$20.00

Found this entry when I was flipping through my diary and thought I was share it here.

$20.00
Sometimes we just need to be reminded.

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill.
In the room, he asked,

"Who would like this $20 bill?"

Hands started going up.

He said, "I'm going to give this $20 to one of you, but first, let me do this."

He proceeded to crumple up the $20 bill.

He then asked, "Who still wants it?"

Still, the hands were up in the air.

"Well," he replied, "What if I do this?"

And then 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 up into the air.

We have all learned a valuable lesson from this.

No matter what has been done to the money,
we still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.
It was still worth $20.00.

Many a times in our life,
we are dropped, crumpled and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and circumstances that come our way.

We 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 to those who DO LOVE YOU.

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

"You are SPECIAL - Don't EVER forget it."

Count your blessings,
not your problems.

And remember,
Amateurs built the ARK.
Professionals built the Titanic.
