I am odd seems like an odd title for a blog post, but please read on, all will be explained!
Freedom means different things to different people. To me it is the freedom to be me, to live my life my way, to make decisions that are right for me, to be comfortable in my own skin, to not compare myself with anyone else, to know that I am enough, to not concern myself with how others see me or what they think of me.
I’m not like anyone else, and neither are you
We are all unique, made up of a variety of different assets, talents, gifts, characteristics, and personality traits. And that is ok! Better than ok… it is awesome because that makes you YOU!
God is a Creator, and He created us all unique and special. We are all His masterpieces, His special works of art. I can imagine He has a huge mantlepiece, and we are all displayed on there as the most precious and wonderful thing He has ever made!
Do you compare yourself with others? DON’T! There is only ONE YOU, and you are enough just the way you are. Accept yourself for who God created you to be.
Not long ago I did one of those personalty tests and the result surprised me, yet I kind of always knew it. I am different! I don’t fit the mould. I’m a square peg in a round hole. I am ODD. It took me a while to feel comfortable with this, but once I did, I learnt to embrace my difference, my ODDNESS, and I’m on a wonderful journey to find out what that looks and feels like. After spending my life trying to fit in, trying to be like everyone else, I feel so free now to just learn who I am, and to be ME.
What about you? Do you embrace your uniqueness or do you try to be like everyone else? Be YOU, you are amazing!
