Do you know who you are? Do you do things because you think you should or it is what everyone wants you to do?  

In order to experience a sense of empowerment and calm in your life, it is imperative to know who you are.

That process can be an uncomfortable one as you go through the journey of letting go of disappointments, choosing to forgive (yourself or someone else), or taking the first step toward something you have always wanted to accomplish.

The series of events in your life have been working to make you who you are. Learn from them and then move on. Being your authentic self is one of the single most gratifying experiences you will ever have.

Don’t allow life’s circumstances to defeat you. In this moment, focus on the fact that what is happening around you is temporary.

Take a deep breath and focus on one thing for which you are thankful. That is the first step to rising above difficult times and becoming the authentic person you are meant to be.
