Value can change a lot on how you see things… the more value you put into something will increase your respect or care of it. If you pay a lot for a pair of shoes out of your hard earned money you aren’t going to go run through mud with them. On the other hand, if you get a hand-me-down wore out shirt you aren’t going to be careful painting the house in it, even if at one time someone paid a lot for it. What do you value? Do you only value the material things that cost a pretty penny?

I have seen many children and teens in today’s society who have lost their sense of value. They don’t respect their parents who work hard to provide for them.. they don’t understand how expensive things really are and just expect to get them.
What is your value? How do you see yourself? Do you allow people to use you? Seeing yourself with high value does not mean being coincided.. it doesn’t mean putting others down who are less fortunate. It really is just having respect for yourself. Knowing what you deserve and setting goals to get them.. you are gold! Don’t ever let anyone make you feel like fools gold!
Life has a funny way of showing you where your energy should go. Sometimes the things and people you held a lot of value and confidence in don’t turn around and show you the same. Value depreciates as we know in cars and material things. Value of a person should only deepen and grow. But! This isn’t a perfect world is it?
Sometimes the lack of value you are shown can make you grow. It can kick you into gear so that you value yourself! If you can’t appreciate your own value no one else can, because you won’t know what you are worth. This crazy world puts value into a lot of petty and insignificant things. YOU are not insignificant! No matter how you feel.
I’m sure when a diamond is being formed out of coal it feels pretty insignificant(if it could feel that is 😂).. that it could just be burned for fuel at any moment… but you know what.. one day.. someone will take the time to dig.. and carefully remove this beautifully pressed and aged stone. Holding it up to appreciate just how it shines and reflects all the colors of light.
Value isn’t always about paying for things.. sometimes it’s about waiting. How can you ever truly value anything if you just wake up and it’s all there. You will lose value and gain expectation. Be like the diamond… no matter how much you are pressured and kept in the dark continue to grow… become amazing… because one day.. someone will find you and take you where the world can see all that hard work.
YOU ARE VALUABE!
