The world is a looking glass. It gives back to every man a true reflection of his own thoughts.

You

You are always you, no matter what kind of car you drive or what size house you occupy. You are always you, no matter what color your hair is, or how much you weigh. Inside, it is always you.

You are not your job. You are not the clothes you wear. You are not the body in which you live. You are more. You are you. There is no one else like you anywhere. You are unique. You have a special contribution to make, not in the distant future, but right now, today.

There is something you can do right this moment, for which you are absolutely the most qualified, the most appropriate, the best suited person to do it. You are better at being you than anyone else in this world. It is your grand, glorious responsibility and the best opportunity anyone could ever hope to have.

You are you. Make the most of that and you’ll understand how very special it is.

— Ralph Marston
