You’ve got the POWER!

By  | 

“Life is tough and so are you!” is the bold message that greeted me when I clicked on my bestie’s blog for my daily dose of inspiration. I began to think about that simple 7 word phrase which held so much power and meaning. People always tend to say the first half but it’s rarely followed by the second part of empowerment. This simple statement gives us a reminder that we have the choice and the power to tap into our inner strength while dealing with life’s ups and downs.

This scenario has played out with each and every one of us at some point in our lives. We hit an intense bump in the road we begin feeling of helpless, hopeless, and powerless. We’re usually able to quickly snap back but sometimes the only thing we feel like doing is throwing in the towel.

“You Got the Power!” wasn’t just a catchy song in the 80’s but a pearl of wisdom that just happened to have a high energy beat in the background.  No matter what situations present themselves, we need to realize that we may not have control over what comes our way. What we DO have control over, however, is how we decide to handle the test. We have the choice of sulking or looking within and realizing that all we need is right here. I write this all the time but you live once, don’t let precious moments be swept away by playing victim to life’s twists and turns. The beauty of life is in the journey. When you fall down, it’s just a reminder that you have the power to overcome!

Miracles & Blessings,
