We all have this one thing in common –we aren’t. We are in common in our uncommonness. We are indeed unique.

About seven billion people are breathing this planets’ air right now and increasing by about 3 people per second – or so they say. Out of all those folks and all the folks who have ever lived since dirt became Adam nobody is, has been, or ever will be just like you.

Think about that. Right now at this very moment in time, no person on the planet can do you as good as you . No one can do exactly what you can do exactly like you would do it. No one can reach out and help the people you can exactly the way you can. No, they can’t do it better either, (in case that’s what you were thinking.) No one is better at being you than you.

Soon we will go back to dust. A memory is all that will remain. Today, right now,

do you with all your heart – and have no worries that it’s not like anyone else. It’s not suppose to. Just be you.

Ask for help to be who you were created to be. Even if you don't pray, now's a good time to take a moment and say, "God, today, I want to be me, I want to be happy in my skin. Since you made me, then I guess you should know me, and who I should be. So, I'm going to give it a try, will you help me find my way to me?"

 Make a list, even if it's just in your head, of everything you have to be thankful for as you go through the day.

Today, right now, this moment, be You. And think: You are one in seven billion, a super star at being you.

Say to the smiling face in the mirror, “today, you’re the best in the world, no one can do you better than you. Go get ‘em.” As you walk away say, “watch out world – here I come.”

Have the greatest day because you are.

No matter what comes your way remember you are first class, top of the world, created in the image of God – You-nique.

The differences are kind of amazing when you think about it -- our DNA, our fingerprints, and our souls.

Glynn, you made me think our DNA, our souls genetically from the same Father the same finger print of God. Whatever the circumstance that is reason for hope.

Doug, please oh please tell me you intend to add a new Dougism on your sidebar—something about being you-nique ... ?
