What’s so special about you?

By CreativeWings, 11 April, 2011, No Comment

No matter what age you are, or what your circumstances might be, you are special, and you still have something unique to offer. Your life, because of who you are, has meaning. –Barbara de Angelis

What IS so special about you?

Do you know?

Have you ever taken the time to make a list?
How about taking the time to do it right now. – Really, how about it?
If you’re having trouble getting started, ask some of the people closest to you. Just send them a text or email and ask them to list the qualities that they think make you special. (If they ask why, just tell them you’re doing a little research for a project you’re working on.)

While you’re waiting on their response, begin your own list.
What is it that makes you special? Now, I know many of you out there are saying, “I just can’t think of anything”, but just start with one thing. Do you make better pancakes than anyone you know? Can you whistle, snap your fingers or fly a kite better than anyone else? How about this, do you have more freckles than anyone you know? Is your sense of direction superior, or really lousy? Are you able to talk to anyone about anything? Do you remember everyone’s name even when you’ve only met for a second?

Have you gotten a response from the people you asked for input from? Add those to you list.
Now take the time to read your list, and insert each of the things you wrote into this sentence “I am special because_______.”

How are you feeling? I hope your answer was “special”.

We are all made up of unique qualities that make us each one of a kind, and that alone makes us very special.

Take a few moments today to celebrate the special you-ness of you!
