21 Jul Do You Own Your Power?
“All the water in the world cannot drown me, unless it gets inside me.” Eleanor Roosevelt
The first lady said this in response to horrible treatment by the press during her husband’s time as president. She was a magnificent woman and had a tremendous impact on history; because she chose to stand guard at the portal of her mind and her self-esteem and not allow the negative words of the press and others to affect her.
No one can affect your happiness without your permission, so simply don’t give them permission. If you perceive someone in your life as “negative”, remember that they are doing the best they can, with what they know. Be a positive influence for them by standing strong in your own power to choose how you think, how you feel and how you respond. View them with love and compassion and hold tight to your own joy.
You are creating your life! Choose your thoughts, your words and your actions and create a life you truly LOVE living!
