An interesting word, empowered. what does it mean?

I was told by a younger, wise woman that if I want to empower others, my focus needs to be on empowering myself first.
How wonderfully accurate this proved to be. We cannot take others further than we have walked ourselves. We must first impact who we are.
The first step in changing us, is complete honesty. Look at where you are, and then look at where you want to be. How big is the gap? How can you close the gap?
Start by making small changes. Clear out the clutter and negative influences in your life.
Sometimes it requires moving forward alone. As you do this, you will find support and you will be empowered.
Courage is developed one step at a time. It’s the voice that says “Keep going. You wiĺl be ok”
Never compromise who you are, because of fear to move forward.
Life is always changing, growing. If you don’t challenge yourself and develope courage, you remain the same.
Empowering starts with You!
Be real, Be true, Be empowered
What are you wanting to change?
Till next time
Be the change
