WORTH... of value
Even under pressure this kid held his ground. There was something he knew that she didn't. Even at this young age, he knew something of his worth. Do you know your worth?
By the time we reach adulthood we have a bit of an idea of whether we feel loved and valued and as we travel further along the road of life and we hit a few potholes, valleys and sometimes the odd crevasse, the idea of how much we think we are valued can take a battering. Divorce, bereavement, missed opportunities and mistakes compound.
Perhaps worth and value is not determined by our education (or lack of), a job title, who we marry, how we look or even how we feel about ourselves. Is it possible each one of us has worth and value irrespective of whether we feel loved? Do we have worth simply because we have life?
What a privilege to get up each day, thankful, hopeful and knowing that no matter what might be said to us or even not said to us, the approval of others is not our goal and our life is important, valuable and cherished. Just a thought.
