In all the world there is nobody, nobody like you. Since the beginning of time there has never been another person like you. Nobody has you smile, your eyes, your hands, your hair. Nobody owns your handwriting, your voice. YOU’RE SPECIAL.
You’re different from any other person who lived in the history of the universe. You are the only one in the whole creation who has your particular set of abilities. There is always someone who is better at one thing or another. But nobody in the universe can reach the quality of the combination of your talents, your feelings.
Like a roomful of musical instruments, some might excel in one way or another, but nobody can match the symphonic sound when all are played together. YOUR SYMPHONY.
Nobody can paint your brush strokes. Nobody has your taste for food or music or dance or art. Nobody in the universe sees things as you do. In all time there has never been anyone who laughs in exactly your way, and what makes you laugh, or cry, or think may have a totally different response in another. SO…YOU’RE SPECIAL.
Through all eternity no one will ever walk, talk, think or do exactly like you. YOU’RE SPECIAL. You’re rare and in all rarity there is enormous value and because of your value the need for you to imitate anyone else is absolutely wrong. Please realize that God made you for a special purpose. He has a job for you to do that nobody else can do as well as you can. Out of the billions of applicants one is qualified. Only one has the unique and right combination of what it takes and that one is YOU.
You are very special.
(19th century Anon – revised EJB March 1982)
