Empowered

download (39)

We are empowered by our friends, online or offline, sometimes more then we are empowered by those who are a part of our biological family. Many times, our private little cheering section (or the friends who tell us like it really is) are what keep us from holding back, giving up, breaking down.

With that in mind, I want to take this opportunity to examine our own ability to be that cheering section, that encouraging, needed friend. A little act of kindness, and a moment to stop, and write a few encouraging words to someone who might not be a “friend” in a traditional sense, can mean the difference between a good day and a really bad one, or a devastating decision and the realization that there is hope.

The internet in particular can be a world filled with trolls and unkind voices. We can be different though, we can choose to be the empowering.

So I will challenge myself to be more of that person, who empowers, who sits in the cheering section, even if that cheering section might be in front of a laptop half across the world from you.

And I would love for you to join me!

Here are some bloggers who have inspired me today:
