You are beautiful. You are kind. You are smart. You are a survivor. You are powerful. You are loved. You are love.
How did reading those phrases make you feel? Did you cringe? Did you disassociate, as if the words were meant for someone else? (They weren’t, by the way.) Or, were you able to really take them in?
Try it again, this time swapping out the pronoun “you” for “I”—and this time, reciting the phrases to yourself: I am beautiful. I am kind. I am smart. I am a survivor. I am powerful. I am loved. I am love.
Yes. You, are. In fact, we all are, because no two of us are alike. Every single one of us is a unique miracle. Anyone that has tried to have a child knows that creation is magic, and the fact that we are here, reading this piece, in this body, in this day and time, means that we are already incredibly blessed. Instead of spending all of our precious mental energy on beating ourselves up or fixating on what we think we lack, let us own our worth.
Imagine what you would do with all that energy and time you waste in the comparison trap? What would you create if you knew you could not fail or did not care even if you did? What would life be like if you felt like you were enough?
Owning your worth is the ultimate expression of self-love, because it an act of radical self-acceptance. It is deeply knowing that we are enough, even when the world tries to tell us we are not. It is not seeking external validation to fill ourselves up, because we are full on our own. It is remembering our history to recognize our strength. It is being confident in our ability to manifest the life we seek while standing in the power we already have. It is living from the heart, where we are already perfect.
