I get this in email some while ago. I think it is good to remember and think of.

$20.00 Note

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00
note.
In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 note?" Hands
started

going up. He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but
first,
let me do this." He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up. He then
asked,

"Who still wants it?" Still the hands were up in the air. "Well," he
replied, "What if I do this?" And 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 into the air.
My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter
what I
did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in
value.

It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped,
crumpled,
and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the
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 love
you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but
by
WHO WE ARE. You are special - Don't EVER forget it.

Andrei, I liked this story, and it is indeed so very true, that we lose sight of our true worth sometimes.

It is good to think of these things,

Androsh!


This is a great post! Makes me think, and that is not an easy thing for anyone to do! A valuable lesson that I am saving in my File Cabinet. Thanks, Little Bro,.
