Our Uniqueness

People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering. - St. Augustine

When was the last time you really looked at yourself and saw how extraordinary you really are? I’m not talking about solving the problems of the world, but of your talents and strengths and how, without doing anything special you touch other people’s lives in some way?

One can only demonstrate their strengths when they’re aware of them and the first step is to take notice.

It is the child in all of us that creates our uniqueness….the parts of us that we don’t restrain or erect barriers around. It’s letting the best of us come out and play. Try it and see how freeing it is. Let your creativity come to the fore and watch as your whole being takes a deep breath and plunges in with both feet.
