Very few things suck more in life than feeling down on yourself. The lack of motivation, the feeling that you can never do anything right, and the belief that no matter what you do and accomplish in life, you are never going to amount to anything. Yeah, these feeling Suck, with a capital “S.”
But! I want you to know that no matter how down, saddened, or minuscule you are feeling, you are much more valuable than you will ever know. Even when you might not see it, trust me, you will always be more valuable than you give yourself credit for.
HOW DO I KNOW YOU ARE MORE VALUABLE THAN YOU THINK?
You know that saying, “You are one in a million?” Generally, it is used to cheer someone up, and to show that person how valuable they truly are. Sounding familiar now? Yeah, we have all been told this.
I know that when somebody would say this to me, I would become even more down on myself. Here I was ticked off because I was different, and now somebody was telling me that I was even more different that I thought? They meant well, but I didn’t want to be one in a million. I wanted to be just like others.
But the truth is, you and I, we aren’t one in a million. All of those times that somebody told you and I that we were a one in a million type person, they were lying to us.
Now here is where it gets fun. I am not belittling any of us, and I am not saying that we are any less than being that one in a million person. Actually, it’s quite the opposite. All of the times that somebody told you that you are one of a kind, that is the truth. Forget one in one million, you are one in 400 trillion. Didn’t see that one coming, now did you?
WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT
You have a gift. No, I am not just blowing smoke out of the water, or sugar coating any amount of pain that you might be feeling. You really do have a gift. Whatever that gift might be, only you will know. And the only way that you will ever find that gift, is if you let your own light shine, and be the unique and truly beautiful person that you are meant to be.
No matter what you might think, there is not one person who will ever be the same as any other human being that will ever exist. We are all different in our own unique and individual ways. The ones who love life are the ones who embrace their uniqueness and truly let it shine. The ones who don’t love life, well, odds are they are the ones trying to be somebody they aren’t. Somebody that they will never be.
See, no matter how badly you or I want to be like somebody else, we are never going to be. All of those people that you and I look up to, what do you think got them to where they are today? I can tell you that it isn’t the fact that they replicated their life to mimic the life of somebody else. No, it is because they embraced who they are, dug deep within their hearts, and found what their own calling was in life.
THE MAIN POINT
What I am trying to say is that you, I, and everybody that has and will ever walk this earth, we are all beautiful. Some way, some shape, and some form, we are all different, we are all unique, we all have things that we are good at, we all have things that we struggle with, and we are all beautiful.
Don’t waste YOUR life trying to be somebody that you aren’t. This is your one life to live. Embrace the fact that nobody will ever be like you, find what separates you from every other human being on this planet, and let your light shine.
Follow all of your wildest dreams, and live your best life!
