The Best YOU

You are the best you there is.
There is no competition.
You can do it better than anyone.
No one can take your place.
Along with that dynamic truth there are two,
Seemingly contradictory, but ultimately
Paradoxical and mysterious:
You are not yet the best you can be …
Or will be …
And …
You can duplicate yourself and your efforts
In others who are  each, individually,
One Of A Kind
Like you.
The keys are …
Wonder,
Appreciation ,
Extension,
Investment, and
Commitment.
Stand in awe and wonder at God’s creation of you.
Appreciate your own uniqueness and that of others.
Extend yourself beyond your immediate reach.
Invest in people and in your own development.
Commit yourself to the long haul.
By God’s grace and power,
You can do it.
You are well on your way and you are …
Oh So Special!
