Someone told me to get my ish together today and immediately it stirred up something in me. I have heard this before a long time ago from Shanel Cooper-Sykes (the #1 life coach for women), and I felt the same butterflies in my stomach I felt years ago. It made me think about what I was doing wrong in my life and what type of life my Swwe21 blog readers might be aspiring to. How many of you can truly say you got your ish together? Am guessing not many, there’s still that thing you’ve being putting off that you need to do, thats why it is absolutely imperative I share this with you today. To get your ish together is a nice way of saying get your sh*t together. Ok so my life is not perfect and there is no shame in that, even celebrities have issues like mine, just like no one’s life is always rosy, no one’s life is always perfect, but learning how to exude control over certain things is a skill I think I need to develop! I think you can agree that I’ll be so much better as a person as soon as I have my work, life, and personal life all together, and am not saying, they are not, but probably not where I want it to be. So now is the time to sort it all out, not later.
I’ve always felt like something was missing, like my passions have evaded me. This has been a very serious problem for as long as I can remember, I don’t want to be remembered as predictable, but seriously, I am set in my ways. We need to break out of that comfort zone. Today’s challenge is for me to empower you to do something you’ve been putting off for a while, I will participate in this exercise too, it has has to be something no one is expecting of you, and I, lets break out of our comfort zone together. This Friday put on a nice outfit and go out for dinner, find out what is happening in your area and make an appearance. This is crucial for the start of your lifestyle change challenge, you are breaking barriers and preparing yourself for the life you want.
I feel like my life is made up of workout reps, after one set of 10 reps, there’s another set, and then another, then one more, and so on and so forth. I feel like I am always trying to make myself fit, fit for love, fit for friends, and fit for my dreams. I have honestly told myself that I must slay everyday this week, and get up and back on my grind when things don’t go quite as I predict, so do the same if you are feeling anxious about the coming week, wake up with me each day of the week, pray with me every morning and then of course, slay, we can slay together, if it involves sharing photos, I will. Yes that is empowerment right there. Out of a hundred things to consider when preparing for the week, I’ve picked three things specifically for my Swwe21 Blog readers.
When I hear people talk about empowerment, I think of the things I can do to give myself power. The Oxford dictionary calls it authority, or power being given to someone to do something. It can also be defined as the process of becoming stronger, and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. I don’t know how you feel, but I am sure, like me, you are tired of feeling like someone else is in control of your life. This is where I come in, I want to bring you a step by step guide to becoming empowered.
