*8 Things – Standing in Your Own Power

My thanks to Magpie Girl for today’s *8 Things meme.  I don’t think I can keep it to only 8 things that I want to remind myself of, or to offer to others, so here are 8 Things I know about standing in your own power, plus maybe a few extra – a few of them cribbed from / credited to others:

  1. Everything changes form eventually – the only constant is love, so keep a soft heart.
  2. Gravity and conventional wisdom both go “that” way, but you don’t always have to follow either one of them.
  3. Put hope out there for the world to see and taste.
  4. Pain is merely a message that it’s time to pay attention.
  5. Trust your instincts and speak your truth – this includes admitting mistakes.
  6. Dwell in possibility.
  7. Breathe.
  8. Play.
  9. If you’re going through hell, keep going. –Churchill
  10. Dance, when you’re broken open.
    Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off.
    Dance in the middle of the fighting.
    Dance in your blood.
    Dance, when you’re perfectly free.
    –Rumi
