I have noticed lately, that I say: “X, the one and only” very often. (The ‘x’ naturally stands for a different person each time.) This figure of speech has made me ponder…
Aren’t we all unique individuals? Isn’t each of us “the one and only”?
Every person is born and keep on growing and forming into a unique person. Everyone has a special set of skills, traits, thoughts, aspirations and looks. No one is the same (and thanks god for that .) Everyone is one of a kind. Everyone has something he/she is particularly good at. Everyone can contribute a different outlook or a distinctive set of mind to a conversation. Everyone is unique.
A while back I have written a post on the importance of being authentic. Being authentic means to stay true to yourself and to believe in your own way. While authenticity is something you need to nurture, uniqueness is something you inherently have.
For this week’s journaling prompt I ask you to embrace your uniqueness.
Grab your journal and start writing:
- What are your strongest traits?
- What are your best skills?
- What would the following people answer, when asked to describe you in a sentence:
- Your colleague.
- Your friend.
- Your kids.
- Your husband.
- Your parents.
- Your sibling.
- What differentiate you from others? What makes you special?
- What makes you, ‘YOU’?
Be nice to yourself! Write a long list or a short list, it doesn’t matter – as long as you are taking the time to observe and embrace your uniqueness.
Leave a comment and share your uniqueness with us.
