she is truly amazing and special and i know that.
thing is........every single one of us is in our
and that's why i want to post this.
i looked over at her and looked her in the eyes.
'do you know how special you are? do you really
know it?' i asked her.
'i don't care if you know it so you feel good about
yourself. that's not the point. do you know how
special you are in the sense of what you have to
offer the world?'
i think maybe each one of us should stop and ask
because at some point, it's not just a valuable
thing you need to have to be healthy....
at some point, it's not about you anymore.
it's about what you give back.
if you don't see your gifts, how can you offer them?
if you don't fully see how special you are, then
do you ever offer all that you have?
if you don't offer all that you have, are you holding
out on the world?
do we have any responsibility to give what we have
all these thoughts tumbled thru my head yesterday.
i looked at her and knew she can and does rock the world.
i looked at myself and wondered if my inability to see
what i had to offer was actually a selfish act.
i think it is.
we all can rock the world.
and i believe we all have a responsibility to give back
to the world, to make it better.
i really do.
so do we hold out because we don't want to see?
