Empowerment is a word that has been on my mind lately. I think about how there are so many talented women who can make the world a better place. There is no need to compete with everyone around you when you have yet to invest in what makes you unique. Often we as women feel pressure to become more beautiful, more fit, more powerful, more multi-faceted. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be a better person and earning better opportunities for ourselves and our families.
Empowerment for me is choosing myself. Choosing to believe in myself and choosing to believe that I can do anything I put my mind to. Empowerment is being my natural self. It is feeling good about myself even without a title, or makeup, or the praises of others.
I think it is very empowering when we can look ourselves in the mirror despite imperfections and see someone who is worthy of love. That love is so strong that no matter what you face in life, you will always be able to persevere.
Find what makes you feel empowered. Live a life of love by never neglecting to love yourself.
