Isn’t it fascinating how we give so much power to certain numbers in our life?
- The number on the scale
- The number in your bank account
- The number on your tax return
Those numbers have power because you’ve bought into a cultural belief that those numbers validate your worth.
Big fat lie!!!
The number on the scale is just a number. It tells you what you weigh today. It is what you make that number mean that can give you pain + suffering, or make you feel good.
In my experience the scale is usually painful, because we’re all so good at dress rehearsing tragedy. So, even if a number you like shows up, you’re still worried about it increasing again one day.
The numbers in your bank account and on your tax return are only numbers. Money is this fantastic thing because it is totally objective.
As a child growing up in difficult economic circumstances, I often took our lack of money to mean we were bad people and not good enough to have money.
Isn’t it fascinating how our brains can turn against us and beat the crap out of ourselves. And at such a young age.
This is due to the cultural programming we receive via other people, media, and our own family of origin’s beliefs. We have been taught to tie our worthiness to numbers.
Stop listening to those stories right now! (saying this with lots of love + compassion).
Your worthiness has nothing to do with the numbers in your life. They are ONLY numbers and you are YOU!
