The Power You Possess

I certainly hope 2013 has started off right for everyone. More importantly, I hope you took my advice and decided not to set "resolutions;" for those who did, I hope you managed to stick to them.

In the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. day, I want to talk about power. He was a man who lived in an era of inequality, and paid for the beliefs and convictions regarding the love of his people, and humanity in general, with his life. He was a powerful man, because during his struggles, and carrying the weight of a race of people on his shoulders, he stood steadfast in his belief of non-violence as a means to bring about change. Part of his gift was being a great orator. He persuaded and inspired with his words.

We often look at others that hold certain positions as being powerful, but rarely do we look at the power we all possess as equivoke. All the mothers in the world are powerful, because something so natural as giving birth literally is powerful. Take the time to think about the fact that women nurture and provide sustenance in order for a child(ren) to grow and maintain its health while within the womb. Needless to say the process of childbirth in itself requires a certain inner strength, that makes me want to faint each time I think about it. Additionally, it has been scientifically proven that mothers inherit double strength when it comes to protecting their children in times of danger.

Gifts, talents, words, nuturing- all individuals are better at something than others, and it is a matter of finding out what that power is, honing it and sharing it with the world.  Molding it and making it profitable, or using it to uplift.

While we celebrate the life and legacy of a great man, take the time to acknowledge the power within you, and how you inspire others as well. Hone into your greatness and use it to the best of your ability.
