“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
~ Marcus Aurelius
Do you believe your life is valuable?
Sometimes we forget to find the value in ourselves. We believe it is most necessary to have value outside of ourselves, a large home, a well taken care of family, but we don’t put the emphasis on what we should value, ourselves.
The journey on this earth is full of uncertainties. We are bound by our lack of control in the outside realm. Losing a job, a loved one, a home, a friend.. We must surrender to the world’s movement… But in the meantime make sure to value your existence. Don’t get sidetracked and forget that taking care of yourself, your body, your mind, your soul, this is precious living.
It need not be a huge luxury, like a new car, but rather a simple and regular reminder of your value as a soul in this world. Maybe this for you is a trip to get ice cream. Or a slow walk. A small bouquet of fresh flowers, or clean sheets. But remind yourself daily, when you wake up, or during lunch, or before you get to sleep at night … You’re here now. Your reality is that we don’t know how long we have or when things will change. So find it in the here, the now, this moment to embrace yourself and see yourself as valuable. You are a soul here with reason and intention. You are full of light and love. You have worth and you are uniquely your own.
