Learning new things has always intrigued me, as a child I was so curious and wanted to know the ins and outs of everything. I was like a sponge, I would soak up all of this information and learn constantly.
However; as I grew into a teenager, the internet came alive. I would spend hours upon hours, researching and finding new information all the time, it was quite frustrating though with only dial up internet, sitting there waiting for the dial up tone to finish. Do you remember those days? 🤦🏼♀️
Anyhoo, times have changed greatly and my need to gain new knowledge, has not left me, so having google at the touch of a button is flipping awesome 😆
I do remember a time though, when my brain was frazzled. I couldn’t take anymore in. Life had been particularly difficult and burn out had consumed me. I genuinely thought in that moment, that my willingness to learn new things would be gone forever. Just picking up the phone was difficult, I didn’t want to see anyone, hear from anyone, and I had nothing left in me. I was an empty soul.
I was so pleased that after a while I started looking for information to help me understand what was going on for me. This is when I was guided to the FREEDOM PROJECT run by women’s aid. I wasn’t just suffering from burn out. I was finally safe enough to start the recovery / healing process from domestic abuse. As my body relaxed, the recovery process for trauma had pulled me to a complete stop.
As I explored the abuse in more detail, it all suddenly made sense to me. I had to really dig deep into my healing to help me move out of this phase. So my journey began, and to this day, I’m still researching daily and my willingness to learn has become a daily activity again.
The difference now, is I’m not always going to google, I now go to my journal and continue to discover more about myself, my life, my relationships, and this is where I found peace within that I’m not alone. The journey I have been on is not an isolated thing. Thousands of people have suffered, but not many recover the way I did.
When you choose to empower yourself with knowledge you learn so much more about yourself than you realise.
Knowledge is your greatest asset. Whether that be in your career, personal development or hobby. The more research you do, the more empowered you will feel. The more empowered you are, the more knowledge and wisdom you gain. It’s a total win, win.
Surround yourself by those who are keen to learn, you will not only benefit from their knowledge and life experience you will also find you can help them too!
Be an empowered by woman by knowledge! Knowledge helps you grow personally, professionally, mentally and spiritually. It’s simply divine and majority of the time it’s FREE 🤩
Knowledge costs you time, but if you do it constructively it can also be a form of meditation, just like reading a good novel.
You don’t need to be afraid to learn more, it’s your divine right to grow, learn and develop the knowledge that feeds your brain and gives you hope 🦋
