I have noticed that daily we meet moments that steal our self-esteem. They are inevitable. Pick up any magazine, you see people who look healthier, skinnier, or better dressed than you are. Look around. There is always someone who seems smarter, another more self-assured, still another more talented. In fact, each day we are reminded that we lack certain talents, that we make mistakes, that we do not excel in all things…. & amidst all this, it is easy to believe that we do not quite measure up in the great scheme of things, but are inferior in some secret way. If you base your self-esteem, your feeling of self-worth, on anything outside the quality of your heart, your mind, or your soul, you have based it on a very shaky footing. So you and I are not perfect in form or physical figure. So you and I are not the richest, the wisest, the wittiest… So what?
