It is easy to get caught up in the media blitz, opinions of others, and the frustration of life changes to forget your worth. I am just sorting through this for myself. Backing up from life and defining myself. It is hard work.
The media inundates us with images of what “real” women are. And they look nothing like most of my friends or myself.
Everyone has an “opinion” on who you are and what you should be. Remember — an opinion is just that — an opinion. It does not define you.
Life can easily become so hectic and in a blur that you lose track of taking care of yourself. Case in point: the holiday season.
The thing is; when you know who you are, what you believe in and your worth, there comes with that a sense of peace and calm. It is taking the time for yourself to come to terms with that. Taking that time to slow life enough to figure out your worth is key.
Today I am thankful
- It is a sunny and crisp beautiful winter day
- My Christmas shopping is ( ) this close to being done
- My Circle of Women. You amaze me.
They say people treat you how you allow them to treat you. Know who and what your worth is and you will stop giving people discounts.
affectionately yours, Laura
