There’s a book by Marci Shimoff called Happy for No Reason. Without even reading the book, you can still grasp the meaning behind the title.
You don’t need money, a job, a relationship, awards, or anything else to be happy. With a little shift in your mindset you can learn to be content, satisfied, and even joyful for no particular reason at all.
This morning, with that thought in mind, a similar phrase popped up:
Worthy for no reason.
So many people struggle with self-love and self-worth, often attaching those states of mind to some external circumstance.
In earlier stages of my life I equated my worthiness with my accomplishments. When I met someone for the first time I would do my best to impress them with some achievement or status I had attained.
My self-worth was connected to what I did or what I created.
Now that I’m older I still catch myself leaning that way at times. But I realize more and more that my value isn’t dictated by what I do. It’s based on a deep appreciation for who I am.
Instead of having my worth attached to being a musician, author, YouTuber, or actor … it is now linked to being kind, loving, helpful, determined, inspiring, etc.
Can you embrace this same definition of worthiness?
And let’s take it a step further. Can you feel you are a worthy person just because you are alive? For no other reason than that you are simply here.
With practice and intention, you can get to that point.
Here are some affirmations you can repeat to yourself to help instill this quality of worthiness:
I am worthy.
I am enough.
I deserve to feel good.
At the center of my being, I am whole.
I am complete.
I am worthy of love.
I am worthy of abundance.
I am worthy of success.
I am worthy of happiness.
Life is good and so am I.
I am worthy.
All is well.
