You are not your father. You are not your mother. You are not any of your relatives. You are not your teachers at school, nor are you the limitations of your early religious training. You are yourself. You are special and unique, having your own set of talents and abilities. No one can do things exactly the way you can do them. There is no competition and no comparison.
You are worthy of your own love and your own self-acceptance. You are a magnificent being. You are free. Acknowledge this as the new truth for yourself. And so it is ~ Louise Hay
The truth is that we have all been created with our own set of unique gifts and talents. And somewhere along the way, we compare ourselves with others and make ourselves wrong. We listen to the criticism of others. And we dismiss our uniqueness as unacceptable or “weird”. And we choose to hide our brilliance behind a mask constructed by what we believe we “should” be. It’s time for us to stop the comparisons and start unashamedly expressing our authentic, unique selves.
The challenge is that we have lived so long trying to “fit in” that we have forgotten who we are and why we are here. And how do you reconnect with your true uniquessness? The answer lies with your inner child, who knows exactly who you are. Take some time to reconnect with that child within and realize what you loved as a child and what makes you unique. Do something you love and play each and every day and your uniqueness will begin to shine through. Play with the children. Make a mess. Make a noise. Express your uniqueness in your own unique way ~ Alison Livanos
