We are valuable; period. Enough said. End of story. But society doesn’t make us feel that way.
Society tries to put pressures on each of us to measure up, perform, obtain more. I don’t know how you believe. But, the one thing that makes sense to me is that we die the same way we are born; meaning we are born naked and we die the same way. We can not take the stuff (recognition, possessions, people, titles, or wealth) with us.
As long as we have a heart beating, we have purpose. With purpose brings value. Every life is valuable, not one more so than another.
Dear Caregiver, please remember we are valuable no matter what. Never forget those we care for are valuable no matter their state. People are precious.
Why are people precious in my belief system? Because not one of us is the same. We are valuable by being, nothing more.
I remember a pastor’s wife told me one day in a very wise manner, “We aren’t measured by the brand on our pocket. If any of us (regardless of our social status, followers on the internet, financial well being, or ANYTHING), does not wash our butts – we stink!
Why do some people reign superior in their speech, actions, and mind? Maybe they fart glitter, sweat sparkles, and poop twenty dollar bills, but I strongly doubt it. Treating others less than is not a sign of superiority, but a warning of insecure feelings on the inside.
It is Joyce Meyer that says, “Hurting people, hurts people.” When others are cold, or incessantly inappropriate in their derogatory speech toward others; it does not show the people they are picking on are “wrong.” No for goodness sake, THEY are the ones showing their A$$ets.
My parents modeled for me to treat the custodian the same as the CEO. Let us not favor others for their social status, talents, or any such thing. May we all be kind, period. Because we are all valuable. No one less than anyone else.
Consider this: Is the President of United States more valuable than the secretaries, lobbyists, custodians, and such? I think not! Without the “Helping” roles, our fine country would go down the drain. The White House, sure would not stay white for long (chipping paint, rotting wood).
Please caregiver, show your loved ones the same respect you would want them to show you. In our country, USA, I am concerned there is an epidemic of abuse toward those who are unique, (to those who might be labeled “special needs).” Too often I read on social media of bus drivers, hitting Unique students, or police officers abruptly dumping children to the floor.
I know there is a place for holds, keeping the individual and others safe. But, please remember everyone matters. Everyone is a gift.
Seeing others as important, precious, and valuable makes life more grand. Life is brighter when we edify one another. Everyone has a new sense of wonder, even a heightened respect of, “I wonder where this will go?”
Give everyone the same chance. Isn’t this the message of tolerance? The epitome of tolerance is inclusion. Being fair, does not mean everyone gets the exact same portion. A wise saying states, “Fairness is giving everyone what they need to succeed.”
Let us empower one another. Be kind. Elevate each other. Pay it forward. Life if far too short to be mean hearted, lemon sucking, cruel humans. Live to give. You are valuable. I am valuable too. We have nothing to prove.
Show up and be. Value each other. Value ourselves. Everyone is a gift. Everyone matters. Period. We are valuable.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please come back again soon. Blessings to you and yours today and always,
I live in Columbus, Ohio USA, grown up here all my life. I love yoga, walking, riding bike, reading, bargain shopping, serving at church. Usually though, I’m napping in a doctor’s office waiting area with one or two of the Fantastic Four Children. My passion is helping other families with extra health, behavioral, and learning issues like mine. Let’s enjoy life… TOGETHER. It’s more fun that way =)!
