We Are All Worthy

I don’t know anything much about the company producing this video, so please don’t take this as any sort of recommendation, but I do appreciate the sentiments contained within it.

Lots of us have things that we’ve wanted to do, or that we’re passionate about, or that would make us happy, that we don’t do because we’ve told ourselves we couldn’t.
