Don’t Give Away Your Power

Friday slipped by me like a ripple in a pond.

Feather 2

You know someone who is different and want to know why?

Maybe it’s in their looks? Or the way they act?

* * *
No, nothing like that. It’s something good actually. And I want it. Whatever IT is.

* * *
Why?

* * *
Well, he must have some kinda secret. I mean, how else could a person never come undone. I’m serious here. He is always so cool … in a calm sorta way.

* * *
That’s because he has power.

* * *
See, I knew it.

* * *
It’s okay, you have it too. Here’s how it works:

•    You can’t control what someone else says or does
•    You can control how you react
•    If you come undone, you give them control
•    You are weak, they are strong
•    You have given them your power

Let’s change this:

•    Someone does something cruel
•    You ignore the hateful act
•    You have kept control
•    You stayed calm, left them helpless
•    You did not give them your power

This takes practice. Yet, in time it will change you. Then…

You are the one who has IT.
