Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Believe in yourself………you are worthy.  Goodness cannot follow you if you don’t believe in yourself.  Sometimes we allow the people and circumstance around us to define our value  and this leads to a life dance that always seems to keep us in pursuit of our own worth.  With increasingly busy lives….. we can get caught in the stress of life to such an extent that we lose sight of where we thought we were going.  We forget that faith is fear in reverse and so we never make the discovery that you can do what you are afraid of.

We live in a throw-away society and keeping your word, being there when you said you would, being dependable and reliable makes you stand out as a person of some value, some worth, and this is a good thing. Yet if we look closely at our lives we can sometimes see the inequity.  Doing things so others feel ok, but leaving yourself feeling empty is not how we establish our worth.  In life, we must stand alone in what is true for us and always remember that the life boat sails best on the sea of faith. 

Iyanla Vanzant said “How long are you going to hold on to the things that are not working in your best interest.  Things that are not fulfilling.  How long are you going to deny yourself, your feelings and your power in order to meet the expectations of others.  Perhaps today is as good a day as any to let go of others and grab onto your SELF.  Life is not about holding on.  Life is not about doing what will make others believe you are worthy.  Life is about moving through, moving on, growing up and growing through each and every experience.  Today stand squarely in your worthiness.”
