You are special, so act like it. You are unique, so make the most of that uniqueness. There’s something you can contribute to this moment that no one else has to offer. There is a perspective from which you can experience this day that is unlike any other.
Don’t settle for merely doing the same thing as anyone else, or mimicking the opinions, desires and dreams of others. Live your own life, and explore the unique beauty of your very own dreams, thoughts, opinions and interests.
Your greatest value comes from being who you truly are. Let your beautiful, unique, fascinating and authentic self come fully to life. Instead of spinning your wheels and striving to be someone you’re not, enjoy the sweet fulfillment of being who you really want to be. Instead of trying in vain to please others with who you think they think you should be, impress them with who you really are. Know the true joy of being your true self. Honor and appreciate all of life by fully and authentically living the one very special life that is yours. — Ralph Marston
