Growing up with very little self esteem was difficult. I think low self worth keeps you from being who you want to be and really doing what you should be doing. Wearing a “kick me” sign walking down the halls of high school didn’t help either. It’s true. The girl on the left side of the picture above was teased and bullied in school. But this post is not about bullying. It’s about my worth. Mine and every woman’s worth.
Finding your worth might be a long, lonely road. Realizing that you make a difference in somebody’s life, maybe many lives. Recognizing that every day things that you do and take for granted make so many lives easier and happier. Sometimes waking up every day is difficult, filled with so much pain. Work by definition is the exertion or effort directed to produce or accomplish something. We as women produce and accomplish every single day. We provide love and a safe haven for our children. We have consideration and empathy for our fellow human beings. We care for our families, our significant others, even complete strangers. We continue to make a difference, yet I think many don’t realize it. A kind word or friendly smile can turn grey skies blue.
We as women have made a difference. Our work is never done. It’s our job, our adventure of sorts. I don’t think we take it that seriously, but we should. On this, the eve of Mother’s Day, lets reflect on all the times that a woman made our lives easier, more secure and made us feel more loved.
Happy Mother’s Day, to ALL WOMEN.
Please watch the video, This Woman’s Work by Hope Murphy. This girl has a beautiful voice. She gives me chills and was the inspiration for my post today.

So true. I agree! We as women underestimate our power and contribution. It is a daily effort – it never stops.
