Hi to my dear readers! Sorry for not being consistent in my blogging. Actually, instead of writing and updating my blog consistently, I spent the days and months in prayer, silence, and reflection. In the past months, I experienced a lot of good and bad experiences which indeed worthy for sharing in my blog. Now, this is a moment and an ample time for me to start again from the basics. At first, I find it so hard to start writing and posting in my blog again because only few read my life stories. “It’s so boring and useless to blog because nobody cares about my life stories”-this was the reason that always pops into my mind as I am trying my very best to convince myself to write and post these stories in my blog. I admit that I am just a beginner in this business called “inspiring others through blog.” I am not a good writer. I am not fluent in the English language which I consider as a medium for blogging. The only thing that I could be proud of and that I could show and share in the whole world is the ups and downs of my life.
I consider myself as a nobody in this world. I have few friends. Even though I have 1076 friends in Facebook, only few are willing and available to chat with me consistently. I am not a talented person, but I am still thankful to God that He gave me the capacity to strive for excellence with full hopes that someday I may be able to discover my very own God-given talent. I am a hopeless romantic person, but I am thankful that despite this “curse” which pierces me so hard, I still feel that I am being loved by someone who accepts me and understands me more, i.e. God. Oftentimes, people misunderstand me because my actions, beliefs, and ideologies are not prior to them. But despite all these pessimistic ideas that I have in life, I am optimistic with something that I could be proud of until I die, i.e. I am a unique human person created out of love and mercy by God.
Uniqueness is one of the characteristic of the human person which is hard to define and to see in our neighbors. I could say that I am one of the victims of those who are misjudged and misunderstood by the people of today. Because of my different perspectives and point of view, I was left like an orphan by my friends who I consider as my strength in times of difficulties. Oftentimes I am being criticized and questioned because my state of life does not correspond to what the world manifests in each and every one of us today. What’s within me that people doesn’t want to see? What’s within me that people hates? These are the questions that frequently pops in my mid whenever I ask myself.
As I try my very best to discover an answer and reasons to my questions, this is what I get; majority of the people nowadays are fond of impressions and what is sensational to the human person rather than what is unique in him/her. It is so sad to know that only few people on this earth still appreciate the uniqueness of the human person whatever color of the skin he/she has, whatever language he speaks, and wherever country or places he/she belongs. As the Holy Scriptures says we are created in the image and likeness of God and we are given a precious gift called uniqueness. But why is it that many of us here in this world find it so hard to identify each person’s uniqueness? If we die and if our flesh has been decomposed, our bones will be the same with other’s bones and this phenomenon testifies that we are created and formed equal by God though we have different uniqueness in life.
Writing this reflection made me think twice. I said “What’s the purpose of writing this reflection and posting this in my blog if no one cares to read this? If no one cares to read this, I dare to speak up in this issue which I myself experiences. One thing passes unto my mind which I would like to say as to conclude this reflection about uniqueness; “DON’T JUDGE THE BOOK BY ITS COVER!”
