“You must do the things you think you cannot do.”- Eleanor Roosevelt
Do you ever have that feeling of fear and you hesitate before taking a chance because you are worrying about what to do next? If you are feeling stuck, like you can’t figure out how to get to where you want to go and this voice in your head is preventing you from doing what you really want to do then it is time to take action. And you are in the exact right place to get started!
Girl ImPowered was started because I have had those voices, and fears many times. I totally get where you are and want you to know that you are not alone. This is your time to break out, discover how you can shine and feel comfortable being you. This is your time. You’ve got this!
Girl ImPowered Inspires Women of All Ages to Build Confidence, Stand Out and Take Action.
Meet Natalie Benamou
Everyone struggles with confidence. Even the most accomplished leaders hear that little negative voice in their head. I know you have one too, and it’s okay. It won’t determine your future. Only you can do that and I want to help.
Many times I have had self-doubt and I know right where you are. In 2008, I had a major head injury. I could barely form a sentence and lived knowing my brain was jumbled up and I couldn’t fix it. The thing to remember is that in those moments when we feel our lowest, is the time to find courage. You will too, and we are here for you.
I couldn’t remember anything after my accident, short term memory evaporated and all those precious times with my family were suddenly gone. I would look into by two daughters’ eyes when they would ask “Mom remember when…” and feel a total panic as I had nothing, just empty space with no recall.
Know this- you are not lost, you will find your way. I feel this is an absolute truth that lives in all of us.
As a mom, I have watched my girls face adversity and overcome it by finding their inner strength. This is the thing I want to pass on to you, no matter what other people tell you. The future, your best is yet to come.
You can start today by making small steps and a plan that will take you where you want to go. Don’t wait for perfection-it never happens. Get started. You Got This!
