Never forget how precious you are; you are a gift to the world.
Everyone knows that you can get a good gift, a great gift and sometimes a shoddy gift. So too it is with us. We can bring gladness, joy, happiness and love, or we can bring ugliness, hatred, and disillusionment to the table. When you go out into the world, remember this.
We are made to shine in all our glory; like a brightly shining star, we are a gift to the world. Look inside every day before you set out and choose to be a great gift, one that brings smiles and joy to anyone you speak to and meet.
Share your talents and your time. Let others know they are safe and loved when they are in your presence. Do this, and you will shine like those stars, shining as brightly as the rising sun.
Open doors for others, help when you can, and lift another when they are down. Offer words of encouragement, support and love. Treat everyone you meet with respect, no matter their role or age in life.
Every morning when you rise, determine what you will put in the box, the ‘present’ that is you. Look in the mirror and decide that whatever happens, you will be grateful for the opportunity to be a blessing to someone else and be the best that you can be.
At the end of the day, ponder over how you presented yourself, how you participated in others’ lives. Could you have done better? Would you do anything differently? Were there missed opportunities? When you made someone smile or laugh, how did it make you feel?
The joy is in the giving, and the gifts freely given are always received in return. We may not see it immediately, but we will reap what we sow, so make sure to plant love and kindness and not weeds of hatred and anger.
Sometimes, it is in knowing that we are a gift to others that enables us to endure the hard times. We are given an exceptional strength so we can continue to uplift and inspire, help and love one another.
So, if life gets you down, look within and smile at the memories of the gifts given. Never forget that you are a gift to the world.
