A HIGH VALUE WOMAN

Updated: Mar 25, 2019

An Insightful Poem by Jo Kathleen Marie



[ SCROLL DOWN FOR POEM ]


It was midday, 2018 when it landed. The eureka moment. I felt an electric-like jolt enter my body. My eyes widened. I scrambled for my backpack and pulled out my laptop.


My only mission: "I NEED TO WRITE THIS DOWN!"


I was sitting on a train travelling for 8-hours from Mildura to Melbourne, Australia. The rumbling sound of the train and open scenic desert views outside my window, created an incubator for presence to my surroundings. Being on the open road, physically moving forwards, gave me access my open-mode state for what was about to happen next.


Off script: Think, John Clease meets Artists Way. Don't mind the mini geek-out!


So there I was. Wide-eyed, like I'd just worked out the solution for how to harness solar power. I opened up Notes, and what came next was a free-flowing poem. Zero rules in terms of structure.


I was resigning from the exhausting constraints of perfectionism to embrace the freedom of flow. A welcome change. I had connected in with a message that was about to give me a powerful understanding of the essence a HIGH VALUE WOMAN. Here's what I wrote...




A HIGH VALUE WOMAN

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A HIGH VALUE WOMAN?


A high value woman has an inner certainty, trust and knowing.


Her internal compass is set to her true north.


She knows her worth, and therefore surrounds herself with those who know theirs too.


She has a presence about her that’s more than “this is what I’m doing”,


It’s who she is being in the process that shines through that empowers those around her.


She confidently integrates what she wants, with who she is intrinsically.


She embodies resourceful standards instead of external expectations,


knowing she can’t expect of others what she can’t give to herself.


This powerhouse is radically responsible for her choices, actions and decisions.


She is more than her story and circumstances,


steering clear of conversation centred on blame, victim or justification.


She drops the identities bestowed upon her that she once held onto,


and embraces ALL the dimensions of herself for her highest growth.


She respects others whole-heartedly, as she has respect for herself.


With this, comes a natural ability for meaningful connection,


building mutually beneficial and functional relationships.


She meets her own internal needs rather than seeking external validation or approval.


This allows her to have fulfilling, connected and interdependent relationships.


Everything is feedback so she trusts in the process,


and that there is no such thing as failure, only learning.


There is safety within her to be unapologetically herself.


She chooses to remove the walls around who she is, to step into her power.


By doing so, she unconsciously gives others permission to also do the same.


YOU ARE WORTHY OF AN AMAZING LIFE.

SPECIAL SHOUT OUT

Special shout out to all the amazing women out there that are owning who they are and pursuing the work that’s on their hearts.


This poem represents possibility, potential, fulfilment, love, compassion and kindness.


Each one of these women pictured is a mentor, a coach, a change-maker, a leader, an accountability buddy, a team mate, a friend and family...


These women here are an incredible example of how big of an impact 1x person can make in the world when they back themselves.


Each one has contributed to shaping the woman I’ve grown to be in various aspects of my life - through conscious conversations, sharing wisdom and by who they are being.


They are some of the most generous and loving people I know and they GET that the secret to living is giving.




A MESSAGE YOU FOR YOU


This one is from Jenna Kutcher: "When women support each other, incredible things happen." A reminder that we are the sum total of those we surround ourselves with.


And, we don't see the world as it is, we see the world as we are.


Ladies, give yourself permission today to embrace being a high value woman.

  • What can you do right now to activate and honour her?

  • What can you do to remind her that she's already in there?

  • Who are the women in your life you are most grateful for? What can you do to let them know how important they are to you?
