Power doesn’t always shout,
confidence doesn’t always stride in and make itself known,
it sometimes treads lightly and is simply present.
Power isn’t always a shout or a scream,
sometimes it is just rising one morning and choking back a coffee.
Sometimes power is walking out of the door and never coming back again.
Occasionally power means protection, self-preservation.
Sometimes strength is withholding your power until the time is right,
sometimes it is nurturing it, letting it grow – in comfort and in quiet.
Sometimes strength is just waiting it out.
