Know Your Worth and a Two Year Old

I’ve had a lot of trouble with this lately.

For the past few weeks I’ve had a lot of trouble remembering my worth.

I have been floating around at work, doing a different job every single day and so I’ve had a lot of trouble knowing where I belong.

It’s hard to express this and it has been really hard to write the past couple weeks because I haven’t felt like I could write. I’ve felt bad my posts were down and I’ve felt that no one would read if I wrote a post like this.

However sometimes talking to a guest will make all the difference in the world.

Last night I was working in the spa: doing laundry, cleaning up after people, and making sure all the women were happy. One of our favorite members came in to use the spa and she knows that I work front desk and that every so often I help with concierge. She was surprised that I was way in the back. She came up to me and asked why I was back there. I told her I had been helping out because some people had left. She told me that she respected that I was helping out and happy that I was getting hours, but she didn’t want me to forget my worth. I’m young and she wanted me to be reminded that I need to know my worth, no matter where I go in life. I stood there and almost cried, but no crying in front of the guests!

I finished my night strong last night and then went to a place where I know I’m happy: church, to pick up Myke from practice. I had a little surprise there: Ben. You know Ben, his mom just had another baby and Ben is now in the “Terrible Twos.” Needless to say, Mom needed a break. So it was nice to see him, play with him and blow off a little steam. He kept wanting me to run with him, he kept yelling, “Wunn! Wunn!” (Translation: Run! Run!). So I ran with him and listened to that sweet laugh that makes me smile and I felt a lot better.

So my advice to you today is know your worth. I’m working on it.

Also, if a two year old is available, run with them. It makes you smile and feel a whole lot better.

Seeing this picture of Myke and Ben always makes my heart smile.

    This is beautiful. You just have to know that the woman who spoke to you was a reminder from God that you really are worth so much. I’m glad that she helped you feel a little better, and I hope that this week turns out to be wonderful!
