I know you’ve heard that a lot. And some of you say, “Baloney” because you don’t feel special or unique. But when I tell you that you are unique, I mean something (this time) that you may not have heard before.
You are unique because no one, NO ONE, is experiencing life right now in the same way you are. Even if you are sharing a ride at Disneyland in the Haunted Mansion. Even if you are sledding in the snow with friends. Even if you have just been in a car crash with your best friend.
You may have shared the experience with another person, sharing the space and the event, but each of you “experienced” the event in your own ways. Your partner had a different startle in the Haunted Mansion ride. Your friends responded differently to, or didn’t even notice, the cold and stinging snowflakes hitting your face. Your best friend had shis own thoughts and felt the pain of the collision differently.
You are unique. You are you and no one else can be you, feel as you, respond as you to situations.
Look around you. Smell the air. Listen to the sounds. You are unique. No one else in the whole world is having this exact same experience as you right this minute.
So revel in that uniqueness. Celebrate your uniqueness. Explore it and exploit it. Make you even more you. Be mindful. Waken to yourself and be self-aware. Glory in the you that is you.
