So Worth Loving

Like mentioned yesterday, we have partnered with Not For Sale.

We also want to partner with you as we spread awareness for human trafficking.

Mark your planners, agendas, calendars, phone apps, etc. because on September 3rd at 7:00 PM, we are taking over Taproom Coffee, and we want you to help the takeover.

We will give more information as the day approaches, but until then, get ready to make a difference!

"Human trafficking is the acquisition of people using force, deception, or coercion with the intent to exploit."
-Not For Sale Campaign

We have been given the honor and privilege to partner with Not For Sale to continue shining a light of worth on something that has been going on for years; slavery.
Not For Sale is an organization that is set in California, but is effecting modern-day slavery worldwide. They are on the road to reinventing the globe by trying to disintegrate what has provided billions of dollars of illegal profit:
Sex-trafficking
Forced Labor/Underpaid Labor
Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC)

This partnership has shown us that there are beauties out there that have dealt with too much filth to see their true worth. Women, men, and even children are currently being used, abused, and put into a place of nothing. They are forced to live in situations that contain no sense of self, thus no sense of self-worth, self-love, or even a want to live for themselves.

Keep your calendars marked for the evening of September 3rd, but until then, we will be sharing stories of not only people who have been on the worst end of human trafficking, but also stories of others who are or have dealt with being a slave to something.

As we start this next week of majorly pushing awareness of human trafficking, please don’t hesitate to check out Not For Sale’s website for more information.
Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can show that no matter what circumstance one is in or how degraded they have been, they are so worth loving.

Have you seen our new backpack

The black canvas can go with any outfit, and it’s great quality to uphold any amount of books/laptops/etc. that you are needing on-the-go. 

This is just our way of telling you that even in a rush and when your hands can’t hold it all, you are so worth loving

Check out how you can get yours at soworthloving.com

If there’s any message to my work, it is ultimately that it’s OK to be different, that it’s good to be different, that we should question ourselves before we pass judgment on someone who looks different, behaves different, talks different, is a different color.

Learning To Feel Worthy

You know, a few days ago at a wedding, a friend of mine told me I looked hot. He’s a great friend and although I know that he does not easily say things like this, I honestly can’t say that I believed him. While I said thank you; in my mind I only heard “He’s just saying that to make you feel better. Don’t believe it.

It’s shameful to me. It’s shameful to me that there are days I hear “You’re beautiful” or “You look stunning” or “You’re so smart, you have the world in front of you,” all I hear back are whispers of “you’re not good enough”.

I wish to myself that I wouldn’t feel this way; I pray that I could honestly always believe that I was enough, that I was beautiful enough, smart enough, just enough.

However, even with everything in the world going for me…I doubt.

I doubt a lot.

I write this because I, like many of you, am on a journey. I cannot imagine that a person, like me, who was so loved all her life would struggle so much. I write this because I know that I am one day closer to the end of this journey. I write this because I know somewhere out there, someone else is crying like me.

This post is simple. You and I are worthy of feeling worthy, and until I believe that, every day (not just most days) I will write to you. I will reach out to you, oh precious one who doesn’t love the curve of her stomach, or the freckles on her cheek. To the one who does not believe they are good enough to get whatever job they want, or does not feel that they can take even one step today…I write this to you.

I write for you, for me…for all of us who are on a journey.

It’s okay to be not okay.

It’s perfectly okay to understand that this is just a moment…the tears, the pain, the emotion.

It’s okay to have days like this. It’s okay to cry.

It’s even better to take a breath, understand why you are feeling the way you are, and then move forward. It’s even better, if you’re like me, to put on music that points me to a power higher than myself and rest in that. It’s even better to put on your gear and run, run, run…it’s even better to have a bit of chocolate and then find a friend and tell them that “Today, I’m struggling”.

We’re all going to have days like this…but let them only be moments, then turn around, look in the mirror and know that these moments do not control us, we control them.

We are so worthy of knowing our worth. We are so worth loving.

Written and loved on by Michelle Plett
