There is a spark of divinity in every person, says swami Vivekananda, if there is anything that is really valuable to contribute to the world, it reflects in our expression of our personality, that spark of divinity that makes us unique and special from every thing else on this universe.
This whole concept of being unique and special has been evolving in my life, and continues to evolve, I am still discovering and learning to utilise my capacity to the fullest, leaving the past behind, and desiring to bring positive changes in myself and around me, and take responsibility for creating my future.
An unknown author has put this aptly, and it is only confirming my own belief:
The only way you can successfully communicate and relate to other people, is to like yourself.
The more you like yourself, the more others will like and accept you.
People sometimes have experiences in their past that leave them filled with regret.
That is all over. It is in the past.
The reality is that you're an expressive, sensitive, beautiful person if only you'll accept your uniqueness.
It doesn't matter what someone has said about you. It doesn't matter what limitations you have previously experienced. That is all history.
What matters is what you do from this day forward. You can choose your future.
Realize that you are worthwhile and valuable with an enormous contribution to make.
Find the best within yourself and feel good about the person you are.
There is no one else just like you to be found anywhere. God thinks you are very special, and I think so too!
