There's a friend of mine whose constant purpose is to remind me about life and the simple yet finer points I always miss.
Whenever I'm down, lose my strength or I am ready to give up, hers is a voice that reaches my ears.
With an authoritative tone of "Isa", I don't have the choice but to listen and she goes on to add,
"Isa, you don't need feet when you've got wings to fly."
A simple advice yet one which keeps me going.
You can't gel in when you're just born to stand out.
I believe I am born to stand out.
So should you.
So should each one of us made from each different particle of dust.
No amount of mixing and matching, can compensate for the beauty of uniqueness of each person.
I make sure to remind myself of the same each day. That I'm different. That I'm no lesser than the Mozarts and Einsteins of the world.
That I have my weaknesses and I have my strengths.
I acknowledge my weaknesses, surely taking no pride in the same but not letting them make me feel like less of a person too.
It's people like that who are a cherished reminder to slow down, look around, search where you're heading and take a breather on the way.
I couldn't be more grateful for the same.
Tag your friends and let them know how blessed you feel to have them in your life.
