The topic surrounding todays post is something that has been on my mind for a long time...knowing your worth. I guess its because I have struggled to find balance within it in my own life.
But we all do right? After all, this isn't something they teach you in school. I like to think of it as one part self awareness and one part gut feeling. And it doesn't matter if you're on your job or in a relationship, we all know when we start to tolerate more than we should and feel the need to say something, anything to stick up for ourselves.
"Just don't overreact". Right. At least that's the message society feeds us the second we raise our hand to demand our worth in any situation. But I won't be a hypocrite. And while I would like to say that I always keep calm and carry on, telling ya'll that would be a big fat southern lie. In fact, I am guilty as charged for overreacting a time or two. Sometimes the passion gets the best of me. And even if I take it too far, I have never regretted speaking my truth when it mattered most.
I say all of this to tell you to celebrate your worth today! You are gorgeous, intelligent, talented, #FLAWLESS in every way and God has amazing things planned for your life! Walk in that state of mind today! And if anyone tries to tell you any different or make you accept less than what you know you're worth, set 'em straight girlfriend :]
Have a great Thursday ladies!
