I still can’t quite grasp the enormity of how unprecedented each one of us is. No one out there is like you or me. And each of us is unparalleled. No one has ever spoken with my voice. No one else has my heart and mind.

Yet, it is a fragile fact and evaded my grasp for years, because I had concluded that I didn’t matter, that my voice had little worth. But, in the silence of this past year, our individual uncommonness, our unrivalled uniqueness is hitting home.

The Bible puts it so well. “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!” (Psalm 139:14)

  1. This is at the heart of contribution.
    Do I have the heart to pursue it because I believe it, and even if I’ve been silent/ silenced (for some of us) time and again.

    Also reminds me of the parable of the talents: we answer to the giver, and ultimately no one else.
