I Celebrate My Freedom to Be Exactly Who I Am

A recent entry in Daily Word was something that caught my attention in terms of power: “I celebrate my freedom to be exactly who I am. In all the world, there is no one exactly like me.” You are the only you who will ever exist. To compare yourself to others is pointless because no one can ever be you nor can you ever be anyone but you. In all of eternity, there will never ever be another you. That reminds me of that great song from 1942:

“There will be many other nights like this
And I’ll be standing here with someone new
There’ll be other songs to sing, another fall another spring
And there will never ever be another you.”

Your personal power lies in your self-image. A friend of mine from high school used to say that he was just a country boy trying to make it through life. But he was a lot more than that. He became a very talented musician and teacher and has continued to be a good friend. So no one is “just a” anything.

Anyone can change their life if they change the stories they tell themselves. The question is what things do you really tell yourself about yourself? Make a list of them and take a good look at them. If you don’t like some of them, then make a new list. In this one, write down some of the things you feel are good about yourself.

We are all here learning the truth of who we are. The Bible tells us that we are sons and daughters of the Most High and that we will inherit the Kingdom. And we could get into a lengthy discussion of what that means. However, it is my sincere belief that no one really knows. I know, I’m probably committing blasphemy! Many prophets and teachers throughout the ages have tried to tell us. But in the final analysis, no one knows for sure.

I guess we”ll have to wait until are on the “other side” to get the full answer. But in the meantime, I firmly believe that what I tell myself about myself determines how I experience my life here on earth. And since there will never be another me, I’m going to believe that I am special, important in the scheme of things and that I matter. I hope everyone will be able to see the unique treasures they really are. As soon as we can believe that for ourselves and everyone else, the sooner we will have peace on earth.
