Reference Your Worth

Over the last several weeks, I have either requested letters of reference or have been asked to write them. As I read the letters, I realized that they are letters created to “Reference Your Worth”. Each of these letters are written to explain to someone all of your wonderful attributes and characteristics. They are like cheerleaders hyping people up about you.

It was fascinating to read letters from people who have known me for well over 10 years and compare them to the letters written by people who have known me for only a few years, and see the same characteristics mentioned. As I wrote reference letters for others, I wanted to be a “cheerleader” for them, and highlight all of their wonderful characteristics. I wanted to provide for them what others had provided for me…I wanted to affirm them…I wanted to reference their worth.

As I thought about the power and influence of our words, I realized that these letters were really affirmations. I began to think about what a great exercise it would be for people to write their own reference letters about themselves. I thought about how if you take the time to Reference Your Worth you will be reminded of your wonderful attributes…you would be reminded of your value.

Throughout my book, The G.R.E.A.T.E.S.T. Soul Journey as well as in my song The G.R.E.A.T.E.S.T. Lullaby Meditationn, I remind you…

“You are Priceless!”

Although circumstances and events may have happened in life that are labeled as negative, your value is still retained…”You are Priceless!” I encourage you to remember and recognize your worth, your value. Once you remember your worth and value, you will not live below that value and/or accept treatment that does not recognize your true value. I encourage you to look in the mirror, look directly in your eyes and tell yourself “I Am Priceless!”

As we come to the end of the month, which has been dedicated to Affirming By The Spirit, take some time and write a reference letter about/for yourself and Reference Your Worth. Once you have done this, post it where you can read it regularly to remind yourself of your wonderful qualities and to remind yourself of worth. Remember…”You are Priceless!”

God Bless and continue to Live By The Spirit.

  1. Reading others’ references of me really does give me a boost and help me see my worth. It elevates my perspective of self and empowers me.

  2. Beautiful words. I look forward to everyone “paying it forward,” by enlightening each other on how truly special each of us are.

    • Hi Grace,
      I like that concept of “paying it forward” with words of affirmation. What a Powerful ability we have to edify ourselves and others!
      Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift of writing and beautiful thoughts of positivity with us and the world 🙂
