1st of the Month Motivational: Know your WORTH


How much are you worth, a penny, a dime, a dollar coin, $1,000, a gazillion dollars, or an uncapped amount? 

"Don't be a nickle out here searching for a dime..", popular lyrics right now.  In reality, how many of us dimes, consider ourselves worthy of another dime?  How many of us are accepting change that doesn't equal up to a dime and hope that somewhere along the way we'll be able to magically make a dollar out of 15 cents ("a dime & a nickle", lol I couldn't help it)?

I'm not a relationship guru, so I wont narrow this to only relationships.  What we consider our worth to be, can determine our entire lives.

"We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?"

Why don't we consider ourselves worthy of positive affirmations?  Why don't we consider ourselves worthy of being treated like the queen or king that we are?  Who determines if we are KING, QUEEN, or PEASANT?  Is it our parents, our peers, our friends, our co-workers, our educational institutes, our backgrounds, or OURSELVES?
"What a man thinketh, so is he."

As the poem goes..."Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world."

You determine your worth.  How you project yourself is all that the rest of the world has to go on.  They can either love you or hate you, but they can't label you as they see fit, because you have already done that.  If you have not determined your worth, then its pretty much up for interpretation.  And the world is left to treat an object of unknown value, the best way that it knows how.

So I ask you, do you want to be treated as a person with a known value or a person of unknown value?  Do you want to set the grounds for how you are treated, or do you want to go through life "UP FOR INTERPRETATION" to anyone you meet?  Make a choice today!!  It will save you and the rest of the world a lot of time!

  1. This hit home in a lot of ways... I have been in now 2 relationships where I have felt like crap.. and 1 was wit a man and the other with a woman.. each time there was something that they did... "the little things" that made me feel unworthy... I was in luv with both of these people.. but its like a person will only do to you what u let them do. And that's what theywere doing... I have very very low self esteem but by the looks of it ypou would never think it.. but I have deep issues and I don't know how to get over them.. I guess only time will tell and time will heal.. but I've come to realize that until u luv ur self u will never be happy.. and I am learning to love myself more and more each day.. it doesn't matter wht others think of me but only what I think of myself.. I'm not going to settle for just what looks good anymore I need someone that's gonna make me feel good (in more ways that 1) (wink) so until I find that.. I'm won't settle.. its a hard process but.. I am starting to know my worth...

  2. I'm PRICELESS!.....but I'm not perfect. Everyone's main focus should be SELF because you are the only person that you have control over. All judgemental and opinionated ish is foolery because God is the only real judge but at the same time, the devil is always working! I feel the world is all messed up because people take so much time worrying about other people and what's going on in their lives but not trying to get their own life together and be in control over their own situations. Everyone should stay in your own lane, focus on you, and create happiness within yourself because 9 out of 10 people will steer you wrong everytime (sometimes you are all you got). I am priceless, not perfect but I am working on me....me and the MAN upstairs are in control so how everyone else perceives me is not even an issue.
