You Have To Decide You Are Worth It

“You have to decide you are worth it.”

I heard that quote not too long ago and I can’t seem to get it out of my mind. I could apply it to so many situations.

If I want to lose weight but am struggling with the temptation of food… “I have to decide I’m worth it” to not eat unhealthy, or too much. I have to decide I’m worth it to take the time and make the effort to exercise.

If I have dreams – I have to decide I’m worth it to pursue them. To believe that I deserve them. That I deserve to be happy.

If someone is treating me wrong; whether in an abusive way, or taking me for granted; I have to decide I’m worth it to say “no more.”

Keep going. You name the situation – the circumstance.  It applies.

The thing is, we have a hard time often coming to terms with the fact that we ARE worth it. We have a hard time understanding and accepting ourselves as we are and being content with that.

But we ARE worth it. We ARE loved and we ARE valuable.

If we don’t treat ourselves like we’re worth it, no one else will either.

Amen, Amen, Amen! I can tell we have a lot in common :) I am struggling with some of the very same things! Have you read Made to Crave yet? I think you'd love it. She says... "We were made for more"... she's right and so are you... We are worth it because He says so! Blessings and thank you for your sweet thoughts on my blog today!
