As we continue along the way at Path of Positivity, we are celebrating Girl Power: women's empowerment, strength, confidence, independence, etc.
I truly think quiet strength is extremely underrated in our society. It seems the bigger the show, the more power someone has. However, the truth is we show the most strength and empowerment when we are quiet and simply get the job done without a lot of fanfare and hoopla!
I look at barrel racers for example. The racers with the best times are those who have the most uneventful (boring) rides! Same goes with most of the equestrian events. The perfect patterns go to the teams working together with the quiet controlled inner strength and confidence.
I know a firefighter who teaches the new cadets; one of the first thing he tells them is this, "Slow is correct. Correct is fast. Slow and thinking = fast." That is the sort of emergency responder I want acting on my behalf!
It is my goal to try to show inner strength, confidence, and power through thoughtful and peaceful interactions. It really is harder for me to slow down, be calm and peaceful, and then move forward; so it will show real strength and power if I can do it! ;)
