I was going to post something different today but for the past few days, a fellow blogger friend was going through a rough patch. This is for her and for others who may not realize how WE ALL MATTER. WE ARE ALL LOVED – each and every single one of us. Deep down inside, in our unconscious mind, we may not realize we are worthy. And when someone tells you that you matter…that you are loved, it hits a cord within you. You may feel uneasy or emotional or immediately respond with a negative answer. That’s when you know this message is for you.
These two words are powerful. I came upon the following You Matter Manifesto on Angela Maiers website.
The YOU MATTER Manifesto is a call to action. Before we can convince anyone else that we matter, we must first convince ourselves. You are called upon to acknowledge and put to use the gifts that have been entrusted to you. Empower yourself and realize the importance of contributing to the world by living your genius. Mattering is a process, not an event. It has no expiration date; it’s a new way of life. Knowing that we matter is essential to our existence. Consider this Manifesto an acknowledgement of your significance and that….YOU MATTER.
1. You are Enough!
Do you know what it takes to make a difference in this world?
You don’t have to be rich or famous. No special knowledge or skills are needed. Whether you are young or old or in-between, you matter.
2. You Have Influence
To acknowledge that you can change the world is overwhelming. Yet all of us have the ability to begin changing the world by contributing our genius to solve the world’s problems.
