You Are Priceless (Posted by Priya Deelchand)

My dearest friends,

Hope you are doing great!!!

Today I would like to share a nice story with you. 

A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up 
a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked:

"Who would like this $20 bill?" 

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, you 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. To those who love you, you are

The worth of our lives come not in what we do or who we know 
but by who we are!

Much love,
