This blog is created to encourage, equip and build up young people to ensure that they know their worth.
It is also a beneficial aid for those who support them.
Natalie Tomlinson expertly delivers motivational speaking which is not only motivational and informative, but leaves people attending her seminars feeling extremely empowered and enlightened.
Workshops facilitated by Natalie are highly informative and very interactive.
Natalie's passion for teaching young ladies & men to value and respect their true worth and covering topics that many professionals tend to avoid, means that not only do participants find her workshops and seminars extremely engaging, but also very thought provoking.
Natalie uses valuable information and eye-opening stories about today's youth and their culture to show them how to succeed in life. Young people will learn the importance of having self-respect and how to boost their own self-esteem. They'll walk away with a new attitude and the sense that no matter what their past, it's not too late to make positive changes.
How many times have you given your power away?
Think about the times that you have allowed other people to wind you up so much that you blew your top.
When someone comes to you telling you some foolishness that someone else apparently said about you, which isn't even true, you have the power to decide how you will react. You can choose to get angry or you can decide that you will not waste your time entertaining the foolishness. Nobody should have the power to spoil your day!
Did you know that when you make excuses and blame other people, you are actually giving your power away?
When we blame others for the things that we are going through, we avoid responsibility and therefore perpetuate the problem.
Think about this carefully: If you allow your life fall apart because of something someone else did, you are CHOOSING to do that. It's up to you to learn from your experiences and grow.
Right now, I want you to say the following sentences out loud: (Read them first and only say them if you agree with it as they are declarations).
I forgive those who have harmed me in my past and peacefully detach from them!
My obstacles are moving out of my way; my path is carved towards greatness!
I choose to love and appreciate myself!
To those who have already taken their power back from others and those who, after
reading this, make the decision to do so, I salute you!
You are more valuable than words can describe!
Why should anyone have more power over your life than you?
If you were passionate about something you done and because someone always found a fault with it you stopped doing it, take your power back today and start doing it again.
If you used to wear clothes that you liked (and looked on good on you) but stopped because others had a lot to say about it, take your power back and wear what you want.
Don't let ANYBODY take your smile!

Acts jealous or possessive or constantly accuses you of being unfaithful
Gets angry when drinking alcohol or using drugs
Threatens you with violence or a weapon
Hits, kicks, shoves, slaps, chokes or otherwise hurts you, your children or your pets

Portrays the violence as mutual and consensual
Rape is a type of sexual assault usually involving sexual intercourse, which is initiated by one or more persons against another person without that person's consent. The act may be carried out by physical force, coercion, abuse of authority or against a person who is incapable of valid consent, such as one who is unconscious, incapacitated, or below the legal age of consent.
The term rape is sometimes used interchangeably with the term sexual assault.
Observe your thoughts consistently!
Think about what you really want your life to be like. Do you want to:
Go back to school and study something of special interest to
Enhance your talents in some way?
Do a certain kind of work?
Have a different home space or to own your home?
Move to the country or the city?
Make your own decisions about treatment?
Become more physically active?
Lose or gain weight?

Who Has the Power Now?.......... YOU Do!
Allowing yourself to accept that you did nothing wrong, that you could not have changed the abuser or the circumstance of the abuse and did not deserve it, is the first step.
It's easy to say the things we all do at times like "how could I have been so stupid?" etc. But you need to forgive yourself for blaming yourself and loving the wrong person.
This week, focus on the things that you need to work on and do not give your power away.
Think about the things you started doing and stopped. Then, remember why you started and continue.
There is more to you than you can comprehend.
There will always be people with issues who will try to make you feel inferior to them, but take them on board. Remove yourself from people like them because they mean you no good!
