosing to do that? Why am I choosing to create that. Why am I choosing to sabotage that? Why am I choosing to doubt myself? Why am I procrastinating? Why am I overweight, in debt, struggling at work, still in this relationship, not in a relationship … 🦋
So, why not you? If they can be, do and have what they desire, then why not you? How are you less deserving? 🦋
Be You! That is your superpower! There is nothing more beautiful, inspiring or powerful than a woman unapologetically being herself. The true essence of beauty is authentic fluency, the language of self awareness, respect and confidence. You are extraordinary, be you. It is enough, more than enough! 🦋
All woman are gloriously powerful beyond earthly measure and yet only a few brave hearts will dare to own their luminous crown and wield their magical sceptre, to rebirth their divine right to be happy, whole and successful! Be that proud self-empowered woman! We need the reemergence of your feminine power. 🦋
Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned. 🦋
~ William Congreve
Our desires define our priorities, priorities inspire our choices and choices empower our actions. 🦋
We all have the power of choice. The only action we can control in any emotionally charged situation is how we choose to ‘react’ or ‘respond’.
Our choice can affect the outcome one way or another.
When we ‘respond’ to a situation, we are consciously in our power with the intention to create positive momentum aimed at mutual understanding and satisfaction.
When we ‘react’ we tend to be out of control, defensive and combative, spiralling deeper into drama, fanning the flames of our ego.
The next time you are in a challenging situation and your ego becomes triggered by fear, and you can feel frustration, annoyance, disappointment or some other defensive emotion rising to the surface, pause.
Take a deep breath and remind yourself that you have the power to transform the energy, direction and outcome of any situation with your response.🦋
The moment you own your life’s journey you don your cape and step out of victimhood. Figure out what you need to do to be the the heroine of your own story. 🦋
The surest sign of an empowered woman is that she is helping other women to rise. 🦋
2018 = 365 opportunities to reimagine, influence and shape your inner and outer world, so that your life, work, relationships and day-to-day experiences are a true reflection of you, the unique, authentic and empowered you. Now that’s something to be excited about. Hello 2018!
Who we decide to be in any given situation, is a choice that we can control. Queen or slave girl, victim or victor, empowered or powerless ….
Personal integrity weathers all storms.
Judit e. Szabo
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
I don’t believe in circumstances.
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.
~ George Bernard Shaw
