You Are the Mayor of You

The moment you decide to take dominion over what happens to you

internally (regardless of the gunk and funk that can go on during a day)

you step into your rightful place as the Mayor of You-ville. The instant

you take office,Guest Posting you step up to the podium of your self-esteem and

personal power. Hey, when I say personal power, I'm not talking about

strutting through your life like a bad reality TV show diva. I'm talking

about simply claiming the capacity that is already yours.

Think about what it means to be the Mayor of You-ville. You are able

to speak up and set clear, healthy boundaries. (Even at work. Even with

your kids. Even with your in-laws.) You are able to keep your cool with

that creep from accounting. You are able to ask for what you want because

what the heck, you're the Mayor. Take a moment and drink it in. Connect

with what being in charge of you feels like inside your skin. Most people

feel a sense of expansiveness or serenity. What about you?

Go ahead. Stand up and feel what it's like to be Mayor. You might find yourself sashaying, or striding, or strolling. It seems that each Mayor has their own natural pace. And their own name. Folks have been the Captain of My Ship, the Goddess of My Temple, the Diva of Me, even the Magic Baker of My Town. What is yours? Sure, it may seem a little silly, but go for it. You are using parts of

yourself that you may not have visited since you turned eight. Is there a

tickle of happy in there? Let yourself find it.

Let's face it. You are and have always been the Mayor of Youville

anyway. You just may have abdicated—like the rest of us. The moment

you take office as The Boss, things can begin to change. The moment you

stop pretending that someone else has snatched the remote control of your

life, that's the moment your life transforms. How? You start choosing your

attitudes and your actions.

Even when you love someone more than life itself, you can't breathe

their air or digest their food. We aren't wired that way. No one but you can

assimilate the tuna melt sandwich you had for lunch. So too, no one but

you can choose your attitude. The moment you grasp that it's you, only

you, who can grant yourself authentic power, that's when you wake up.

You stop being an innocent bystander in your own life and start becoming

the co-creator of your days.
