"Grow Yourself Complete"

Gentle Empowerment

“Who you are is strong enough to bear your pain.”  Iyanla Vanzant

Iyanla Vanzant is brilliant and I believe her.

I have heard it said that God will not give you any more than you can handle.  I have to believe this.

Although, at times, ‘getting through’ doesn’t always feel possible.

However, so far, in my life, it has been so.  Most likely, for you as well, you have survived much.

I have seen amazingly strong people.   I have witnessed the perseverance, love, strength and fortitude of many.

I believe that to bring your truest of self to each situation in your most loving way again and again and again may be the greatest strength we humans can muster.  To be vulnerable and trust ourselves to be okay with whatever comes our way is true courage.

Sharing who you are in all aspects of life [from a place of compassion and wanting to understand another with an open heart] is, perhaps, one of the greatest things we can do with and for one another.

May you allow ‘gentle empowerment’ to happen through (and with) your own open mind, heart, soul and humanness.

May you believe that you are strong enough to live your best life out and forward through everything that comes your way throughout the rest of your days here on Earth.

Gentle Empowerment on!
