(From a journal entry dated 26 January 2005)
To own our power is to take responsibility for the ways in which our lives impact others. We exercise power over people daily, but we don't always own up to that power. We cannot move through the world without causing a few waves. We can however choose to move through the world in a way that causes mostly soothing ripples. Or you can become the tsunami that leaves misery and devastation in its wake. A gentle touch and a light step will carry you farther down the path towards your life purpose. It will also leave you with fewer regrets.
