Am I Worthy and Deserving?

I am worthy and deserving of awesomeness in my life.

It’s interesting how often I need to remind myself of this.  There have been many instances where I do not feel as though I deserve to have the things I desire in my life.

Worthy and DeservingCrossing the Bridges is the most personal of my weekly posts.  I am exploring not only my philosophies and approaches to life, but my actual, factual life.

In Positivity I pointed out that YOU are amazing!  Part of the reason for this is because recognition of worth is something we take too often for granted.  Along this same line, Pathwalking involved looking at the empowerment of praise.  Praising can raise our frequencies.  Higher frequencies are associated with better feelings.  I don’t know anyone who doesn’t want to feel good.

For much of my life, I have struggled with my self-esteem.  Some of this is borne of depression, some of it is life experiences along the way.  Recognizing my own self-worth, and deserving of good things has proven to be challenging at times.

While getting outside validation of my worth can help, it’s really a matter of me recognizing my own deserving.  Am I worthy of success, abundance, and overall good things in my life?  Logically, I know the answer is yes.  But feeling it is where the challenge often lies.

Feeling emotions has been a struggle for me most of my life.  Sure, there are several instances from my past I can point to for this, but they do not matter now.  No, I am an adult.  I need to take responsibility for how I feel.  When I am not feeling right, it’s up to me to work in the here-and-now to adjust that.

There is never a quick-fix when it comes to this.

Recognizing being worthy and deserving is not a selfish act.

One of the other issues that comes from this is a fear of being perceived as selfish.  We are socially so inundated by stories of unbelievable greed and selfishness, it’s hard not to see any act that does not help other people as one that’s not selfish.

Taking care of ourselves is not the same as being selfish.  Being selfish comes from a lack mentality.  It’s the notion that there is not enough to go around, so I have to hoard what there is.  Greed is of the same ilk, and a monetary form of selfishness.

When I say I am deserving and worthy of awesomeness in my life, I am also suggesting that you are, too.  But in order to have more to give, I need to have some for myself.

We live in an abundant universe.  This is not an easy thing to recognize, because our society is hyper-focused on lack and scarcity.  Consciousness creates reality.  The more we focus on what we don’t want, the more we are in danger of creating.

I am a good person.  Maybe I am not always the best office worker, and from time to time I can be stubborn.  But I am a good person, with a good heart.  I want to live a life with abundance and prosperity.  Not just so that I can have more of the things I want, but so that I can also give more.

The awesomeness I am worthy and deserving of is both tangible and intangible.

Nobody but you can determine your own worth.  Yet regularly, we turn to peers and loved ones for affirmation.   The thing is, even if they tell us we are worthy, we might not feel it.

This is why I am stating in the open that I am worthy and deserving of a good life.  Because everyone is.

We are worthy even when we screw up.

Every single one of us is perfectly imperfect.  Part of the human condition is that we’re going to get it wrong.  We will cause someone to feel hurt, or disrespected, or unloved.  We will make mistakes.  There will be foul-ups both great and small along the way.  These are the lessons that help us to grow.  They do not lessen our worth.

I have been reciting a new Mantra or Mightiness, as Jen Sincero calls it, for almost two weeks.  As often as I am putting it out there, I need to do so even more.  It reminds me of my worth, and that I deserve to be abundant and happy.

There is always work to be done.  This is actually a good thing, because that work is how we grow.  I have a lot of things I am aiming to do with my life.  I know that I can make them happen.

Abundance and prosperity are things I am worthy and deserving of, just the same as you are.  It is ok to be aware of this.  Awareness is consciousness, and consciousness creates reality.

As always, thank you for crossing the bridges between my worlds with me!

Do You Know That You Are Amazing?

You are an amazing individual.

No, really.  I might not know you in the slightest, but I can honestly tell you that you are an amazing person.  We may disagree about any number of topics, we may have totally different and diametrically opposed backgrounds, but I can still tell you that you are an amazing individual.

You Are AmazingPeople tend to not give themselves enough credit.  We look for our faults, we work on the things about ourselves that are flawed…but this is backwards.  Working from the negative does not help to build more positive.

American culture in particular stresses how inadequate our lives are.  We need the better car, bigger home, fitter body and so on.  We look to all of our flaws, our shortcomings and the things that are lacking, and we give that a tremendous amount of energy and thought, feeling and even action.

Consciousness creates reality.  Negativity begets further negativity.  When you are looking for the imperfections, the problems and the flaws – you will constantly find more.  Does this strike you as backwards as it strikes me?  Why give the energy to negativity, when what we in fact want is positivity?

We all find ourselves alone from time to time.  When we are alone, we tend to look at the problems we have faced, the hardships, the issues that need to be repaired and worked on.  But what we really should focus on is our abilities, our skills, good things we do for ourselves and our friends and loved ones.

We should put that energy not towards all the negative things we find in ourselves, but rather to the positive.  Focus on what an amazing individual you are, all that you are capable of doing and achieving, and don’t give that energy to your perceived shortcomings.

Know how amazing you are.

The trap that we often fall into is the feeling of selfishness.  We have become utterly self-conscious about things we do being perceived as selfish.  Thus we take selflessness to a place where we often do, in fact, lose track of the self.  We get so concerned with how others might perceive us that we instead look for the imperfections and flaws in ourselves, so that we can actively avoid anything that might come across as selfish.

Amazing, you areConsciousness creates reality.  I cannot stress that point enough.  When you look for and give power to negative perceptions of the self, you actually get even more of those.

It is time to step back, and recognize ourselves for all the amazing things we have to offer.  This is not an act of bragging or selfishness, it is an act of recognizing the positive, giving that more energy and attention so that we can drive out negativity and feel good.

When all is said and done isn’t this what we most want?  Don’t we prefer to feel good, to feel happy?  Are these positive or negative feelings?

Please take a moment not to look at the money you need to find, the weight you need to lose or anything else negative about your life.  Instead, recognize, acknowledge and give energy to the amazing individual you are.  Your talents, your creativity, your strengths, your ability to love and be loved.

Explore all the positive about yourself and energize that rather than the negative.  You ARE amazing.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that you are an amazing person, you can build off of that premise.  When we examine our strengths, our talents, abilities, our capacity to do everything we can do and more, we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we frequently spread that feeling to others around us; as such, we can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.


This is the two-hundred and fifth entry of my Positivity series.  It is my hope these weekly messages might help spread positive energies for everyone.  Feel free to share, re-blog and spread the positivity.
