Immeasurable Worth

Friday, October 18, 2019

It's so easy to buy into the misinterpreted perception of our own insignificance of worth. We may see celebrities or successful people around us, whether in our own community, in a magazine, or on TV and compare ourselves to them, thinking that their fame or material worth and power affirms how little our own lives amount to. 

Listen to me, nothing could be further from the truth. Every single one of us matters--to a very great extent in fact. Our very existence affects countless people in immeasurable ways. And because we are each essentially a minute part of the greater universe, our internal experiences affect the whole of life more than we ever imagined. This world simply could not exist as it does if you, or anyone of us, were not a part of it.

Perhaps you think that on some level you are of the belief that your life does not matter. If this thought meets with your judgement of yourself, maybe it is time to take a look at why you feel this way. You may have formed self-rejecting or belittling beliefs as a child to keep yourself safe or to help you make sense of the confusing world around you. 
You may have felt invisible; unseen or unheard and came to your own conclusion that there was something faulty with you, rather than with the people around you. So, take the time, spend some time looking into where these feelings of insignificance first took hold, and see what changes you may be able to make in your life and your heart.

This one belief in your own unimportance could be limiting you and impacting your life in enormous ways. When you shift your perceptions around your own ability to affect your life and impact the world, you may discover wonderful parts of yourself that you had long ago forgotten. 
There may even be exciting new parts that you never even knew existed. When you gain awareness of how much your life really does matter, new sources of energy can emerge and your sense of connection with the world is renewed.

    It is hard to overcome when we look only at ourselves. Look around, bet you'll see that you do make a difference.

    YES YES YES! We ALL matter. That’s how God planned it! eVeryone has diverse talents. That’s as it was and is meant to be.

    Kind of like in that Christmas movie . . . . It’s a Wonderful . . . . he finds out that his life DOES make a difference in this world!
