Uniqueness by Ayodele Attah-Onatunde

Before I go on about telling you how unique you are, what uniqueness is all about, I want you to go to a mirror, see the reflection of you facing you. Come on! Go to the mirror, square up your shoulders, smile, and tell yourself, you are unique.
You are an embodiment of Uniqueness.

What does Uniqueness mean? To be unique is to be of a rare quality, very special, one if a kind, unparalleled, unmatched, and one more thing, a Masterpiece
You are so unique that when the you become, the world marvels at your extraordinariness. Let’s take for example, there is something that distinguish apple phone from the Samsung phones -now that is uniqueness. Harvard University may not be the number one University in the world, but man it does stand out from other universities.
You are who you are for a reason; don’t lose the Essence of you for anyone. Know who you are and stick to the good qualities, characters, attitudes that makes you, You, and know that you are a work in progress. Stick to your own way, don’t try to follow another person’s way. For the path they took is not the same path you have to take. You are two different being, your paths are different. When you follow the wrong path, you die a copy. See you were created an original, don’t die a copy.
The best thing you can experience, and have, is to discover Who you are, What you are to do, and What path is peculiar to you. I heard of an adage which says, ” you can be replaced” but I say this, somebody else may take my place but that wouldn’t matter, because though I am being replaced in position, but no one can replace my person, no one can be you, it is either you see someone better or lesser than you.

I need you to realize that you are not merely flesh, and blood, not just here to procreate but here for something greater.
You are unique, and I need you to enjoy your uniqueness, glow in your uniqueness, revel in your uniqueness, be excited about your uniqueness, and don’t forget to share it, for you are unique.
No one can love, be a channel of blessing, or convey the meaning of your message like you do. No one can speak your words like you, reach out to others like you. No one is funny, cheerful, light-hearted like you. No one can smile your smile, frown your frown. No one can bring the whole unique impact of your being to another being.
No one is you. Enjoy your uniqueness. You don’t have to pretend to be like somebody else in order for you to be needed, for you weren’t meant to be like someone else. You were meant to be different; to stand out.
Do you know that? Nowhere ever in all history will the same thoughts be going on in anyone’s mind, soul, and spirit, as they are going on in yours now. If you didn’t exist, there will be whole in creation, agap in history, something missing from the plan of God.
Treasure your uniqueness it is a gift given to you only by God. Share your uniqueness, let it flow, from you to your family, friends, and people you meet in the rush, and clutter of living wherever you are.
See it. Receive it. Let it tickle you, form you, nudge you, and inspire you. Choose to be different, for you are a unique breed.
You are a unique brand of who you are; so be crazy about your uniqueness, don’t let mediocrity, doubt, fear, insecurity, opinions stop you from exhibiting your true self.
Don’t despise, and think yourself inconsequential in the scheme if things in this life.

I want to tell you the story of Helen Keller.
Helen Keller was an American author, political activist, and a lecturer. This woman wrote about 12 books, and several articles. She campaigned for women labor rights, socialism, suffrage, travelled to about 25 countries to speak motivational speeches to the deaf. A woman who was inducted into the Alabama Women’s hall of fame I’m in 1971, and the most amazing thing about her was that she was deaf, and blind.
Helen Keller was born on the 27th June, 1880 in Tuscambia Alabama, but 19months into her birth, she contracted an unknown illness which was described by that doctors as an acute congestion of the stomach, and the brain. This illness left her deaf, and blind.
She was the first deaf- blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Due to her parents level of enlightenment, she attended the Perkins institute for the Blind, she attended Harace Mann school for the deaf, the Cambridge school for young ladiesm, and then the Radcliffe college of Harvard University.
Helen Keller was viewed as isolated but was very in touch with the outside world. She was able to enjoy music by feeling the beat, and she was able to have a strong connection with animals. She was delayed at picking up language, but that did not stop her from having a voice.

I tell you this story, not for you to say oh, ah, but for you to realize, and know how important you are in the scheme of life.
