Self-Empowerment Lessons from Miley's Grammy Performance

Self-Empowerment Lessons from Miley's Grammy Performance

Ever find yourself hiding behind self-deprecating humor just to fit in?

This used to be my default mode which is why I absolutely loved witnessing Miley Cyrus's Grammy-winning performance exuding unapologetic self-acceptance, and it was pure magic.

Miley Cyrus belted out those empowering lyrics during her recent Grammy-winning performance. Did you catch it? If not, let me paint the picture for you.

But first, let me share a quick story of how my "brilliant" plan to make other people like me backfired majorly.

"She thinks she's cute..." Four words I shuddered to hear when I was a little girl. I never wanted anyone to ever think I thought highly of myself in any way. So I learned to put myself down to be likable. It worked. I thought I was brilliant. All I had to do was point out flaws and make jokes about myself, and people would like me and think I'm cool. The problem was years of negative self-talk can wreak havoc on your self-esteem.

I don't recommend it. I recommend Miley's mentality.

Miley's Grammy performance of "Flowers" wasn't just about the music—it was a full-blown celebration of self-empowerment. And let me tell you, I found myself developing a bit of a girl crush right then and there.

Now, I'll be honest, I was pretty neutral about Miley before this. But as she danced across the stage with Tina Turner-esque moves, radiated confidence, openly celebrated her first Grammy win, unapologetically, and had a blast while doing it—it hit me. Her authenticity. Her sheer comfort in her own skin. Her infectious joy in simply being herself. I admired it. Wish I had more of it and I was here for it all.

Miley Challenge
I want that feeling for everyone. I want you to have your own Miley moment. To experience that same level of self-acceptance, that unwavering confidence, and that unstoppable empowerment every single day.

She showed us the blueprint for being our own valentine—embracing who we are, flaws and all, with complete authenticity and zero apologies.

So here's to each of us channeling our inner Miley and tapping into the magic that lies within ourselves.

Enjoy Miley's Grammy performance

Sending you all the good vibes,
