We often think we are ordinary people living ordinary lives in an ordinary world. We live in a place we have made our home, get up every day and follow the routine that many around us do. Most of us do not create something astounding or win the Nobel Peace prize. Instead we live our day to day lives following paths we have chosen or fallen into.
An yet we are not ordinary.
Each of us have inside of us something that makes us unique, something that makes us the person that we are. It may be the ability to make people laugh; or help someone in their time of need. It may be the ability to see the problem clearly and objectively; or the tenderness shown in caring for the sick. It may be the ability to create sense from a group of figures; or raise many children with loving care. Whatever our talent is, it is that which draws people to us and makes us stand out, in a moment of time, in front of a group.
No, we are not ordinary. Even though we live lives that many would describe as ordinary.
What are the traits that make you unique?
