If you think about it, diversity is the only true thing we all have in common.
Though we do have certain traits and characteristics that we share, we’re mostly very different from one another.
In reality each one of us is completely unique.
One-of-a-kind, limited edition, ultimate luxury package!
No other living (or dead!) human being has (or had) your combination of appearance, talents, skills and idiosyncrasies.
It's this creative and magical mix of ingredients that make for our originality.
There's no way this is a random event! How can it be?
Whether you believe in a Creator of all things or not, nature is the perfect example of how structured, intricate and therefor intentional the Universe is.
And we are an integral part of nature. We're meant to be different!
It is because we are unique and incomparable that we all can contribute to this world in a way no other person can.
Your uniqueness is not only your gift to the world but it also has a purpose to it!
The way you can contribute is exactly what the world needs from you.
Wow, that's powerful stuff, right?
And you wanna know why?
Because one can speak your words. No one can serve the way you do. No one can touch hearts in the same way that you can. No one one can impact others in your own way. No one can color outside the lines just like you.
Knowing this not only sets you free of comparison syndrome but also brings forward a sense of entitlement. The world needs YOU in all your singleness!
But in the end it's up to you...
You can spend time and energy trying (and failing!) to be someone else, living a life that is not yours to live, denying others the good that only your uniqueness could bring.
Or you can choose to fully express yourself and allow your real power to come forth in a way that others can benefit from it, and in the meanwhile, create a more fulfilling and happy life for yourself.
So, hear me out.
It is time to say yes to yourself and start embracing who you really are in your essence, accepting that what you may consider to be flaws are in fact the rainbow itself, where the rain and the light get together to create a moment that never cease to amaze us.
