Someone special

You are something special. You are someone special.

That doesn’t mean you get to jump to the head of the line. It means you’re obliged to live up to your unique potential.

It means your perspective matters. It means what you value has value.

The good things you do contribute to the goodness of all that is. Those things you decline to do or neglect to do impose a cost on everyone.

No one else can add to life what you are able to add. No one else sings life’s songs in the beautiful voice that is yours to share.

You are someone special, living in a world where every person is uniquely special. Remind yourself of all the good that can come from such, and play your special role to make it so.
