The Empowered Traveler
- The Webster dictionary defines the word "empowered" as "to promote the self-actualization or influence of."
- The Webster dictionary defines the word "traveler" as "one who goes on a trip or a journey."
My definition of empowerment: "Empowerment is understanding that we exert power in the simple and complex choices we make each day. Furthermore, it is the realization that through our choices, we can create the life we want to live."
My goal with this website - and my life in general - is to demonstrate that we all have the power to create the life we desire, even in the face of tremendous adversity. We can either bounce from one external influence to another (such as job, living condition, relationship, etc.) or we can actively choose how we want our life to be. I choose to create a life that I desire!
Two of my passions are travel (and the ancillary, talking about travel) and discussing the importance of empowerment. I will be adding more to this website so please check back. I'm also working on writing a book. Topic will include: embracing the power of our choices, wants versus needs, understanding our motivations and how to live with almost no regret, the immense power of positive self-talk, and more.
