I wouldn't call myself the most assertive person in the world. I'll engage in a confrontation, but only when pushed to the limit. There are a few things, though, that make me feel like I am a woman to be reckoned with.
Mowing the lawn. The lawnmower is the closest thing to a deadly weapon I'm willing to operate. The fact that I know how to maintain it, and that I get sweaty while Dominating the Lawn with it, makes me feel strong and capable.
Shopping by myself. So I'm not exactly Calamity Jane. But there's just something empowering about going out on my own as an informed consumer. Also, buying stuff is fun.
Solo airline travel. Bonus points for wearing a cute but practical outfit and maintaining a cool demeanor.
What makes you feel powerful?
