Unique is Good

in the generous life

Seth Godin had an interesting post.  He said [Lori’s paraphrase] that instead of chasing the standard that your business field, competitors, and critics are touting, do the work that your customers are really hungry for.

It is our uniqueness that gives freshness and vitality to a relationship.  James Dobson

I L O V E this!

My wife and I have both been far less happy in the past when we were (individually) trying to fit some arbitrary, external mold of ‘who I am supposed to be.’

Now that we’ve given up on ‘the box’, there are more challenges (that we are aware of) because we aren’t hiding behind the walls and masks that we clung to before, but we are are closer and happier every day because we are becoming who we are meant to be together and as individuals.

Thanks!
