Beautifully Different – #reverb10 – December 8th, 2010

Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful. – (Author: Karen Walrond)

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting. ~ e. e. cummings

I live by this quote. And have for many years. I found it when I was about 8 I think, and wrote it down in a journal I had at the time. I’ve recited it to myself whenever I feel the slightest bit down on myself. It doesn’t always change how I’m feeling, but it certainly pushes me in the right direction of remembering that I am who I am because God made me this way.

I don’t really see things that make me different as making me different. If that makes any sense. I genuinely care about people. All people for that matter. I believe in treating others as we’d like to be treated, and I make every effort to remember to do this in my daily life. It’s difficult sometimes, and I sometimes fail. I equate silence at the supper table as an indication of how much people like the food I’ve poured my heart into. I cook because it reminds me of my granma. My granma is my best friend. EVER!

I’m stuck! Analyzing the things about me that make me “Beautifully Different” is driving me crazy. Maybe after some time away from this I’ll be able to better re-group and think my answer through better.

I hope anyway!
