What an Empowered Woman Looks Like
By Flora Sofia
It’s Thursday evening, you have just walked into a room full of people greeting each other, being introduced, and networking. It’s a room full of life and you are thrilled to be there because it supports your cause of choice. Through the whole night there is one thing that you (and the rest of the room) can’t help but notice: she is the most popular woman in the room.
There is this lady who has shown up with barely any makeup on, is dressed simply, people seem to be naturally drawn to, and has that serene look on her face; but you can’t put a finger on what it is about her. Intrigued yet? Well, this is one version of what an empowered woman looks like.
An empowered woman places little importance in competing with other women because she knows who she is. She intimately knows her worth, her values, the impact she makes, and her purpose. She is guided by that, as well as by how she leads her life and how she carries herself out in the world. The empowered woman knows all there is to know about her and what she is capable of – the positive and the negative – and how what she does impacts everything and everyone around her. Although she knows both sides of herself, her choice is to be in positivity. Once there, not only can she enjoy a higher level of life, but she can also bring people up along with her.
Her body: this is the temple of her soul and it is sacred to her. She uses it and does it well through dance, sports, and/or other physical activities. She feeds it high quality foods that will make it stronger, more energized, and more attractive. She shares it with only those who have shown to her that they care about what’s inside her.
Her mind: where she dreams and has ideas and where she creates her future. She keeps it sound and free of negative thoughts as much as possible and she dedicates time to clean up the old gunk, as needed.
Her heart: it’s the most precious thing; where she keeps those dear to her, where she shares from and where she resorts to in order to find out what makes her who she is.
Her soul: it’s her direct connection with the divine. It’s the everlasting essence of her, which is the very essence of her Creator; therefore, it’s what makes them One.
She is in her power and knows that her utmost priority is to belong and be happy with herself (body, mind, heart, and soul) because that is where her greatness and beauty stems from. Fulfilled and joyful, the empowered woman takes pride and is delighted to be the mother, sister, daughter, wife, lover, professional, role model she is to those in her life and to the world.
The empowered woman is mindful of how she thinks and how she treats others; her mission is to encourage those around her to ascend and reach their greatness. She will never leave someone bent out of shape. When she shows up it’s to make matters better.
And the evening ends with the actualization of the day’s realization.
When you spot the empowered woman, say hello. She is a living expression of the Creator. And so are you. Maybe you and she are the same.
