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
- 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.

Live LOVE Empowered Brought to you by Live Life Empowered By Nancy Gass 1. Dating (like dieting😉) does NOT work! Let’s face it. Dating, especially online dating, USUALLY does not work. Why?! Well, first of all, it is intentional. Love rarely happens...
Pictured above is me in 2007 when I had just completed a half-marathon and had spent my life dieting versus Present Day (refusing to diet EVER again). It would be nice to think that in this day and age, we have finally found effective means to help people get to...
