Top Ten List for Empowering Girls

So what does empowerment mean?  The message is the same for all girls.  This is a Top 10 list for securing girl power.

Step 1:  Believe in yourself.  
"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent." -Eleanor Roosevelt
You are loved for who you are, not what you do, what you look like or how many instagram friends you have!

Step 2:  Follow your dreams.
Have dreams for yourself and work hard to make those dreams come true.  If hard work is not enough, then fight for it.  

Step 3:  Laugh often.  Cry when needed.  
Laughter warms the heart, a good cry releases the pain.

Step 4:  Love much.
Love heals all.  1 Corinthians 13:7-8 “Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  Love never fails.”

Step 5:  Value your brain and your heart.
Think before you speak, you will gain more respect with a well thought out opinion.  Speak from your heart, what you say will be forgotten but the way you make someone feel never will.  Pursue a passion.

Step 6:  Don't judge others.
Never put your energy into judging another but rather into being a good example for them to be.

Step 7:  Stand up for what is Right.
The greatest things were not achieved by following the crowd but from leading one.  Do what you believe is right and never falter to the pressures of others beliefs.  Identify the values most important to you, then stick to them.

Step 8:  Always lend a helping hand.
Live your life with purpose and give purpose to your life.  Never turn a blind eye to someone in need.  Go out of your way daily to make a person smile.  

Step 9:  Never break a promise.
Never give your word if you can't keep it.  Breaking ones trust is the hardest thing to rebuild.

Step 10:  See the world, take care of it.
See the world.  Savor in it's beauty.  Enjoy life.
