This is what it means to be an empowered woman
The empowered woman moves through the world with a sense of confidence and grace.
She goes through life with a positive attitude.
This woman knows that no condition lasts forever whether good or bad.
She embraces her challenges with courage and determination to come out better.
Her once reckless spirit is now tempered by wisdom.
Her need to be accepted, liked and validated by others have been replaced by a wholesome sense of self confidence.
Quietly, yet firmly, she speaks her truth without doubt or hesitation and the life she leads is of her own creation.
She now understands what it means to live and let live.
She now knows how much to ask for herself and how much to give.
She has learnt how to say yes and no when it matters without feeling guilty.
She knows she comes first and loving herself more sets standards for others to follow.
She has a strong, yet generous heart and the inner beauty she emanates truly sets her apart.
Like the mythical Phoenix, she has risen from the ashes and soared to a new plane of existence, unfettered by the things that once posed resistance to her growth.
Her senses are now heightened, she sees everything so clearly.
She hears the wind rustling through the trees; beckoning her to live the dreams she holds so dearly.
She feels the softness of her hands and muses at the strength that they possess.
Her needs and desires she has learned to express.
She has tasted the bitter and savoured the sweet fruits of life, overcome adversity and pushed past heartache and strife.
The one thing she never understood, she now knows to be true, it all begins and ends with her.
And she now understands that she matters.
She matters to herself.
She matters to her loved ones.
She matters to the world.
She is working hard to be everything God created her to be.
She’s not waiting for money and things to be handed over to her.
Her talents create wealth as she uses them to bless mankind.
And she’s not looking back until she becomes everything she sees in her mind’s eye.
That is an empowered woman in all her glory.
