The Value of You

Today someone needs to look at you, really look at you, take a good hard look at you and realize how truly valuable, and amazing, you are. Someone needs to look beyond the makeup, the clothes, the hairstyle or lack thereof, and see the light deep within you, that shines brightest in your darkest hours. Image result for round eyeglasses

Someone needs to realize that you are beautiful inside, that you are worth buying flowers for, that you are worth making breakfast in bed for, that you are priceless. Someone needs to understand that you are complicated because of everything you’ve been through. It isn’t baggage. Those wrinkles and scars and stretchmarks are your badges of honor for surviving every single challenge that was thrown your way.

She dried her hands and headed toward the play area to check on her little girl. The toddler was nowhere to be found. Frantically the mother started searching the house, and then the yard, calling the little girl’s name. She called the neighbors, and then her husband at work, and then the police in a panic. A police dog, enlisted in the search, kept barking at the hall closet near the front door to the house, and the police began to be suspicious that there were Continue reading Create Your Space
