Life can sometimes feel overwhelming, and while most of what happens is out of your control, the most empowering piece of understanding is that your experience of it doesn't have to be.
At it's core, here's a simple reminder that you are always in control of your experience of life and that no body can take that away from you.
With a little practice and cultivation, there are pieces of your life that will always remain yours.
Here's a simple list of some empowering things you are always in control of:
How honest you are
What books you read
The choices you make
How you treat yourself
How many risks you take
How kind you are to others
How often you say i love you
Whether or not you ask for help
How you express your thoughts
Who you associate yourself with
What you do with your spare time
How many times you smile each day
How often you think about your past
How much time you spend worrying
Whether or not you choose to try again
How often you let yourself appreciate life
Understanding those, here's some simple questions to ask around them:
Where are you taking that power and embodying it?
Where are you giving it away?
Which ones of those are the most important to cultivate?
Which ones mean the most to you? Why?
