^^Take a look at this quote.
For me, that’s what gives me life and motivation. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have much to give, like I’m just an average person like everyone else. But reading this reminds me that it’s not so bleak. There’s not one single person that is just your average person who’s like everyone else. We’re all unique and we all have something special to give to the world.
I’m sure you’ve heard something like this a million times, but have you really ever given in a thought. There is not one single person that has ever existed that is exactly like you.
What this means is that you have something special to bring to the world that no other human being can. The problem is that we’re always so caught up in what other people are bringing, or what other people expect us to bring, that we lose sight of what we have that is unique. I encourage you to take a long hard look at yourself, think about what things you do that make your soul come to life, think about what you enjoy and what makes you happy. Think about what things you’re strangely good at. All those things together, those are what make you special. That’s what the world is missing, until you share your gift with the world.
For example, all throughout my teenage years I felt pretty left out because it seemed as though everyone knew what they were good at. Sadly, for a long time I didn’t really think I was good at anything. Now, as I’ve grown I can see that I’m good at a lot of things but many of them are not what one would conventionally call “talents”. For example, I can’t help but be positive all the time and almost everyone I encounter anywhere in the world has told me that I smile so often and that it makes them feel happy. It’s never something I’ve tried to attain, it’s just the way I am. I’m kind, I smile and I’m very positive in almost all situations. I used to get jealous that friends of mine were good at drawing or writing or dance or intellect. But now I’m able to see past those limits and look at what’s special about myself and what I bring to the world. I truly feel that one of my gifts to the world is my kindness and positivity. I think too, that it’s a pretty big achievement. To affect someone so much with kindness or a simple smile such that they are changed by it in some way. Perhaps they might feel a little bit more positive about their day, or maybe it just feels nice to have someone be kind to you for a moment. Either way, I’m proud of this unique gift.
I hope you take a good look at yourself and figure out what it is that makes you special. No matter what, even if you can’t pinpoint a specific talent, you should know something important. As long as you are genuinely yourself, you are bringing something special and important to the world, that otherwise, the world wouldn’t have.
And that my friends, is a beautiful thing.
