Welcome to Empowered By Nikola!

Empowered by Nikola is a metaphor reflecting my desire to light up and empower life as Nikola Tesla powered and lit up the Chicago World’s Fair in 1893. Not literally of course, but figuratively and through the channels of love, faith, hope, logic and experience. It is the light of the eternal love of my late husband that continues to course through my veins like electricity, illuminating my heart in a powerful way.

My writing is about my own struggles through different aspects of life, including:

  • Weight Loss and Wellness
  • Fitness and Self-Care
  • Self-Confidence
  • Love and Loss
  • Mindfulness and Minimalism
  • Goals and Motivation
  • Energy and Stress management

Life is hard and our souls are an ever-changing constitution of light and darkness. I do not pretend that I am free of darkness. I come from the light portion of my soul with the goal of illuminating the darkness with hope. When you reach for your goals, they feel as distant as the stars in the sky; but it is an illusion. They are already in the palm of your hand. Likewise, when you feel your soul is blanketed in darkness, look for the sliver of light that peaks through the cracks; when you see it, set your eyes on it and give it all your attention. Watch the light grow. The light will overcome the darkness.​

I want to live fully and honestly, always prioritizing truth, joy, fun, LAUGHTER, lightheartedness, simple living, the PEACE OF QUIET, real conversations, daring adventures, never-ending curiosity, uncontrollable affection, FACE-WRINKLING SMILES, strong hugs, passionate kisses, and EYES THAT SPARKLE. These are the things I wish for us all.

Love Always,

Nikola Rosa

Control

Control

Are you a controlling person? I am a control-freak! It is an issue. I am aware of it though and of course, admitting there is a problem is the first step. Awareness. The sad reality is that the more I try to control something, the less likely it seems to go my way....

Nikola Rosa is an artistic rendering of the soul that has come to exist after rising from the ashes. Her thoughts are from Nancy Gass, and yet they are in some ways, a different person entirely. We all have hearts and souls that are a deep ocean of complexity and this dichotomy is no different.
