here's a boost, i hope it brings a smile to your face <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 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 $20 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, we 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. Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE. You are special - Don`t EVER forget it."

Very profound!
value is perspective.

A glass of water can be worth $1,000 to the person dying of thirst in the desert!

So value can also increase depending on the circumstance.

We should all value oursleves. To the world we may be one person, but to one person we may be the world.

try not to frown because you never know who might be falling in love with your smile.

Thanks for sharing the story I like it and will pass it on. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

That's a very touching story. Thanks for it.
I agree with Little Lamb. We do increase in value evertime we undergo hardship.

And I think there are only 2 people in this world who will know that well enough. Thats you and your soulmate. But it doesn't matter as long as you know who you are.

g'Luck!
