Happy Monday and welcome to what I hope is the beginning of Spring (I really really hope). I say this as if I am not waking up to yet another snow shower.
Today is going to be all about the acknowledgment of your self-worth and how important this concept is to your life. Have you ever looked at someone who you think the world of and see how little they think of themselves? Yes, you probably have and in the very rare chance that you haven’t, you can take this moment to live vicariously through me. Some of my favorite people in the whole world are (at times) filled with incredible amounts of doubt. They doubt their abilities, their worth, their decisions, and their future. Ironically when talking to my friend about this the other day, she replied with a simple “please girl, you do the same damn thing.” She’s right. Life is a collection of moments that are directly linked to emotions which will drag you through the trenches and flip you right back up into the clouds. How can one even keep up?
In reading up on self worth, I noticed that the most common trend was the idea that your self-worht does not sit inside the walls of your career, your relationships, your friendships, or even within the walls of your personal/professional success. Rather, self worth is a mere compilation of emotions, thoughts, judgments, and beliefs in who you are as a person. It is only within your own assessment of yourself can you really understand and accept the person you are. Trust me, if you dig down deep enough you will realize that you are fully aware of the ‘true you.’ You already know how smart/beautiful/kind/courageous/established/driven you are. While many of us may go through life thinking we need someone else in order to discover our self worth, we do not. What we need is the belief that we a so worth it.
Take that self-consciousness!
