Being Confidently Unique!!


 

“If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it – through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated.”

 Victoria Moran

Hey Beauties,

I was supposed to add a post yesterday but I was experiencing some technical difficulties. My apology to you all. Here is my inspired word for today =)

What does it mean to be unique? Being unique means to not have any like or equal; unparalleled; incomparable. I like to say that being unique is…standing apart or standing out. We were each created to make our own mark on the world. We were each fearfully and wonderfully made. God knows every strand of hair on our heads and has predestined our path in life (strictly my beliefs). He made us SO unique that not one of us have the same fingerprint. I was sent on this earth to be different from you and likewise.

So often we get sucked into this mentality of conforming instead of learning how to be comfortable and confident in our uniqueness. We start feeling self-conscious by noticing that we’re standing out or not fitting in when in actuality…that’s what we were created for. We have to learn that it is ok to make our own imprint. My message is not for us to become recluse or socially awkward but to be ok with not always fitting into the normal pattern of things. The society we live in shapes our thoughts about how things should be or at least how society THINKS things should be. This conformed thinking can cause us to doubt ourselves, our uniqueness. We start the battle in our minds. For example: fat vs. skinny, short vs. tall, black vs. white, short hair vs. long hair, etc. God has made us each different to create the diversity we see each day. Just think about what our world would be like if we were all the same or if we all thought the same thoughts. Greatness is not born in conformity!! Think about all the people who made an impact in this world. The Malcolm X’s, the MLK’s, the Benjamin Banneker’s, the George Washington Carver’s. I’m sure people thought they were radical and they were OK with it! Be ok with being your unique self.

Don’t force yourself into the “box”! Be confident in the knowledge that sometimes your position is outside of the box. There is nothing wrong with that =)

Until next time, let’s continue to BmoreBeautiful
