There comes a moment where you must place a value you on yourself and everything that is associated with you. I want to take a moment to remind you that you are priceless. You are a unique person. There has never been and will never be anyone like you ever. The way you look, your personality, mannerisms, passions, likes, dislikes, talents, gifts and much more are unique to you. People may try to replicate you but there will never be another you. That is why is it so important that you make your mark on this world and the world needs you and all your uniqueness.
You must remember that you are the prize. This applies in any romantic, professional, familial, platonic and other relationship. You do not have to beg anyone for attention. You do not have to manipulate and convince someone to spend time with you. You are worthy of the best that this life must offer and that means you do not accept scraps but take your place at the table expecting a five-course meal. I can have this soapbox moment because I used to waste my time, talents, gifts and more on people who did not value me.
We all have poured our money, time, talent, gifts and more into people who did not deserve it. The good news is we can learn from our mistakes and apply our lessons to new and better paths of living a great life. I am living a life that I did not even know was possible. I have an inner circle of people who can tell me the truth in love, celebrate my mountaintop victories, dwell with me in my valleys, wipe away my tears, give me grace and mercy while giving me unconditional acceptance and love. I am also able to do the same not out of obligation but out of true unconditional love in return. I have healed to a point that I can be a great friend, leader, Christian and much more nit just to myself but to the people around me.
There is nothing wrong with taking regular inventory of your inner circle, your heart, your calendar and more to make sure that you are utilizing all that has been entrusted to you. Your gifts and talents are not for yourself only. The world needs you and your uniqueness. I would encourage you to ask yourself if you are living your best life? Are you just surviving or just making it? That is not living life. We have our moments when things are not great but that should never be the norm. You should be living a life where you cannot wait to see what will unfold next. I am excited for us as we live our best life. We are priceless!
