You are not ‘special’, but you are indeed unique, as are all human beings on our planet. Attention-seeking behavior is childish, self-centered, and earns scorn. Unglamorous, unassuming wisdom earns respect.
Be yourself, and be real. Divest yourself of complications, and the trappings of image, status, and influence. Reduce stress and find calm by letting go of your need to control. Be healthy and content—consume simple, nutritious food. Live modestly and within your means. Be satisfied with basic comforts. See the beauty in everyday, ordinary things around you.
If you desire to become extraordinary, translate your perception, insight, and creativity into actions benefiting humanity.
