I apologize to those of you who have been following along as I always start these posts with a fast recap. So sorry but here it is. For those stopping by for the first time, for the past seven months I have been drawing a weekly Angel Card and writing what that word means to me. This week it was the word power.
When I first drew this card out, my gut reaction was somewhat negative. Associating power with control and not liking where that was taking me. On further mulling I realized neither word power or control should resonate as negatively for me. It is the action involved in power or control over someone or some event that can be negative not the word per say.
We all want power to make decisions and choices. The power to stand proud of our accomplishments, to speak our minds on issues we believe in and make choices (good, bad or indifferent). I think the word power is neutral. It is how we use that power in our speech and/or actions that make a positive or negative difference around us.
I am going for the word power being positive. I have the power to change – to grow in the direction I want. We can channel our power into positive pursuits. Where can we make a difference – be powerful for that one person or cause?
You can always start now!
