“Rock bottom became the solid foundations on which I rebuilt my life.”
– J K Rowling.
This week saw us celebrating International Women’s Day… Always a powerful day, a day of empowerment, solidarity and worldwide displays and acknowledgement of awesome female strength. We celebrate each other, cheering for one another’s victories and showing compassion and oneness in the face of ongoing adversity.
In the spirit of this most special of days, we are encouraging you to bask in your own strength and resilience. Be a champion of yourself and marvel at your power and ability to overcome. It’s all to easy to focus on our self doubt and get stuck in a habitual loop of beating ourselves up or feeling powerless. Well that stops right here!
Next time you feel yourself slipping into a bit of a downward spiral or feeling dis-empowered, we have an exercise for you to regain control and feel like the superhero that you are… Here’s Claire to explain a little more…
Do not listen to the negative chatter in your head telling you that you aren’t good enough or strong enough or that you can’t cope. You have overcome so many battles and you will continue to rise above. Believe in yourself and your resilience and keep fighting the good fight.
Take time to reflect, often, on how far you have come and give yourself credit for getting so far. You are a tough cookie and that deserves some acknowledgement.
Three cheers for being a woman!!!
