Uniqueness - Embrace it!

Every person grows up believing that he or she has some talent or gift that makes him or her stand apart from the herd. Mine, I believe, was the flair to tell stories and scare all the children in the family out of their wits. Maybe that is how I ended up writing short stories and novels that had a twist in their tales/tails.

I remember falling in love with the following quote which not only seemed like poetry in words, but also made perfect sense. It also spoke of tolerance, of equality, of acceptance and peace.

"Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best."
Henry Van Dyke

"Uniqueness or originality is nothing but doing ordinary things extraordinarily. And guess what! That is just what gives rise to excellence and profitability eventually. Thus, be and remain unique or original in all you do."
Emeasoba George

Uniqueness comes from how you deal with the world.

And finally, golden words from a lady who has proved that she is truly one of a kind!

"Use what you have to run toward your best - that's how I now live my life."
Oprah Winfrey
