One of the definitions for Empowerment is “the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights.” Women and men alike try various lifestyle modifications to become stronger both mentally and physically. We educate ourselves to become more confident and we seek avenues to have more control over our time…our life… especially work-life balance.
I received a text from a longtime friend yesterday it read…”Checking in.” Wow had it been that long since I took the time out of what I deem a busy schedule to call my friend and chat. I immediately called my friend and we had the most uplifting and joyful conversation. My friend missed me and the fun we share in just being ourselves. It was an epiphany for me that as I was seeking empowerment for myself and those in my day to day environment; I need to remember to expand this empowerment to those friends and distant family members that live in other states.
Empowerment is a multi-faceted concept! What does empowerment look like, feel like for you?
