Knowing your worth… priceless!

I heard this story recently and knew I had to share it. It’s a very simple story but it demonstrates why knowing exactly who you are and what your value is, is so important.

Sometimes it’s not easy to put yourself first or believe in yourself, and that can be for a myriad of reasons. Perhaps you think it’s selfish. Perhaps you don’t think you deserve it. But being sure of who you are and what you’re worth to yourself and others is life changing. So be sure you’re always number one on your list; here’s why…

A speaker was presenting to an audience. He started off his presentation by holding up a £20 note and he asked, “Who would like this £20 note?” Hands started going up.

Then he said, “I am going to give this £20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the £20 note up. He then asked, “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air. “Well”, he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. “Now who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air. “My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson”, he said, “No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth £20.”

Sometimes in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. Sometimes we may feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless…. and especially to those who love you.

The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE.

“You are very special indeed – Don’t EVER forget it.”

There are so many things that I love and that make me happy. I can say all the usual stuff like my family and being a mum (which of course I love), but just a few of my favourite things are; CROCHET - I'm not the greatest but I love it. GIN - now there I consider myself a connoisseur of gin. COOKING - I'm a feeder what can I say! STAR-GAZING - hands down the best place to do this is South Africa. The skies are so dark, no light pollution, perfect. Whiles we're on the subject... South Africa - one of my favourite places on earth and my adopted home. Just a few of the things that really really raise my vibe!
