What a beautiful vision, rice paddies stretching out before you, a vista of green…
And in the foreground a magnificent frangipani.
Are you the frangipani tree in your world? The person who is a little different from the others?
Is it physical or otherwise?
Quirkiness? Eccentricities? The way you laugh? Spiritual beliefs? Career choice? Friend choice? Humour?
Celebrate the person you are. Recognise and appreciate your differences, for it’s your differences that attract those exquisite and precious people to you.
Stand firm and proud, strengthen your sense of self. Affirm it. Rejoice in it. Speak of it.
It is a gift. Your gift to your ‘self’ and your world.
There truly is a beauty in standing out from the crowd.
