we live in a culture that makes us believe that we need to look and behave a certain way in order ‘to fit’, to be liked, to find love, purpose.

maybe there are times that you find it difficult to celebrate what sets you apart from the rest of the crowd. 

there are millions upon millions of us wearing the same clothes,
from the same stores,
with the same hairstyles,
watching the same television shows,
listening to the same music.

we all breathe, love, worry and grow.
we all came from someone, and were raised by someone.
we all have been given the power of choice;
we can make our own decisions about what we like,
who we trust, what we’ll accomplish and who we are to become.

you are one of a kind. a miracle. 

there has never been anyone in all the history of the world to share your exact genetic code. there are about 7 billion people on the planet.
yet, there is only one you. 

be amazed.

no one has ever had your wirey corkscrew curly hair + the same number of freckles on their nose in that exact pattern + the same flecks of gold in their eyes.
+ your laugh
+ your walk
+ your scent
+ your voice. 
= spectacularly divine you

more importantly, no one has ever had your exact set of circumstances – your parents, your friends, your experiences, your talents or your dreams. 

this life is utterly and completely your own.

you were destined for a great life of your own creation.
by being exactly who you are.

authenticity is where its at.
uh – hello? – lady gaga. ellen. oprah. adele. 
(’nuff said – no cookie cutters there)

own your spectacular

silly

soul.

and let it shine.
