Many of us have do not understand what personal power means. We have been given the false notion that power is bad,that it is something we use to exert our will upon others. In fact, when our personal power is intact, we are neither overbearing nor meek. We have a clear sense of our strength and the impact we can have on others. This actually enables us to be more sensitive. Personal power is what permits us to work on behalf of our dreams and desires. It allows us to realize that we are worthy and deserve to be heard. In addition, our personal power lets us extend the respect we know that we deserve to the people around us. There is no reason to be afraid or ashamed of fully owning your power.

A conversation with Haley today went something like.....

Just because a woman doesn't have a whole lot going for her (according so some people) doesn't mean she should latch on to a guy and get married because that's her only aspiration. You have to reach...far..for many things you want in life, and actually reaching those goals make them that much more valuable. The hardest things to reach are usually the things that make the most difference in your life and are what keep your life exciting. Never settle for the easy stuff.
