Your power, your growth, your choice

On one of the lowest days of my life, when I was surrounded by used tissues and all of the reasons for why my life didn’t have a purpose, I experienced something that has stopped me from falling that low again.

I realized that I was the one chaining myself to those days of hopelessness.

No one was there telling me, there’s no hope for you.

I was the one coming up with all of the excuses to continue being Miserable with a capital M.

That realization helped me understand that you have so much power to change your life story.

Reclaim your power

There’s a sense of powerlessness that exists when you feel trapped by your current reality.

Even though there are always going to be things that are out of your control, there are so many things that are in your hands.

Start by making the next best choice that takes you closer to the life that you truly want to live

To live with more joy, to live with more hope, start by reclaiming your power. You have the power to choose, to act, to have a say.

Choose growth

There will always be something that will stop you from experiencing self growth: your ego, your failures, your mistakes, your past, your current circumstances.

When you donโ€™t choose growth, you stay stuck, lessons repeat themselves, you experience frustration or unhappiness.

When you choose growth, you see situations through a new perspective. You gain wisdom. You gain freedom. You let go of fear, of limiting beliefs. You return back to a place of love that is without judgement, a place of compassion.

Try again

When a problem appears out of nowhere, when there are changes to adapt to, when nothing is working out, try again.

If you feel yourself coming up with excuses, remember the following quote:

The time is always right to do what is right.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Now is always the perfect time to try again, to come up with a solution, to pick yourself up, to adapt, to change.


When you believe in your power, when you keep wisdom in mind, and when you give yourself the opportunity to try again, life lightens and brightens. You become the key to your hope.

  1. Great post, Andrea! ๐Ÿ™‚

    One of my keywords has to do with Power… spoiler alert: my little sister suggesed “Restoration” for me for 2020, and so one of my keywords is going to be about restoring my power… that’s so in alignment with your “reclaiming” power!!!

    Thank you for your positive vibes, girl… I especially liked “life lightens and brightens”! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hope you are enjoying a wonderful New Year’s Eve, my friend… โค

    1. Thank you, Teja! ๐Ÿ™‚ Your keyword is beautiful! You’re so welcome for the positive vibes! You know what? When I wrote that phrase I was going to write “lighten up and brighten up” and thought of you! I’ve been feeling this theme of “stepping up and rising up” lately, too. Wishing you a beautiful, powerful, & radiant start of the year, my friend โค๏ธ

      1. Wow, Andrea, now I have chills because one of my other keywords for 2020 is going to be “Rise” and here you wrote “rising up”… Great minds think alike, eh?! (And, I admit I was influenced by the title of the new Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker!)

        I love it that you thought of me with “lighten up and brighten up”… ๐Ÿ™‚

        Wishing you beauty, power, and radiance also! ~ Happy New Year!

        With much gratitude and love,
        Teja โค

        With StarFire love,
