It took me a long time to understand and embrace empowerment. The word seemed too powerful, and I never felt good enough or worthy enough to hold on to it. It’s been a journey, but once I decided to find my power within, I would never look back.
My journey began over a decade ago, I was completely out of control, over spending, drinking, mad at the world, my husband left me for another woman, and I was running out of money, hope and faith. The only thing that made me smile, was my cat Hula. She was so soulful and always knew how I was feeling. When I would cry, she would snuggle up to me, and I felt all was good in that moment.
One night it all came to a head, I just didn’t want to go on, I couldn’t take it anymore, so I found myself curled up on the floor, crying, drunk and wanting to give up.
Suddenly I felt this pressure on my arm. I looked up with tears in my eyes, and there was my cat Hula, her paw was on my arm and her big green eyes, were staring deep into mine, and I swear at that moment I heard Hula say…”don’t give up, you are smart, I need you, you have the power, you can do this” Now… whether that was Hula, the universe, god, or just my own voice, it got my attention! There was a instant flow of hot energy that surged through my body, and I knew right then and there, I would not give up. I was going to listen to my cat, and I was going to take my power back.
So, my journey to loving myself began, I took control of my life, because I realized I had a choice, to stay where I was at, miserable, or to start making changes and move forward. Yes.. It has been a process, I’ve worked hard, with a few up’s and downs, but a process, that I wouldn’t trade for anything. Today, I am in control, and feel empowered every day with the choices I make. It may not be your cat that tells you to make those changes, but who ever or what ever it is, be sure to listen!
It’s important that we share our journey’s, because if it can help just one person, it will continue on as a ripple affect.
Here are 6 empowerment tools that worked for me, and I want to share them with you, so your journey can begin.
- Create Boundaries: Practice the power of “NO”, it will bring incredible empowerment, You know, you say “Yes” to much.
- Have A Growth Mindset: Be open to new thoughts and ideas, look at challenges as opportunities not obstacles.
- Money Mindset: Be intentional with money, pay off debt, stop buying the shiny object, and put money away. This will create a feeling of control and security
- Surround Yourself With Positive People: My Father always said “Patricia, Surround yourself with positive and successful people” When I didn’t follow that advice, I felt my energy being sucked out of me. Your take away…follow my dads advice!
- Be Truthful With Yourself: Acknowledge your faults, when you do, you can fix them, remember it’s OK not to be perfect!
- Read Self-Growth Books and Articles daily: The more you know, the more motivated and empowered you become. Knowledge is power.
By working on these 6 tools of empowerment daily, you will find a feeling of control and confidence begin to emerge. Have intention, and focus, the new you, is just around the corner.
