Empowerment circles are circles formed to empower each other in our lives. Every woman has a choice as to how she wants to live her life. She can sit back, wait for what she wants, complain when it doesn't happen and give up. OR . . she can stand up for what she wants and find a way to make it happen for herself.
She can be a victim. OR . . .she can be a co-creator of her life. Empowerment is about standing up for what you want in your life, having a dream, making it happen and holding your power in the world.
Remember the test of character isn't what happens when life is flowing with ease. Your character emerges when you are challenged.
In conflict, intimacy can deepen if you don't give up and walk away.
In pain, strength can emerge if you look for the gifts.
In grief, you can find many blessings if you choose to look hard enough.
In fear, you can find tremendous courage and a willingness to be alive, if you allow yourself to move through it.
