Notice the Value in Those Around You

"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch."

~e. e. cummings

We all need to believe in our own value, and although we can do much to acknowledge our own value to ourselves, when another person acknowledges our value, it has special meaning.  Knowing that someone else notices that we are valuable, worthy and deserving gives us a special gift--the recognition that someone else notices what we have to offer. 

This week:  Think about who in your life has acknowledged your value and worthiness.  Who has recognized that specialness you hold inside?  Who recognizes what you have to offer the world?  How has this helped you believe in yourself?  How do you do this for others?  Think about revealing to those you know that inside them you see something valuable, worth listening to, worthy of your trust and sacred to your trust.  Notice how it feels to give this gift to others.  Pay attention to opportunities to confirm what you notice in others and how they confirm what they notice in you.

Linda, thanks for quoting my favorite poet e.e. cummings. This reminds me of an interview I conducted years ago pertaining to abuse. It was a very simple formula. Children who know love give love and become loved. Children who don't have a very hard time. Good job of making us all think about loving one another more!

You lived with blessed work Linda; where you get to show others the gift of their value on a regular basis. Sharing in such a privilege, and being able to often hear from others of my own value, I sometimes don't really listen to the gift they are giving to me.

From a recent experience I had at the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro, NC, I am committing to 'hearing.' I wish the same for you in the wonderful work you do - in the wonderful gift of your own value.

Great post Linda.
There are so many opportunities to recognize people and show them how special they are.....the dividends are unlimited when we show others the love they deserve.
