Self-Love Reflections: Worth

Posted: July 24, 2011 at 2:00 pm

Through the first half of this year, every Sunday has revolved around one of the self-love messages I originally posted in the 30 Days of Self Love Movement from last September. This post was my favorite to write in this series because it embodied everything we discussed. I still hold these hopes for all of you today…as well as myself. Let us continue to grow in our strengths, deepen our love for ourselves, and further believe in our worth. Thank you for being a part of FFF and helping me do all of those on a daily basis.

I long for us all to fully believe we hold so much value, so we may go out and live our lives with the beauty that unmistakably defines us. You are worthy because:

Your body does miraculous things. It carries you through life and gives you the physical capacity to do many things you love. It provides health and vitality to enjoy all life has to offer. Your body is pretty freaking awesome!! Never forget the gifts of your body.

Remember that those body parts which share so many gifts are also gorgeous as well. Even if they don’t fit in with the standards of society, they are still beautiful. Our unique physical attributes make us lovely.

Even more beautiful than all of that, however, is what makes up who we are. None of us are perfect, but all of us are wonderful. We each have our own strengths which can help uplift others. We each have our own passions, which can make life more exciting.We each have something to offer the world.


I pray you strive to drain every drop of sweetness from life. You deserve it.  Always remember to see the light at the end of the tunnel and believe you have the strength and will to reach it. Take joy in every day because you have the power to find it and claim it for your own. Don’t let trivial matters of numbers and physical appearance define you. Refuse to lose your life in a search for control, a denial of forgiveness, or fear to try new challenges. Live so you may love yourself. And then love yourself more, so you may live more. That is my wish for you. To let it really sink in, listen to this song if you can. It’s how I feel for each of you.

Love, Tina
