How I have Found to be Satisfied in Life

Posted by Second Chance to Live on January 31, 2013

Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. Thank you for deciding to stop by to visit with me. Several days ago I made a decision to take some action about some thing that I wanted to set in motion to accomplish. I decided to make my screen name born2EmPWR, as that is what I am seeking to do through my life with my mission and vision.

Roughly, about 8 years ago I did a pretty thorough study on the subject of empowerment. As I thought about my screen name I decided that to revisit the study that I had done on the subject of empowerment. As I began reading in the binder of material that I drafted on the topic, some thing I had written during my study 8 years ago caught my attention. I would like to share that with you.

And I wrote, “In looking at the word satisfy, the definition asserts “to be adequate.” This definition implies that to be satisfied is to feel adequate.” As I thought about what I had written I saw the correlation between being satisfied and being adequate. Being adequate conveys being enough. If I am enough, I have nothing to prove to be able to be satisfied in / with my life.

Consequently, I can be content or satisfied with where I am at in my life. I can be content and satisfied in my life by recognizing that I am in process and that I am committed to learning. I can be satisfied and content with my life by recognizing that my efforts are good enough. I can be content and satisfied with my life by trusting the process, a loving God and myself.

Through being content and satisfied with my life, I am empowered.

Our circumstances are not meant to keep us down, but they are meant to build us up!

In the event that you would like to be in touch with me, please use my Contact Page. I look forward to hearing from you. All questions are good questions.
