Victim or Victor!?

Have you ever struggled to turn something difficult into something empowering?

I was sitting with a friend the other day – and listening to a long list of struggles and it occured to me –

We have choices about the stories that we tell ourselves-

We can either see ourselves as victims of circumstance or
the heroines of our own drama. . .

A personal example is my recent divorce after 27+ years of marriage.
Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t all been flowers and rainbows, but I’d much rather be where I am today- with my own beautiful place, that’s free from antagonism and lies.  And the bonus is that in the process,  I’ve learned a boatload about myself- setting clear boundaries, how to be financially responsible, how to ask for and admit I need sometimes.

As a result, I’ve become a freedom fighter (and I imagine that you might be one too!?)

Reflecting back, here’s what stands out-
– Rememberting to ask “what lights me up?
– Finding my clear YES and my Hell NO (Hint: if it’s not a YES –  it’s a NO)
– And accepting that some days are just going to be difficult, to feel it and then remember
“why be unhappy if it can be remedied?” and “what is the use of being unhappy with what cannot be remedied?”

Each moment we are at choice- 
what we put in our bodies, who we hang out with and how we spend our time and
how we see ourselves.             

What story are you telling yourself?  Are you a victim or a victor?

If you’d like to shift that around- let’s talk.  Email me at Carrie@KeysToEmpowerment.com  to schedule  time to take your next steps to juicy aliveness and fearlessness.

I believe in you!

“Carrie takes travel to a whole other level.” M.C.

“If you are ready and willing to explore new vistas, both internally as well as externally, then Carrie Asuncion is your “tour guide”.  I recently had the privilege of being on a women’s retreat that she led in Bali, and thanks to Carrie, I made connections with others, had insights, and experiences that I never would have had on my own.  Her adventurous spirit helped me go well beyond my own limitations and I am very grateful to her for that.  She is strong, insightful, and unafraid, and that is a winning combination.”  E.B.

Power of Gratitude

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. Gratitude makes sense of our
past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”

~Melody Beattie

In this hustle bustle world that we live in, isn’t it interesting that when we pause to give thanks and express heartfelt appreciation that whatever we appreciate expands and shows up more frequently in our lives?

I was recently challenged by a particularly negative person. I was starting to get a little put off, until I shifted my attention to how grateful I am for this person- the unique gifts that they share with me and the world. Miraculously, as I felt greater appreciation, the other person became less of a bother. Have you ever noticed that whatever you focus on,
life mirrors back to you? The more I am grateful for my friends’ love and support, the more love and support I find reflected in my life.

Join me in asking- *”What am I grateful for today?”* And continue to ask
this question as a daily practice and watch to see what “miracles” happen
in your life.

Happy appreciating!
