We are all VALUABLE.
Unfortunately, our value has the ability to disintegrate over time, if we let it.
Our value decreases when we don’t stand up for what we believe in, and for who we are.
Our value decreases when we lose sight of where we are, where we want to go, and what we accept instead.
Our value decreases when we go along with things we aren’t comfortable with, hoping that the risk of pain isn’t real. We hope for the best, and we place our value on a platter.
What you place on the platter can either be cherished or used. It can be appreciated or dismissed. It can be sharpened or it can become dull.
If you value yourself, others will value you.
If your value depends on others, you’ll always be left expecting more.
I’ve recently discovered that my value was determined when I was created. It took me a long time to see it, but it’s always been there. Sometimes, actually several times, I left it on the platter. I didn’t know it was mine. I thought it belonged to the people who gathered around it.
The day I realized it was mine, I adored it. Cherished it. Treated it (myself) differently.
I know it will never fade the way it did in the picture.
It has been with me from the beginning even though I was unaware. It will stay with me until I leave this world and enter eternity.
Vibrant and Clear.
