this week's affirmation is…
i deserve empowerment, je mérite d’être responsabilisé
empowerment is the process of gaining the knowledge, skills, confidence, and resources to take control of your life and make choices that align with your goals and values
empowerment is -
making informed decisions that are in line with your authentic self
being mindful of your inner dialogue and replacing self-doubt with kindness and self-compassion
seeking out a supportive network of friends, family, mentors, or like-minded individuals who can encourage and uplift you on your journey
taking the initiative to make changes in your life, no matter how small, and learning from the setbacks along the way
prioritizing your physical and mental well-being
