Standing In Your Power

I stand in my power next to non-diary ice cream shops in NYC

If there is one thing I’ve learned in 2013, it is that there is something so beautiful when you stand in your power. Let me be clear-this is not me encouraging you to be aggressive. I think aggression is actually weakness because when one is aggressive they are operating out of fear.

Standing in your power is being effortlessly confident. This confidence is rooted in trusting yourself. There is no need for you to question your actions or thoughts. When you are in a state of trust, you hold your power with grace.

This is something I am still “dancing” with. I have always been one to question everything she does. I use to ask my mother over and over again to confirm my thoughts and actions. I’d beg my dad to tell me when I was sick because I’d be worried I was making it up. I feared my own self.

Only till recently have I felt whole within like nothing else can complete me. I’ve found that stream of consciousness writing has been a significant help for me to gain my own trust. When I feel like the world is falling apart around me or moving too fast and I can’t catch up, I word vomit my fears all over the pages of my journal till I erase the fear within my body.

I’ve discovered when I stand in my power, when I am nothing but love, I become this magnet of beauty. Everyone around me shows this unspoken respect. The so called “challenges” seem like fun opportunities. I am so whole in my power that there is nothing stopping me.

I stand in my power. Will you rise up and do the same?

    Wow. This relates to me so well. Tessa you are such an inspiration to me and my life….I’m just starting out in the blogging world but I actually have a couple posts scheduled that mention you. I hope that I can eventually do something similar to what you are doing.
