- deserving effort, attention, or respect.
- good enough; suitable.

I suspect that I am not alone, but I continuously struggle with my self worth.
I struggle with the feelings of being good enough, talented enough, kind enough, generous enough, open enough.
Late last year I was out on one of my 'sanity saver' walks, I started to wonder why? Why wasn't I worthy.
I mean, what made some one else more worthy than me? Of course my little bitch came out and suggested in her sly voice, "what makes you think you would be more worthy or some one else Kirstin??"
But as I thought about it more, I realised, it wasn't that I deserved more than some one else, or that I was competing for some kind of accolade, what I realised that I, myself, was worthy (in the broad sense of the word), I was good enough, suitable even + because of this I am worthy.
I came home and immediately wrote down areas in my life that I was feeling un-worthy and this is what I came up with…
☆ I am worthy of investing time into myself
☆ I am worthy of having a deep connection with my husband
☆ I am worthy of having a fabulous relationship with my kids
☆ I am worthy of having treasured friendships
☆ I am worthy of having my creative space to create beautiful art
☆ I am worthy of loosing those last freaking 10lbs that I have had for 20 years now,
☆ I am worthy of having a cup of coffee in peace and quiet
☆ I just am damn it.
And still feeling a little raw when it was time for the girls to have their rest, I painted it too.
So it is no surprise that 'worthy' is my word for 2014. And when ever the little bitch pays a visit, on my studio wall, on a slightly coffee stained post-it is the phrase: 'WHY? Because I am so worth it. x"
And I wanted to share this with you, because sometimes, (+ you may not realise it), but it is really important to know that you are worthy of everything you dream of.
I pinky swear it!
I would love to know what your word of 2014 is, if you have one, or even better, what you are worthy of in twenty fourteen!
