I came to me late in life (not THAT late, just 29 years late) the realization that we possess hidden powers we could summon any minute of everyday.
Here are some magics powers you could use:
1. ASSERT YOUR RIGHT
I got a poor service from a photograph studio, giving me a wrong background color to what I specified. Usually, I would timidly just keep the picture and pay for another picture in another studio. But this time, I went back to the studio, told them politely that I want a refund for my money because I gave them specific instructions before I had my picture taken. I walk in there knowing my rights as a consumer. And I too was shocked when I got back my money without any hitch.
2. MAKE A WAY
I was getting back on my feet after a cash meltdown by having garage sale,
taking on ‘rakets’& moonlighting jobs and selling my mom’s old catalogues & cookbooks to aspiring dressmakers & cooks.
3. DREAM BIG
If I wasn’t a doctor, I would love to be a social worker and be part of an organization that focus on helping young women. It’s nice to dream about it and another to make moves to make it into a reality. I came to hear this org and I got excited. Bursting with enthusiasm, I wrote a letter to the president of the organization, volunteering my help. I didn’t know if they would respond but in a few days, I received a reply and setting up a meeting… Fabulous, isn’t it? Next stop… A non-violent, greener world…..
I could stress enough the power of a smile. Even Mother Teresa is an advocate of smiles because she knows the power in a smile. Friendships start from a smile. It also could lift up a day of someone even a random stranger. A positive outlook and enthusiasm is infectious. So, smile and better yet, laugh. Because laughter is a perfection of a smile.
Prayer could move mountains, my mama said. And she was right. If you allow the Higher Power to work in your life, amazing & beautiful things unfold in your life that would let you say, “Ei, isn’t just life delightful?”.
