Your self-worth has nothing to do with your craft or calling, and everything to do with how you treat yourself. Kris Carr
What is your worth?
How many of YOU are there in the world?
How good were your grades in school?
What do you do for work?
How much money do you earn?
Is this really a definition of who you are?
There are so many things in your life that make you who you are. The way you answer the phone when your friend calls you, the way you make a sandwich for your child, the way you fill the kettle after making tea or coffee at work so others can have some too.
All these little things that you do for yourself and for other people are the important things! Society has got things the wrong way round – any one can study hard and get good grades, bun not every one is inventing space ships or worrying about their sick pet while in class. Simple examples yes, but without those unique, nu-noticed things that we do, we would not have a society at all!
We are a collection of very unique individuals working together to move our selves, our family, our work, our culture, our country and our planet forward. Everything is based on you, your world view, your response, your decisions and your inputs. Your education and conditioned interactions with others is designed specifically to make you useful to the collective, but with out your individual interpretation, understanding and application of that education or enculturation, there would not be a collective at all, there would be boring monotony going no where and achieving nothing.
You the individual are valueless and priceless. Your ideas and inputs to your world are totally unique in that moment and can not be copied or replicated efficiently.
Next time you feel small and inadequate because you feel as if you don’t know enough, or earn enough or what ever it is, take a deep breath and remember that you are YOU, perfect, whole and complete as you are, and no one can ever judge you for that or take that away from you.
Go out this week and be who you need to be for you!
