Inspiring story I found and wanted to share:
A wise man, to a large group of people said, “I am going to give this $20 bill to one of you but first, let me do this.”
He crumpled up the $20 dollar bill, then asked, “Who still wants it?”
All hands raised up in the air.
“Well”, he continued, “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. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.00.”

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

Here’s the part where you tell me: Have you ever felt worthless? What did it take to remind you, that you are not?
