You Are Worthy

You_Are_WorthyI found this beautiful poem to be a great reminder that it is our uniqueness that makes us special, to keep our hopes alive, and to cherish our life.

 
I love the first 2 lines: “Do not undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others.”
How often do we compare ourselves without even realizing that we are hurting our self-worth by doing so?  Let’s stop comparing and  remember: You Are Worthy.
 
You Are Worthy

Do not undermine your worth
By comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
That each of us is special.

Do not set your goals
By what other people deem important.
Only you know
What is best for you.

Do not take for granted
The things closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
For without them,
Life is meaningless.

Do not let your life
Slip through your fingers
By living in the past
Nor for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
You live ALL the days of your life.

Do not give up
When you still have something to give.
Nothing is really over
Until the moment you stop trying.

Don’t be afraid to admit
That you are less than perfect.
It is this fragile thread
That binds us to each other.

Do not be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
That we learn how to be brave.

Do not shut love out of your life
By saying it is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love
Is to give love;
The fastest way to lose love
Is to hold it too tightly;
The best way to keep love
Is to give it wings.

Do not dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams
Is to be without hope;
To be without hope
Is to be without purpose.

Don’t forget, a person’s greatest
emotional need is to feel appreciated.

Don’t be afraid to learn.
Knowledge is weightless,
a treasure you can always carry easily.

Don’t use time or words carelessly.
Neither can be retrieved.

Do not run through life
So fast that you forget
Not only where you have been,
But also where you are going.

Life is not a race,
But a journey
To be savoured each step of the way.
