“Remind yourself regularly that you are worth it!” … Susanne
We need more cheering sections in the world. We need more fans … more ticker-tape parades and more applause. In case you’re wondering … no, I’m not a sports nut … I barely even watch the stuff … and I’m not a star-struck groupie. What I’m talking about is self-directed appreciation.
It has been my observation that everybody is so busy looking outside of themselves for someone to admire and be like that they have forgotten that inside of themselves … granted sometimes a long way down inside … but inside nonetheless … there is an awesome, unique and here-for-a-reason Being.
We’re not here to be like everyone else. Imagine what it would be like if we all walked the same … talked the same … thought the same … and looked the same. B-O-R-I-N-G!! Every single one of the 7 BILLION people on this planet are different from each other … and that is how it is supposed to be.
I believe that every single one of us is here for a reason. You may not have uncovered that reason yet. Your raison d’être may be really big and world-changing or itty-bitty and personally changing …but it doesn’t matter which one it is … because you are a Child-of-Life and as a popular t-shirt from the 80’s said: “And God don’t make no junk.”
I’m not like anyone else whom I know. My inner Perky Polly pretty much guarantees that one! When I add Sunshine Sue into the mix I become an upbeat, cheering section all on my own. Miss Perky never lets me forget … even on the down days … that we carry a light that has the potential to brighten up other people’s lives and Ms Sunshine is well-known for whipping out snazzy sunglasses at the drop of a hat. We’re a happy crew out here … unique as they come … and perfectly O.K. with that because as a good friend of mine once said: “Normal is a cycle on the washing machine.”
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
