What is your value? What is your real worth? It is just monetary? Are you completely replaceable? Does anyone else show you how valuable you are?
I have had to deal with this a lot. Especially lately. Do I have value or am I just a hard worker trying to keep busy? I believe I have value but it doesn’t get confirmed by others. Does that mean I am wrong and living in a dream world? I honestly don’t know.
I am not on the hunt for quick compliments. I don’t want to be pacified with cheap praise. I want to believe that I have some real value. I would like to feel valued and valuable.
I was right when I last posted that I would walk out of watching the “Wonder Woman” movie feeling empowered. It was such a fantastic movie! Women often presume that to feel powerful they have to behave as a man. That’s just not true. WW is very feminine and very powerful. I love it.
I sometimes daydream and put myself in movie like scenarios where I am a heroine or the leading lady. I have decided I want to be WW in real life though. In my real life I want to the leading, powerful lady whose value is unmeasurable. I am going to be a lady of action that doesn’t need the credit but gets the job done, whatever that job may be.
Today, I had to clean toilets before I led our church in worship and taught young teens in class. I am willing to do whatever is needed. In my personal life, I am willing to put myself out there and accomplish goals that have seemed impossible before. I want to push myself past the seeable limits. For my family, I want to be the warrior that fights for them and doesn’t let them get left behind.
We cannot just become valuable sitting on a shelf though. That’s for limited editions and relics. I am in the here and now and am not that unique. But I will increase my value by getting completely connected with the power inside me and pushing myself. I am of value and soon, I will not need someone to confirm it for me. I will just know.
