You wilSelf Value. What an incredible thought. A mere thought, right? Or is it an action? A feeling?
Self Value is the ability to see what you are worth, despite what others may think. You can not determine your self value based on someone's opinion of you. You find self value based on the love that you have for yourself.
For those of you that know me personally, know that I have an incredibly patient, kind and loving husband. This is the truth and this is something so hard to find. My hottie scottie was a man that I always loved from the day I met him, yet never thought I could attain. I did not think that I was good enough for him or a man this great could ever love me. Bad relationship after bad relationship, I was always spiraling and looking for the wrong type of person to love me. Because I didn't know my self worth or my self value. When I started to have confidence and find love for myself, that is when Scottie starting noticing me and we starting clicking. Till this day, I am still shocked that a man this great could love me. Me.
In turn, this is similar to my photography. Like most artists, we struggle to think we are good or worth being paid for. For years, as my photography skills grew and my confidence grew, I found my self value. I found love for my talent. Self Value also equates to your value as an artist. I am not a budget photographer. I am not $100 for as many digital images as I shoot. If you are looking for a talented, knowledgable and worthy photographer, that is me. And it is also an investment into me. You will treasure these portraits for the rest of your life. A portrait of your son at his first birthday. A portrait of your wife, the moment she finds love for herself again. A portrait of a family member that is no longer with us. A portrait that exudes love, embodies power and becomes an heirloom, a witness to your family.
Thank you for being on this journey with me.
Have you found your self value?
