Already Taken

Look around you.  What do you see?  I know…you could be seeing some beautiful scenery or something less than that.  However, my focus is on the people you see.

Isn’t it amazing that as you look at the people around you not one looks the same?  And, what is true for your current view is also true if you could see all the people in the world.  Not one of them would look or be exactly the same.  I find it amazing that is the case given the fact there are over 7 billion people in the world.

I harken back to a statistic I have shared in previous posts.  Scientists have estimated the physiological odds of any one of us being born at 2,240 trillion to one.  No wonder not one of us is exactly like the other!  The diversity of the human genome won’t allow it to happen…too many options to the various combinations of our genes.

So, what’s the point for you?  Well, I’m trying to get you to reflect on the wonder of your individual miracle and the beauty of your uniqueness.  Fact is…it doesn’t get any better than you!  You’re a wonder regardless of how insignificant you may think you are when considering the other 7 billion of us.

Think like Oscar Wilde who said:  “Be yourself.  Everyone else is already taken.”
