Does it empower you? A question I was asked when I was shown a pic of a woman expressing “freedom” through her semi naked body.
My answer was: “I empower myself!” Lol.
Now I didn’t say that because I found something wrong with the pic nor did I find anything wrong with her being semi-naked, nor that being naked is not empowering. It just didn’t empower me.
But later I asked myself, “What empowers me?” I began to think about all of the things I know, the gifts I’ve been given, the skills I posses, my ability to reinvent myself, my courage, my sense of humor, my struggles and how I overcame them, my drive and determination, being comfortable in my own skin, my vulnerability and the ability to love.
I took a long look at myself….
Yep, I felt empowered.
When you look at yourself in the mirror remember this: the mirror is a reminder of the most important power we posses: Love.
Love yourself and be empowered! ~Me
