The things of this world lose and gain value every day. One day something can be of importance and everyone is out to get it and then the next it’s gone with the wind. How do you stay reminded of your value living in today’s society?
Having an appreciation for your value begins with understanding and loving you. Do you really know yourself? What’s your personality and temperament? What’s your strengths and weakness? What’s your style of communication? What’s your love language? How does your personality and temperament interact with others? Are you and Introvert or Extrovert? Learning about who you are helps you to understand how you interact with the world around you. The better understanding we have of self the more capable we are of appreciating our authenticity.
Once you learn who you are the next step is to love that person. Love is an action word, which means you have to ask yourself what actions of love do I feed myself? Is the environment , friendships, relationships that I am in help or hinder my ability to love me. Are the life-style practices I choose healthy or unhealthy actions of love?
I’ve learned on my journey I had a false sense of my value. Therefore I also was choosing the wrong actions to feed myself love. Once I began to understand and embrace me, I also changed the unhealthy patterns that did not feed my soul with love. My focus in life became appreciating how my Creator designed me and sharing the testimony of my journey in hopes of inspiring others to do the same. The more you embrace your authentic self and unapologetically live and speak your truth it empowers others to also share their voice. And when everyone is living their authentic lives a beautiful song is heard in this world. When people are living out their purpose lives and communities are transformed, change for the good occurs, the true power of healing is unleashed upon the world.
