Some times strength has to be taught, and sometimes you are born with all the power you need. I wasn’t born with the strength that I have today. However, I was born with a low tolerance level for irrationality. Foolishness and inconsistent behavior have never been amusing to me. It’s no surprise that my husband and my kids share that same attribute. I think that’s why we can all spend so much time together and get along so well.
When I was just a young child, I second-guessed myself all the time, I felt like I was never good enough. I often had people make fun of me for different things, but everyone did. Right? Then one day I said enough is enough. I made a promise to myself to never let words or opinions affect me. I quickly learned how to simply turn my back and twirl in a positive direction.
I quickly adjusted my frame by holding my head up and chest out. My stride says a lot about who I am. I’m a woman that walks with power. I have a hard walk, and I take long strides. (Maybe that’s why the military fit so well with my personality.) I walk with a sense of purpose, and that’s how I handle everything in my life. I hold all the power within my life. I control my outcome by how much effort I put into my work, my household, my kids, and my marriage. If all those things crumble and fail, I have to do a self-evaluation and fix everything that is broken within me. Then readjust my walk.
Of course, it’s impossible to walk with power every day because, after all, we are human and have moments where we are tired and need someone to hold us up. That’s okay. But when you can regain your strength, do it with a sense of urgency. Don’t waste time thinking about how you stumbled or why you needed help. Just know that you are up again and feeling powerful.
When you are approaching your goals today, step towards them with a purpose. Hit life hard today by walking with power!
