Cherish Your Uniqueness
February 17, 2012
Have you ever stopped to think what an awesome, exceptional, and remarkable human being you are?
Of all the people who ever lived on this earth, not one of them is just like you. No one who ever lived had the abilities, limits, talents, appearance, happiness, sorrows, opportunities, burdens, and possibilities that you have.
No one has exactly the same thoughts as you do. No one seeks exactly as you do. No one prays just as you do. No one loves all the same people that love you. Even the ones who laugh like you, don't sneeze like you.
The ones who cry like you, don't have the same sorrow you do. The ones who smile like you, don't know the same joys that you do.
No one before and no one to come has your gifts. You weren't meant to be like anyone else. You don't need to change to show that you're different. You were meant to be special. At no time in all history
will the same things be going on in someone else's mind, soul, and spirit, as with you this very moment.
If you did not exist, there would be a gap in our lives, a change in our history, a hole in creation, and something missing from God's plan. Cherish your uniqueness. It is a gift given only to you.
No one can speak your words. No one can cry your tears. No one can impart your cheer and joy. No one can smile your smile. No one can bring your unique impact to another human heart. No one can take your place.
The gift of uniqueness was given you to tell about and to enjoy. Let it inform and inspire you. Reach out to others with your life. Share of yourself along life's pathway. You are God's gift and unique to this world.
