It’s Okay Not To Be Okay

Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves each time we wake up and see a new day?

What causes us to become so discontent with what we have that causes bitterness in our hearts towards others?

How do we use what we go through to inspire and create a platform to voice out and help others in need?

What kind of solution are you going to create to help those who are about to give up?

I will keep saying this; IT IS OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY. I don’t always have it together and I don’t worry about it because the more you worry, the more it will affect your health. Please note this. It is fine to have your plans wrecked, it is okay not to have everything under your control. There are always logical reasons behind this. I remember a time my friend had an interview and was late for around 5/6 minutes. My friend did not get the job. My friend then applied for the same job but closer to home and finally received the job. My friends concern was how am I going to survive without having a job, not realising that ‘distance’ was not taken into account and this is what at times we take for granted.

We want something so badly that we rush the process and apply for anything; however we have not calculated the consequences (the length of journey) in this case to even consider if we will make it ‘on time’. Please know that when a rejection letter comes, it is not them rejecting you; it is them rejecting your ‘potential lateness’. Do not write yourself off and feel you don’t add value. Only someone who is not breathing doesn’t add value. You are alive and well reading this post so believe when I say you will be okay.

It is okay not to have everything together; Rome was not built in a day, neither can we expect our lives to be the way we want it to be in one day. It is a process that we must not forfeit and keep going until the victory is won. Some days will be harder but it will get better. You will smile again; you will laugh again; you will love again, but throughout the journey, learn something from it. Take it and use to your advantage.

You have a purpose; you are worthy and you matter. Don’t write yourself off just because someone else did. There are people who you know and don’t know that watch you whether it is through social media, videos or your website. Don’t hide yourself for fear of being judged. Let transparency speak for itself. People invest in those that are real and honest about what they go through. Don’t ‘pretend’. We have enough pretence in our generation that we NOW need truth and selflessness. Remember: it is okay not to be okay.

Love Esther.

Turn your story into a book | Authentic Worth Online Masterclass 2019

On behalf of the Women’s Worth Conference, Authentic Worth will be launching an Online Masterclass Course on how to write a book for first time and Aspiring Authors starting in May 2019. This is a great opportunity to network, connect, and meet like-minded people who aspires to be a Self-Published Author. We want to ensure that the information and content provided will leave you with all-round knowledge of what it takes to write your book, the process of the journey through to publishing and getting it on the market. If you want to learn how to write a book, there is only one sensible place to start and that is with writing and investing time in research, knowing who your target market is, and more importantly, the purpose behind the book. A seed in your hand is not enough if you don’t put it in soil to grow; it will always remain a seed until you nurture it into a plant.

Do you feel stuck and want to share your story?
Are you worried about sharing your story but don’t know where to start?
Do you feel your story has no voice or platform?
Are you unsure of how much the publishing process will cost?
Do you believe your book will provide a solution to someone’s problem? If so…

Then this course is for you!

Authentic Worth would like to give you the opportunity to take advantage of the course content prior to the start date. If you would like to be added to the emailing list, email authenticworth@gmail.com for more information.

You have a purpose; a silent mouth is a silent destiny. You have what it takes to write your book. Let Authentic Worth bring worth back into YOU!

 

There is still hope for our world!

The way I see life makes me truly wonder why we exist. Do we exist just to work, make money, rest, pay off bills, etc. There must be more to life than this! What are we really here for you may ask. Looking at our world all around us, there is so much pressure, so much heartache that one can’t even bear. What humbles me is the gift of life that is given freely every day.

We must be intentional about how to live a fruitful and pleasant life, despite all the noise that happens around us. Our words, actions, and lifestyles can contribute massively to the influence our world has, and can change it for the better if used wisely. When I wake up everyday, I think about how I could make a difference in society, starting from my intimate circle and those around me.

We are already aware of what is going on in our world; the tears, the frustrations, the unexpected losses, you name it.

I would not want to live a life complaining, worrying about what I don’t yet have, anxious about what the future holds. No, I want to appreciate every day I have, taking it one step at a time and changing one life at a time. Do not write yourself off because you have a purpose. What you go through can change someone else’s life, so do not feel your life has no impact.

There is still hope for our world. If we are intentional, we can be game-changes for those we can reach, locally, globally, and internationally. You can make a difference by checking on someone you haven’t spoken to for a long while and listen when they speak. Our world is going through enough, and all we need is a helping hand and someone who will understand.

I am reminded that life isn’t my own and can’t live the way I want to, but what I CAN do is use my existence to make a difference to our world. We must think global to impact globally. We are not islands and can’t do this life on our own. We need people. You and I. Teamwork. Unity. Love. Understanding. When last have we made this a priority. Remember, there is still hope for our world, and as long as you are living, YOU HAVE PURPOSE! Don’t waste it. Please share with someone who will be inspired.

Focus is the real MVP!

Focus is contagious. It does not involve how you feel towards what other people are doing. Focus is the most valued person in your life that wants to bring out the best in you. You are in control of your Destiny and what you want to achieve. Words are seeds; they can either grow or die. With focus being in the right place, it has to be utilised to the highest level of your well-being and mental state.

Be intentional on what you focus on, and put all effort into it because no one is responsible for your life apart from you. Focus keeps you content, thankful and ready to face what is ahead. It enables you to appreciate where you are and work on yourself. Life is a real journey with trials, however, there is also joy, peace and happiness that comes with it.

Focus is the goal. From a personal perspective, when my focus is on God, that is where life is orchestrated in such a profound way. I don’t need to worry about what I don’t have yet, or try to attain it in my own power. I honestly don’t have any power. I am human just like you. But what I do have is FOCUS! don’t lose it this year people! Please maintain a good standard of focus. Do not over think or overanalyse situations. It is okay to be imperfect. Our world perceives us to have everything at a demanding time, but how about allowing your circumstance to teach you a valuable lesson.

My hearts desire is to see many free from brokenness, fear, frustration and self-doubt. All these things I’ve experienced and I use this to encourage and strengthen you.

Let focus be the real Most Valuable Person in your life. Allow focus to keep going when it seems difficult to progress. We are all working in progresses. Until then, have a great Monday. Remember; gratitude says everything about your attitude.
