Worth Your Time: A Word on Worthiness

Worthiness

noun

  • the quality of being good enough; suitability: “he demonstrates his worthiness to rule”

Where do you go to determine your worth?

Maybe you have never considered the places you go to validate your worth. Maybe you have never wrestled with the question of your worthiness.

While I know some people never find their worth on the trading floor of life, I have just never been among those folks. It seems that unworthiness has been a hard fought battle in my life for as long as I can remember.

I have tied worthiness to a long list of things including my mothering, achievements, and work, and the only problem with that is the work in those arenas is never done. With that in mind, this is a truth worth considering.

Quote from Alyssa DeLosSantos

We do not arrive at worthiness. It is not achievable because it is a gift–something we have to be open to receiving and believing. In a fast-paced, immediate gratification world, we would often prefer the limelight of the stage or winner’s podium, but the quiet work of believing and receiving rarely garners attention or accolades.

If you are feeling empty, discouraged, or defeated today, this is worth five minutes of your time. It is a manifesto for me and you!

  1. Such wisdom. I think as a coach most of my life and living and dying on a win-loss record each season my worth felt tied up in that success. It took a lot of years to relinquish that control. Thanks you
