Before You Even Open Your Eyes, Know You’re Worthy
I was raised that if you worked for it then you deserved it. If you worked really hard, if you really killed yourself and went above and beyond, then you earned it. You know what? I think that’s a lie. I think life is meant to be easy.
I used to wake up in the morning not feeling of worth unless I did this, this, this and this and at the end of the day, if I accomplished everything I had on my list, I allowed myself to feel worthy. That’s a really hard way to live.
Sure, we might need to focus our attention on something for a certain period of time to learn a specific skill, but until we have that specific skill our worthiness isn’t diminished. It’s not on hold until we can contribute enough to feel that we “earned it” or “deserve it”.
I allow myself to be worthy first thing in the morning and see how the day goes from that place. No matter what I do or don’t have on my to-do list, I am already worthy.
That’s my challenge for you. Give it a go. Before you open your eyes every day, tell yourself that you are worthy. Then hop out of bed and conquer the day. You can do it.>
