You are worth so much more than you will ever know.

You are worth so much more than you will ever know.

Today we have another post from contributor, Stephanie Carfrae. She is a Creative Writing Graduate; you can find her own blog at and I think you will be inspired by Stephanie's first video on YouTube  

Hard to believe isn’t it? It takes time, but if you believe in it enough it can change your day, or indeed your life.

I used to think after all I had been through in my life, that I’d be in light at the end of the tunnel soon. But I’ve come to realise that I’ve got to keep clawing my way to get closer to the light for myself. Because I really deserve this. This is a key belief to have, to know you deserve it. Because of self-esteem issues it can seem like you’re not worthy of anything at times. But you are. You are worth so much more than you will ever know. And you too, deserve to see the light with the same velocity that I do. Although I may have been through more during my life up to this point, or you have, we have been through enough to know that we deserve more. Shoot for the moon, and even if you miss or fall you’ll still be dancing in the stars.

I’ve been down low last week because of unforeseen circumstances, and do you know what got me through? It’s a quote that my best friend ran past me in casual conversation: ‘It may be stormy right now, but it can’t rain forever.’ And that picked me up out of a dark place and made me smile. It was as small as that! I have that quote stuck to my mirror so that every time I look into it I am reminded. It may be forward thinking, but I foresaw that when I felt low before, it wouldn’t be the last time, so in comprehending this I tend to write down what my friends say to me (when I find what they say inspiring) just because I know it will make me feel better the next time I feel bad. And having that quote on the mirror, so that I saw it every day really helped because it was there right when I needed it. 

When I read the notes I have recorded from my friends, I feel so inspired and the world better. I can hear my friends saying them, so I always get a buzz from them. Give it a go, you never know. You never know what is going to happen tomorrow, so take chances because you don’t want to have regrets.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't. It may be quite beautiful music but it is not what it claims to be. And in my view it does not have the same power.  This is authentic, beautiful and powerful Singer, song writer and guitarist Robbie Robertson was born Jaime Robert Klegerman in 1943, in Toronto, Ontario. He was born to a Jewish father and a Mohawk mother and took his stepfather's last name after his mother remarried. He had his earliest exposure to music at Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation , Ontario where he spent summers with his mother's family. He is best known for his membership in The Band.
