Generally I feel powerful through acts of creation. It might be making art, or cooking, or building something, drawing, or even creating a party or social situation that works out well. Planning something and having it come to fruition well. Or, sometimes, just standing up straight and taking in a deep breath and looking out at the world, I feel like a powerful part of life.

Right now I'm in the midst of an extended feeling of powerlessness. My own inability to take in a full-breath due to a lingering chest-cold, and the illness of my partner that I can do little to alleviate. These things make me feel powerless in themselves, and they also interfere with my doing the things that make me feel powerful, making for an unpleasant cycle.

Breaking through it and making acts of creation anyway, helps.
