Be faithful to that which exists within yourself.
More Special Than You Know
I had just finished yoga class and made my way over to the bar to converse with some friends.
I don’t like to drink and besides my yoga teacher was nice enough to give me some tea to take with me from China.
Sitting at the bar I had asked my friend about a recent date she had been on.
She said it was good, they talked about life and some other things.
She said, there isn’t much to say about my life and my story could be told in just a few hours.
I didn’t take the opportunity to say what I am about to say.
But in short, this is a truly special person and in hindsight I know she knows it.
We should all know it, but sometimes our uniqueness eludes us.
Here is a short reminder about how special we all are.
Even in the movies boring stories are made exciting.
Some tend to go like this.
A person studying or wanting to become something.
Challenges arise and the difficulty presents itself.
Usually the person triumphs, facing adversity and beating it.
Other times they don’t, but make significant discoveries along the way.
The ending leaves us with a smile, although expected.
This fictional story sounds a lot like what we all deal with.
Yes, the movies add music and little more drama, but is it really that different?
Our lives exciting or mundane are filled with a lot of wonder and experiences.
They become our own and we don’t need to paint them any differently than what they are to convey why they make us special.
It’s your story and it’s special because no one else lived it but you.
Our story is not only the one we tell people.
They are the stories that the people fortunate enough to spend time with us get to learn about as the relationship grows.
I have a feeling we are still learning about our significant others, our children and the like.
People can say whatever they want about their lives.
The truth is often relayed in our experience of that person.
It’s what we learn about as we go.
Your story is still being written and you best believe people are watching.
The notebook of our lives is never filled until we die.
The ending of it may just be the most beautiful part, it just depends on what you decide to write.
Your future story can be anything you want.
Exciting or dull.
Beautiful or wretched.
It’s all up to you.
The people you know now and may go on a date with are not only hearing your story of the past, but they are potential front row candidates for what you will become.
Don’t forget that.
That no matter what it has been up to this point, it’s always changing.
I guess it just depends if they will be there when you spread your wings.
And if they will be able to see past whatever may blind them as you soar.
Flying or walking, it truly is a story that has never been written.
All of us are special.
We have unique experiences that ninety percent of the world has not experienced.
You are special, you are the only one who has written and will continue to write your story.
You are also the one who need to see what’s amazing about it.
And decide that hey, this is quite a story and any man or woman that’s across from me is fortunate enough to hear it.
And with time you will hear and see their story too.
Just keep writing and please know your story is beautiful.
