What does the phrase “Live Powerfully by Choice” mean? Where does it come from? When I created this phrase, it was simply “Have a Powerful Day”. However, as time passed, I added to the phrase “Have a Powerful Day by Choice”.
The phrase implies that a person no longer has to settle for what life offers, but a person can place a demand upon the universe that manifests a return according to their expectation. The phrase originated from a life changing event that afforded me the opportunity to journey within myself. This journey required me to visit the compartmentalized areas of my soul that harbored the residue of pain, anger, and frustration that I had with others and with myself. In short, I had to choose life or death contingent upon the meditations of my heart.
So, to ensure that you have a healthy soul and a productive life, I have listed 3 life-changing ways to living powerfully by choice…
Discover, Pursue, and Manifest Your Purpose. You were created with purpose in mind. You were created to reflect strength and to legislate positive change.
Declutter your Soul. The soul suppresses, relives, and harbors life experiences - whether good or bad. Those “bad” experiences, if not dealt with, distort a person’s perception of life and others ultimately creating a cesspool for bitterness.
Choose to be Optimistic. The ability to be humanly optimistic and Infinitely inspired is an exercise of a person’s will. Life will bring challenges, however, the extent of the detriment whereby the challenge impacts us is in the power of a person’s thought. A person’s thoughts will either inhibit or propel their destiny.
“Until you discover, pursue, and manifest your purpose, you are lost to self.” - CAM

I am writing this letter to you as an expression of gratitude. I am grateful for being entrusted the responsibility of rearing you and for being chosen to serve as your father. You are a like a delicate, beautiful flower that emits a distinct aroma designed by the Creator exclusively for you. You were created with such intricate detail to be reflected in your spirit, soul, and body that all of nature awaits your evolution from princess to queen.
Though daunting at times, rearing you was as much about my development as it was yours. You see, as your father, I have to tend to the garden of your soul ensuring that the seeds of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding take root and supersede weeds from deceptive people. As a steward, I relinquish ownership while humbly standing watch over your dreams and visions as if they are my own - teaching you to speak from your spirit not situation. As your coach, I seek counsel on how to relate to your indecisiveness while not interpreting it as immaturity but as an opportunity to share a life lesson with your eager and free spirit.
Yes, I thought of you today. I thought of how you went from “babbler” to an articulate young lady, from “wobbly knees” to walking among women of class, and how your faith, vision, and determination drive you to fulfill your created purpose.
