My vacation this year with my family was situated in New Hampshire, camping next to Lake Winnipesaukee. One particularly balmy day we decided to go to Ellecoya Beach in Laconia. The beach surroundings there are beautiful and a great way to enjoy nature at its finest! We settled ourselves in and as I was looking around, I started observing people on the beach…the many different types of people…not only physical observations but the way they were interacting with their families and friends as well. It was then that I had this revelation! Well not really a revelation, but a moment I guess you could say. Here it is… are you ready?
People are people!
That’s what it was…people are people and people are what makes the world go ’round! Each person in an individual with a unique personality, characteristics and strengths.
And so it is with you and me!
Every one of us is unique and our uniqueness should be celebrated, don’t you think? After all, if we were all the same, the world would be quite a boring place. Your uniqueness is what makes you special. Think of all the amazing qualities you have. Maybe you are generous and kind or you are especially skilled at leading. Maybe you have the knack of making people feel good about themselves or are a great listener. Or are you great at “giving from the heart?” Maybe you know exactly what to say at the right time. Think about it. There are a zillion “maybes.” You need to remind yourself of the things you are exceptional at and how likely it is that others wish they had your talents!
Celebrate your uniqueness!
