Wow!!! Its really been a long time. I wouldn’t exactly say I have been busy but maybe I have. Anyways I’m here now. I just wish I could keep this going. I just met a friend, her name is… Actually non of your business… Lol… Anyways she kind of inspired me to visit my blog again… I wrote this particular piece about 8years ago. August 26, 2007 to be precise, I have added little additions to it now tho. I hope its meaningful to you!
JUST BE YOU!!!
Before you think I am trying to insult you, I am not. I am asking a very serious question, do you know what makes you special? I won’t be surprised if someone said – nothing. I am just like every other person on the street. I actually totally disagree with you though, no two people are alike. But it amazing how we so easily forget this fact.
One of lessons I ever learnt so far was that nobody can do me like me and that has contributed to me becoming the confident person I believe I am today.
I did not learn this lesson easily though, it took me going through a lot of trying times in my life and surviving. It took me discovering who I am, my passions, my likes, my dislikes, it took me laughing at my own jokes, critisizing myself and praising myself.
The one thing I used to hate was my mum comparing me with other people. I did not know back then why I felt so strongly against it but I know now. I can never be like any other person, and frankly, I do not want to be.
I never used to like looking in the mirror (I am still working on that though) because I felt I did not have a body to die for, but what amazed me was that with my less than perfect body, I still had girls flocking around me.
That thought me a very important lesson, at the end of the day, it is your attitude, character and personality that counts. People only see what you want them to see.
You need to remind yourself everyday that you were not born to fit in, you were born to stand out. If God wanted all of us to be the same, he would have made all of us identical and believe me, that would have been boring.
The best gift that you can give yourself, I believe, is to discover yourself. Everybody was born with a gift, what is yours? I remember my pastor once saying; anyone taller than you is too tall, anyone shorter than you is too short, anyone fatter than you is too fat, anyone slimmer than you is too slim.
You are perfect in all ramifications, special and unique, just the way God intended you to be, You should determine within yourself not to be a ‘chinko’ china made (there are just too many of them out there) be an original.
Celebrate yourself, appreciate your unique existence, the world is lucky to have you. Nobody can be like you.
