Some of this is pulled from and inspired by an oooooooold blog post of mine (not here) when I was just a bloggy baby. I was hunting for the Sarah Dessen quote you'll see in here and reread my post. I decided to bring some of the text over, deleting out the personal stuff from almost 10 years ago and adding a tiny bit, because it really is a nice message to remember for 2013. (Note: the post was aimed at a friend of mine going through a tough time back then!)
We are all priceless.
One-of-a-kind masterpieces-- there's no one like
you in the world, and never will be. Remember that. Because, being
priceless, you deserve the very best.
"The truth was I knew, after all
those flat January days, that I deserved better. I deserved I love yous
and kiwi fruits and flowers and warriors coming to my door, besotted with love.
I deserved pictures of my face in a million expressions... I deserved to grow
and to change, to become all the girls I could ever be over the course of my
life, each one better than the last." --Sarah Dessen, Someone Like
We're not perfect. I know I'm definitely not perfect. I may not be model-beautiful.
Hell, I might not be beautiful at all (I've had those "Is it the way I look?"
moments... I've had good and bad days). I have a personality that probably
grates-- I babble and bounce perkily and talk too much about myself. I can be
timid and shy and afraid, I'm proud and stubborn and sometimes dumber that I
really sound. I cry at toilet paper commercials when I'm in a mood, throw
pointe shoes, and have something of an ego. I wax poetic. I'm
overly apologetic. I can be obsessive about my weight. I care too much. I dress
weird and talk weird. But, I still know I deserve the best for me. I deserve
someone who... well, fits what Sarah Dessen wrote. I have incredible worth.
So do you. Don't sell yourself short.
That's my economic lesson for the
You = priceless (or at least incredibly expensive)
And 2013 is going to be amazing.
