The Uniqueness of You


Try to answer these questions to yourself:

* What is my talent or skill?

* What is my hobby?

* What am I good at?

If the questions above seem daunting. Perhaps you can ask yourself this:

What skill do I want to learn?

The point is, there is a uniqueness in you or a potential waiting to be unleashed.

And it’s for the world to benefit from.

You may have a talent or skill, but think it very small or insignificant. That doesn’t matter because it can always grow if you let it. If it can make a difference in another’s life, no matter how small you may think it to be, it can make a difference in many lives.

Our individual uniqueness is there to be shared. If we are not willing to share it, the least chance there is for us to grow.

Just yesterday I was drawn for some reason to read about Joyce Kilmer’s poem, “Trees.” Many criticized the poem as being sophomoric. Yet, it has been one of the most recited poems in the English-speaking world. I don’t know if it was translated to other languages, but I’m not discounting the possibility.

Who cares about the critics? Perhaps they even inadvertently contributed to the poem’s popularity.

You will not be able to please everyone, but don’t let this stop you from discovering and sharing to the world your uniqueness. 

And don’t do it because it might earn you some money. If it does, that will be great. But do it because the world needs a touch of beauty here and there.

You are beautiful! Believe it, grow in it, and share it!

Oh, by the way, you can read about Joyce Kilmer in Wikipedia here:
