Power?

 My power was taken away from me when I was a child and this followed me into adulthood.  So what I'm thinking is, where is my power?  Where did it go?  I don't know where to find it?  If I have any, how do I know what it is?  What does it look and feel like? 

Firstly, I know what no power feels like,I experience this on a daily basis. so if I flip this coin it would look like the opposite.

Today, I will attempt to utilise this elusive thing called POWER!!!

1.  I'm gonna try and assert my right to say no.

2.  I want to feel as though I,m being listened to

3.  If I can experience 1 and 2 then Im on the right tracks to finding my power.

4.  My search continues.....
