Here at Allies of Skin, we believe in power. We believe that it is everyone's birthright to feel great in their own skin. When you feel good about yourself, you feel like you can take on the world. Power is something we all have; more than we think we do. The thing about this power we have is that it is generated from our core; the center of our being. Sometimes we give out power quicker than we can regenerate. We can give power to everything: people, thoughts, events and situations.
Many times, we find ourselves depleted because nothing is left. We have given it all out. Amy Cuddy shares in her brilliant TED Talk, Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are, that believing is half the battle won. Instead of giving fear, inadequacy and self-perceived lack drive you further into yourself, save some of the power that you give away so easily for yourself. Watch the video for her take on the best way to fake it till you become it.
Maya Angelou said it best when she said 'You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them'. Just know that nothing can define you unless you allow it to. For more inspirational quotes from all allies we love, follow us on Instagram @Alliesofskin.
