The power

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I am trudging onward and will not let others have the power to keep me from achieving my goal. I tell my girls at work all the time not to give away their power. They are always blaming someone for their mistakes, faults, short comings ... I tell them to stand up and take responsibility for their actions. I tell them blaming others is giving them way too much power over them. They are letting others control how their life turns out and they need to take that power back. So ... I am working on taking back all of my own power from the many I have given it away to. I know that I can do this!

    Karon, You are one amazing women. You are so strong, even if you don't feel that way. One day at a time, one step at a time.

    Been missing you...I had to get back my Power last week due to me slipping up for a few weeks. Now all is good and I feel great!

    Great wisdom in this post, Karon! Too many of us are content to be victims through blame ("I can't do this because..."), rather than be victors through self-accountability (e.g., "I messed up and this is what I'll do differently next time"). You have overcome much in your journey, and I have no doubt you will overcome the obstacles in your way today. And what a wonderful example you give your girls -- they can learn by example from you, if they open their minds to hear the lessons you're teaching. God bless you in your work!
