Change Your Life Today! 50 Most Empowering Words

 

50 EMPOWERING WORDS

Need to feel empowered today? Here’s how.

Suffice to say, words CHANGE LIVES.   They move us to move mountains.  They break spirits.  They can also build, embolden, and yes, EMPOWER.

Words have brilliance and the potential power to unleash emotions strong enough to overwhelm each and every one of us.  Words incite us, inspire us, make us fall in love, go to war and save lives.

The English language has some 1,009,614 words according to an estimate by the Global Language Monitor on March 21, 2011. So there is a veritable plethora of succulent, delightful and delicious verbiage.

Do you have a GO-TO “Power Words”  List?  Let me share my list with you. See what it invokes in you, what it stirs you to think, to feel, to behave, to take ACTION!   What INSPIRES, MOTIVATES, MOVES you?  This will change your life – here’s how.

UNFINISHED. Why You Should Be. Why It Matters.

So here’s how this works, and you can probably relate… I get these brilliant ideas for a story, or a story idea — even a tidbit of juiciness–sparks of creativity—glimpses of genius—and I race to capture them.  Before they race away into the vast recesses of my grey matter.

So I have probably oh, I don’t know, 27 posts ‘pending’.  27 drafts. Works in ‘progress’.

This might bother a sane mind.

It would bother my insane mind if IDIDN’T have a bunch of inspiration to work with.  Cuz, Baby, you gotta strike while the iron is hot, the sparks are flying, guns are blazin’….  and ya gotta fit it in somewhere between the phone calls, the emails, the kids throwing toys across the room, and pouring yourself another glass a wine.

One of those juicy tidbits of mine was called, “Unfinished.”

“Just A Mom”?? Screw That! Mom IS the Most Empowered!

“JUST a Mom?” “Oh, you don’t work?” If one more person would’ve said those phrases- I might seriously go all Italian on them! Going from a high-profile, public career as an anchor and reporter to having 3 babies within 21 months-(yes, a set of twins in that mix)-to caring for 3 infants was, let’s just…

“Crap, What NOW!?!” 10 Tips To Guide Your Way Through Challenges

Obstacle Paths, Bricks and Rocks (By Popular Demand and Request I am posting this again as you face any challenges.) See, the thing about 6-year-olds is they are busy. Very busy.

Empowering Qualities – Things To Do and Think To Empower Yourself Today

Want to Empower Yourself Today?

Here’s some tips.

What is it to EMPOWER? What is it to BE EMPOWERED?

The beauty and the POWER of it is: it’s as unique as YOU.

YOU are in control of it.  Whether or not you feel EMPOWERED or if you feel powerless.

It’s not magic.  It’s ACTION.

And it’s unique to you.

In other words, what works for someone else may not work for you – that’s the sheer brilliance and power of it all. You don’t have to follow ANYONE ELSE’s path. You don’t have to model yourself after anyone.  Can you use techniques and behaviors of others? Absolutely. But what works for you to uplift, inspire, make the changes you need to make: THAT is YOUR story.  And you have the ability to go from powerLESS to EMPOWERED.

It’s one step at a time.  It’s a journey.  But YOU can and WILL get there.

You must first believe in yourself – and if you can’t do that just yet (hang on- you WILL get there).

You must make some decisions: What is holding you back? What is it that you want? What is draining your power currently? What’s the first step/or area you want initial impact?

As you answer those – the behaviors create inertia for further change and improvement.

Make ONE small decision, just one small change TODAY.

You are now on your way to permanent change and on your way to EMPOWERING yourself.

How To Get Fired As A Room Mom

I can’t take it anymore.  THIS is NOT September people!  It’s June.  We are done-kids, teachers, parents. Done with school!

Full-on whooped.  No more bright and shiny like when the school year started. No more everything getting done on time – much less BEFORE it’s due.

Now it’s more like, “WHAT? What is due? When is that ceremony? How many more activities?  We had 3 weeks, and you’re telling me 5 minutes before it’s due? Seriously, you’re not even thinking about asking me to do another project, play, event, are you?” I may smack the next person that tells me there’s another event.  Since that’s typically frowned upon–I could always opt for another root canal.

I am so flipping checked out of school by now – it’s surprising my kids even get there.

And get this: I’m ROOM MOM.

Not just that. I’m LEAD ROOM MOM. Oh my gawd…who allowed that to happen??

But now, I think I got fired as Room Mom.
