Do You Realize Your Value?

Lately, I have been thinking about what makes a person valuable?  I believe that we have “worth” and “value” simply because we exist.  I believe we are children of God and he loves each of us unconditionally.  I came across this story a few years ago and it really made an impact on me… I wanted to share and give you a visual.

How many of you would be interested in having this $100 bill?

Would you STILL want it now?  It has stains on it…..  it’s not perfect…

Oh great… it has wrinkles AND stains….  still interested???

Stained, wrinkled, and torn…..  UGH!!!  Do you still want it???

Of course we want the $100!   WHY???  

No matter what was done to the money, you still want it because…  it did not decrease in VALUE!

“Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt because of the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless because of what “others” say. But no matter what has happened, or will happen, you will never lose your value. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who do love you.”  Source

Obviously, we know that we are not perfect… we are going to make mistakes. Sometimes things will happen that are out of our control. My hope is that we can use these opportunities to learn and grow. Be aware of the things in your life that ARE working and acknowledge your successes!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!
