Not because you accomplished something great
Or even something small for that matter.
Not because your boss is really happy with your work
Or you pleased another person.
Not because everything in your life is terrific and free from stress…
Just because you live.
Just because you breathe, think and feel.
Just because you are unique and precious.
Just because there is a place in the world that has been made specifically for you.
Knowing that you’re okay…
Comes from within.
It’s part of believing,
Not just with your mind, but with your heart.
It’s about knowing in the same way that you know your best friend.
Once you understand this,
No circumstance, person or word can ever take it away from you.
Hold on to what is yours.
