Empower Myself

Empower Myself

I am a full time wife (who adores her husband), mother of 3 (who cherishes her kids), instructor for a vocational school (who thinks the world of all her students) and has "let herself fall."

As much as I would like to blame it on the stresses of daily life, the constant battle with the "I will still control you" ex-husband and going in and out of court (it seems like on a bi-yearly basis), and the "I just don't have time excuse;" I realize that I have only myself to blame.

This year I would like to, as you put it, "empower myself" to be the kind of energetic person that I portray on the outside except that I want to feel that way on the inside as well.

I have found my niche in life when I became an instructor this past year but this year I would like to delve into some personal education. I would like to find the "me" balance. I think the "me" balance consists of finding out who I am when I find myself alone, of being able to focus on future studies (one of which is to teach other women to empower themselves), and to find the inner beauty that I know lies within when I look in the mirror.

I see so many people (most of which are women) who have "fallen" as well and I would like to let them know that they can get out of where they are at, but I know that I need to find that empowerment within myself to teach others how to do it for themselves. When women ask how do you do it, I will then have an honest answer instead of having the "typical" answer.

My biggest challenge this year is to find it in myself as well as in my body - to incorporate the mind, the body, and the spirit to do greater things now that I know that I can. I want to control my own destiny rather than giving others the power to control it for me.

And that is where you come in. I bought your bellydancing videos several years ago and they have gathered dust in the video cabinet. My first baby step was to dust the video off so that it looked brand new and pop it into the DVD player. The moves came back so quickly it was like riding a bicycle - you don't forget how to do it. Then your email came with the challenge and I felt it to be a sign that I am off to a good start. I am thankful for the Goddess Life emails and hope that in the support and ideas that you have to offer, I will find the person that got lost long ago.
