Today's Inspiration: Empowerment
I just love my horoscope today! My friend Jersey often reminds me to "fake it 'til you make it" on those days when I am feeling gloomy and don't wanna get out of bed. She's almost always right: once I get moving, acting "as if" I'm positive and feeling strong, those very feelings will soon follow. The fact that I can control those feelings/emotions and how I respond to them. is incredibly empowering to me.

Leo Daily Horoscope
A sense of empowerment may surge through you today, helping you feel formidable when dealing with others. Even if you don't initially feel it, by projecting self-confidence and inner strength you will convince others. Since they are likely to take you seriously and act accordingly, you may begin to feel the confidence you had previously been only pretending to feel. Confidence and empowerment are mental choices, so you may have to convince yourself by acting as if you already posess the feelings you want to have. Today you are able to convince yourself and others of the truth of your confidence and inner strength.
Positive thinking, the use of affirmations, and our imaginations are powerful tools in building our dreams. When we spend time imagining how success feels, or the joy of sharing our abundance with loved ones, our mind begins to believe it. When we can convince our minds that such things are possible, we have made the first step in making them our reality. As with any energy, this works in the negative as well. This is why it is important to keep our thoughts positive. We have the same power to create and experience negative outcomes as positive ones; it is up to us. As cocreators of the universe and of our lives, we are truly formidable and powerful beings. Today as you affirm that truth and feel it deeply, you are able to convince yourself and others of your power over your happiness and success.
