Co-NNections Weekly Readings

Owning My Power
 
I own my power when I am clear with my boundaries, when I take full responsibility for my part and don’t take any responsibility for someone else's part. 
 
I own my power when I use the words "I", "I want", "I will", "I can", "Will you help me with ...?"
 
I own my power when I let go of someone and sincerely wish them all the best. 
 
I own my power when I say "No, I can't do it this way. How about doing it this other way?" 
 
I own my power when I fully embrace my feelings and sit with it, comforting myself with loving words. 
 
I own my power when I say "Yes", knowing that "Yes" is my true answer without hesitation. The power comes from knowing exactly what I want. 
 
I own my power when I apologise and make amends for my mistakes readily and sincerely, but without crawling before anyone. 
 
I own my power when I face my biggest fears. 
 
I own my power when I choose not to blame others for my feelings and difficulties. 
 
It feels great when I own my power. It's a solid feeling.
