There is no one in the world who is like YOU.
No one has your eyes.
No one has your hair. No one has your nose.
No one has your lips.
No one has your fingerprint.
No one is like YOU!
No one can replace you!
Someone can copy you, but someone can be you. Just as you can't be anyone else, you also can only be a copy of someone.
But why do you prefer to be a copy if you can be the original?
The world, the people around you, they need YOU!
The two most important days of your life are the day you were born, and the day you find out why you're alive!
How often do we stroll lost without really experiencing life?
How often we do not know or remember what our job is, what our place is here in this world? So often we doubt our self-worth and our abilities.
We become confused and dissatisfied with who and how we are.
We compare. The thing with comparison is that you will always find someone who is better, nicer, smarter faster, stronger, richer, etc.
You'll always find someone who is worse off where you rank better. No matter what perspective you accept either can be unhealthy, especially when your comparisons lead to envy or self-pity.
So many times have I asked myself why I'm here in the world, what the meaning of my life is. Many years my life did not make sense to me. I went through hard times in the early years, there were many moments in my life where I no longer believed my life was worth living. At times in my life, I have had no hope. I experienced a lot of suffering - my body still bears the scars. I hated my life not understanding what was happening to me. Life was too heavy for me, I did not know before, I did not know back then.
For years, I knew "when" I was born, but I could not answer the "why" I'm here in the world. For years I saw a tiny light at the end of the road, but it felt like I would never make it there.
In my heart I prayed to God weeping bitterly, sometimes screaming with rage for Him to help me. Despite all of this, I knew deep in my heart that life holds more than what I already knew. Inside of me was always a little bit of hope that one day everything would be different.
I came out of the darkness into the light.
God has not changed all my circumstances in one day - but He has carried me through. Every day is new. His help was different than what I imagined it to be like. It was a process of years and is still ongoing. Even if I do not have all the answers to my questions or understand why some things have happened in my life I now have peace. God has given me peace that He is in control and watches over my life. Today I know why I am in this world. If I had to experience all of this to be able to understand and help even one person, it was all worth it. It is possible to get out of the vicious cycle of depression, self-hatred and injury!
Do you know why you are alive?
Today, I can say from the bottom of the heart that I love my life. I still have challenges, experience painful moments, and injuries but my heart has begun to live again, to beat, to dream. Today I am just so full of life!
Just as our appearance and our personalities are different, our stories are alsounique.
We all have our own history.
You have yours, and I have mine.
There is no better and no worse story.
Your story does not end where you are today, you can start writing your own story. You can decide what circumstances to live under. You can start today, thinking new ideas about yourself, accept yourself. You can start taking new steps, venture into new things that will bring you to new shores. You can start today with one chapter in your life complete, and a new chapter beginning.
Will you accept the invitation from God and allow Him to make history?
Unique - YOU are beautifully made. Your life story is unique!
Unique - that is you!
