Once you’ve spent it,
and if you’ve spent it
badly, it’s gone forever.

Do what you need to do to keep your inner light shining.

Keep believing in yourself.

Give yourself a chance to admire that person in the mirror.

Even if you don't get to hear what a wonderful person you are...

Even if you're not getting the credit you deserve...


You know how much you do.

You know all the qualities that are a special part of you, all the good things you've done and the accomplishments you've made...

So when it seems like you're getting overlooked and under-appreciated find some reassurance and comfort in quietly saying this:

“I am aware that I am less than some people prefer me to be, but most people are unaware that I am so much more than what they see.”
