The first step in acknowledging and accessing your worth, value, and sense of fulfillment, is to take an honest personal assessment. Set aside some quiet time where you can have privacy and think. Take your journal, notebook or diary and a pen, and ask yourself the following questions:
Am I happy?
What gives me joy?
What contributions do I make?
Do I feel acknowledged for the contributions I make?
Are my relationships fulfilling?
Do I nurture and enjoy my relationships?
Am I achieving goals that I set for myself?
Do my activities and lifestyle contribute to my sense of worth and well-being?
Do I take personal responsibility for my actions?
Does something or someone else dictate how I should feel or act?
You may be reassured by the answers you give, or you may find that you need to focus more on certain areas in your life. Whatever the responses you have to the questions above, reflect on them. What do they mean for you? How will you take ownership of your feelings, accomplishments and life so that you can progress and grow? This series focuses on being your best self. In my next post, Ill give you ways to connect with your talents and strengths.
“Throughout this series, my intent is to provide visitors with information and exercises designed to guide women to define their own self-worth, take responsibility for it and then to pass it on to others. I will introduce the concept of self-worth and explore how to apply it to various areas of womens lives, including love, sex and intimacy, finances and motherhood. And finally, I will provide ideas of how to give back to your fellow women.” -Cheryl Saban
