You’re special. Yes, you! You’re special…
Every bone in your body… Every fiber of your being… Every hair on your head (and your back & ears for some of us lol!) has been numbered with precision. You are special. You have issues with weight. You have debt. You have a problem finding a suitable mate. You have don’t get along with the other parent of your child. You’re confused. You don’t know how to pray to or who to pray at all… But guess what, you’re still special.

You live check to check. You had a dream as a child of where you wanted to be by now and you’re NO WHERE near that dream. You have an ingrown hairs. You have a health condition that you’re embarrassed to share and that you’d rather not have. You show up late for almost everything you attend but you could’ve sworn you woke up with enough head start time. You can never find anything to wear. But you’re special.

You just found out that your ex was cheating on you… even more than you thought. You just found out who your parents really are and there are some things about them that you HATE! You wish you were taller. You wish you were more lean. You wish your hair wasn’t doing what it’s doing right now. You wish you had more twitter followers. You wish you didn’t have that student loan… or child support… or that credit card bill every month because then you would really be a step closer to balling outta control But… you’re still special.

At the end of the day, you really don’t know the difference between a democrat, republican, or a liberal. You wish you finished college. You finished college and wonder what difference did it really make. You’re unemployed. You’re unhappily employed. Your friends borrow money from you and ask you to give them rides but when you need it in return there’s no one around to help. You’re still special though. You wish things were like they were when you were a kid. You wish relationships were like they were when we were kids… I like you… Do you like me? You do? Cool, so now we go together… SIMPLE! We’re all special.

You wish that you didn’t have to pay bills but you love the luxury that these services provide. Your crotch itches and you have to fart at the most inopportune times. You, just like me, have at least one major…
It’s not a disease… But we all suffer from it in some way, shape, or form. If you’re reading this, then I’m talking to you! If you’re reading this, please share this with at least 10 of your friends… friends who will actually read this because you definitely know 10 people who could use this right now. One of my own insecurities is in the area of family. I grew up in a loving home with 2 great parents and it was stripped from me right while I was at the doorstep of manhood. Right while I felt I needed that structure the most. There are people out there who NEVER had parents and have lived in waaaaaaaaay more harsh conditions. But in my own personal experience, that is a scar that may never heal, and has me in a place where I cherish relationships and can’t wait to be a husband and father. I believe there are many men out there who want the same but the colors of the world and our households have painted and tainted our manhearts the ugly shades of noncommitment, objectification, laziness, fear and the worst of all NON-KNOWINGHOWNESS. But any hoo… I place value on every friendship, every acquaintanceship, every business partnership, every internet homie, every bond that I have and may have in the future. Unfortunately, time, responsibilities and my own imperfections don’t allow me to deal with them all as precisely as I’d like but I value all of it. I give hand written thank you cards out at my events. I kiss babies. I shake hands. I reply to tweets. But at the end of it all, I still have insecurities and things that I’m dealing with… many of them were mentioned above, as I’m sure you can relate to as well. I say all of that to say, No matter how funny, light hearted, harsh, sarcastic, loving, or insightful it comes across… I do this out of love. Never lust… Never hate. It comes from an imperfect place… from an imperfect human… and travels through perfect time and perfect space to reach the hearts & minds of other imperfect humans. With all of that imperfection, I hope that we all can find some sort of perfection in all that we do with and for eachother. Because we all have a seed of greatness planted within us that with the right amount of care… water… and time can grow into whatever it desires. Because we’re all special…
Yeah, even you… yeah, the one picking their nose while driving. Yup, even you too!
