Wellness Wednesday




Confidence and empowerment are cousins in my opinion. Empowerment comes from within and typically it’s stemmed and fostered by self-assurance. To feel empowered is to feel free and that’s when people do their best work. You can’t fake confidence or empowerment.    ~Amy Jo Martin

There comes a time in everyone’s life when accepting and acknowledging the the harsh truths of your life can only be a benefit to you. Some people learn these truths early on while others will stumble upon them in their own time. Regardless of when you learn them, understanding them and embracing them will ultimately give you more power and control in life.


4 harsh, but empowering, truths:

No one is ever actually too busy to respond to you – You know that person you always text and feel like you only hear back from them at certain times or when it’s convenient for them? They’d like you to think that they’re doing important things that don’t allow them time to reply, but they really do. If you find yourself constantly waiting for a response on the other side of things, then you know you’re not a priority to them. The sooner you realise this the sooner you can move onto spending the time and effort on people who matter.


Everyone is always looking out for #1 – Regardless of how much a person comes off as sincere, genuine or generous, more often than not they’re still always looking out for themselves first, everyone else second. Everyone should always be aware of their needs and you most definitely should be more aware or yours.

The world doesn’t owe you anything – Possibly one of the most powerful truths of all. You could be the most powerful, beautiful, intelligent and caring person on the planet, but if you do nothing with what you’ve got, you will get nothing in return. Never expect people to do things for you or that things will come to you. Just know that there are two options you have when it comes to this: spend your life jaded, feeling entitled to things you don’t have, or you can work hard for yourself and create the life you want.


Actions speak louder than thoughts or words – The reality that we live in can be an unfortunate truth for some while being a miraculous gift for others; how we view the world around us says a lot about the actions we take. Fantasising about a better world is fine, but at the end of the day all you’re doing is thinking to yourself. Define yourself through the action you take, not the action you do not take.

    1. I’ve had the same problem a few weeks ago in trying to follow a few people on here. Not sure if it’s a bug, or something in the settings. But I’ve had several followers since then, also got a notification that you’re following now.
