Part II: A Journey of Perspective
What Launches Us Forward: The Stable Foundation
Day 51: The Strong Foundation of Self-Worth
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
The strong foundation of self-worth ignites our souls to shine. It is what keeps our foundations intact from destruction. Our self-worth protects us from outside invasive species coming into our gardens. If we want to heal the world, we have to start with healing ourselves. We have to take responsibility for the dark energy we project out into the world because we are insecure with who we are and the fear of shining to our full capacity.
On this journey of transformation I invite you to shine, not through vanity or ego, but through true awareness that it doesn’t matter what ANYONE else thinks of you that you are WORTHY of living an AMAZING life. By the end of this journey my hope is that people will be able to look in the mirror and be overwhelmed with love and acceptance of the person looking back at her/him. When we accept ourselves fully for the entirety of who we are—WE ARE FREE! We become accountable for any and all energy that we project out, therefore we can do something empowered to change, shift, and grow as we feel the need to be and do better. We are in the classroom of life and the more we are open to learn, the more advanced we get in our skills. It takes work, time, practice, and participation. When we show up for ourselves, we gain control of our stories. We learn that we can write them however we choose to.
We can’t do any of that if we aren’t projecting our worth from the inside out! Otherwise, we allow others to have control over our stories. We won’t be able to set healthy boundaries. We will be searching for something outside of us to complete us do to our lack of worth. We won’t know what true empowerment is because it will come out as rage and darkness, not light and love. People will respond the opposite way that we demand. That is what happens when we demand that the world treat us better than we are treating ourselves.
Gaining self-worth is a process of liberation. We are taking our lives back by celebrating the skin we are in, the lessons we’ve learned, and the gifts we have to offer through our unique experiences. Enjoy the journey back to the source of the problem and the solution. We create our realities based on the perspectives of truth (Days 43-46) we choose and our openness to learn and grow from the lessons we are given. Our challenges have the ability to strengthen our self-worth or destroy it based on the perceptions we choose. NO ONE can FORCE you to make this choice. You have to commit to seeing your own worth if you want things inside and around you to change.
The strong foundation of self-worth not only will change our lives; we become walking examples of a healthier and more loving way to live. Our energy becomes contagious and we are able to give to the world from authentically loving place.
Don’t be surprised if you are building your self-worth up and someone comes along trying to tear it down. It’s part of the process of learning where you are on your journey. It is an answered prayer and a lesson. If you are new to the 90-Day A Better Me Series, I invite you to go back to the beginning and help strengthen your awareness so that you can spot the lessons as they come.
Just for Today
Commit to seeing your worth. Write a contract to yourself if you need to. Pray that you will find ways to strengthen your worth.
For all those embarking on this journey of establishing the strong foundation of self-worth, you will be challenged, but the rewards are GREAT! There is a lot of clean up of old beliefs along the way. As each old belief falls away, you become lighter. The outside chaos lessons and a peace stirs from within. Our reactions to outside triggers have less and less impact on our internal world. Welcome to the journey!
With Love and Gratitude,
