Your Value

To the amazing person that you are,
on this day I want you to know:

You are one-of-a-kind.
Like no other being that has ever been or ever will be,
And that's something to celebrate,
For the world is a different place because of you.

Did you know that your smile can change a day
And your love can change a life?

In fact, every life you come in contact with
you leave changed forever.
The change may be big or it may be small,
But their life will always be different because of you.

Never underestimate the little things in life -
Their effect is far greater than you even suspect.

You are more powerful than you know, more loved than you feel,
And of more value to others than you can guess.

Life is too short for self-pity and too long for blame.

Always remember that you are the source of love in your life,
For love is who you truly are.

Regardless of whoever you've chosen to be in the past
You can always choose to be something completely
new in this moment.

And most importantly...
You do not need to be, do or have a single other thing
In order to be perfect,
Not even if it's being happy, doing what you love
Or having your dream life,
For you are perfect right now, just as you are.

Thank you for being you!
