Who are you and why are you here?
Maybe that’s the first question when we encountered the bitter and painful facts in life, an important factor in seeing ourselves is to understand our intrinsic sense of value. Our sense of value cannot be based on our successes or failures, how somebody else treats us, or how popular we can be. It is not something we earn, indeed, we cannot earn it. God built value into us when He created us.
We can always have a second, third, forth, fifth and other chances to always try our best in our life. The approval to be a better person is not only based on our achievements, but from the fact that we are a unique individual after all and someone must have seen the best in you. There’s nothing you can do or nobody else can do, that will ever change your value in the sight of your heart. But in order to have this value inside of you, you have to do your part, quit over-analyzing your faults, and stop taking the inventory of everything wrong with you. Everyone made mistakes in their life, be kind to yourself, then…you have to move on. Don’t become overly concerned of the fact that you are not changing as fast as you expected. Stay focused on what you can become, and God will get you to the place that you want to be.
A single turn can make a big change in someone’s life, a simple wish before you close your eyes at night has the ability to change your whole point of view when you wake up the next morning. Failures can build up your courage and excel your life to the sky’s limit if you want to, never underestimate the power of dream, and you shall have something that nobody has, the ability to value your self and your life.
As the Greatest creation, you have something to offer this world that nobody else has, that nobody else can be. Your sense of value should be solely on the fact that you are special, so learn to be happy and cherish the value of your existence in this world, remember that you are never alone, cherish the time when you were someone to somebody, be grateful for the things that made you smile, if you have these thoughts, you will never see disappointments and failures as a burden, but as a remembrance that you were built by the Greatest Creator and you have a special great value in YOU.
