FOOD FOR THOUGHT: OUR UNIQUENESS, WHAT MAKES YOU UNIQUE?
My dear readers, I took a few weeks off from writing just to concentrate on myself,
more learning, zen, refresh, renew; we all need that time away from everything.
During my brief time from writing, I was plagued by many topics which I will be
writing on daily. One of the things I thought about this morning is the aspect of
our uniqueness. How unique do you really feel? Apart from the intellectual
understanding that we all throw around, but, how often do you feel this way
of yourself that you are really special and separate from everyone else
You see, part of human confidence and ability to deal with society, our community
in a way that is balanced relies on confidence. Our confidence is shaken if we do not
know that we do not need to try too hard to impress, or be who we are not just to
Today’s Food For Thought, what do you know you really have within you that is
your thing, that you know gives you that edge in life. That thing that in spite of
all the short-comings, failures, negatives, things you are still working on, things you
wish you had, there is an aspect of you, that makes you smile. If you don’t know it,
spend some time in meditation, self-examination and discover it. It is your birth right
to know what God gave you that you should be aware of and take pride and comfort in.
You know, for some people they take pride and comfort in the fact that no matter
how broke, sad, disappointed, shy in character, bad at dancing or cooking, they take
know that they are great painters, a model thanks God daily for her incredible height,
a dancer may not have the best voice, but if all they have is their ability to dance, they
know that is what sets them apart, there are people we called nerds in school, awkward
glasses-wearing kids, but no amount of awkwardness can take away their brain power,
and they take pride in that. Some people may not be as easy on the eyes aesthetically, but
they have the voice of an angel, THAT is their thing. Some people might not be as tall, elegant,
handsome like models but they write the best stories. Some people have the ability
to draw in a crowd, charisma………you get the idea.
So my question to you, you may not have THIS which you envy in someone else,
but you have THAT. What is it about YOU that you are proud of? Find it, nurture
it, it is your secret weapon against elements in life that want to take you down. It
may also be your source of greatest success.
