While browsing, I often stroll over to MindBodyGreen, which is an interesting site for anyone keen on health issues. Today this text by yoga teacher Ally Hamilton caught my eye. Click this link for the full version, or just munch on the lines quoted below. So beautifully put and so true:
It’s important to remember there are roughly seven billion people on the planet at this point, and only one YOU. You’re made up of about 100 trillion cells that have never come together in exactly the same way before, and won’t again. You have a particular song to sing, and if you don’t belt it out, that’s a song the world never gets to hear.
If you’re doubting whether or not you have something meaningful to offer, consider that no one but you has had your experiences, your memories, your ideas, your fears or your dreams. You have a unique perspective, although the themes of your life are likely to be universal. You never know how you might shine a light for someone else simply by sharing what’s in your heart.
