What Makes You So Special?
What do you think is special about you? We generally aren't conditioned to believe that it is okay to think well of ourselves. But the point could be made that if we can't see what is 'special' about ourselves then we are constantly at the mercy of other people's opinions. We all know that compliments come and compliments go. So do criticisms. Claiming your own specialness allows you to keep your equilibrium through both the good and bad reviews of your life, behavior, work, religion or whatever anyone else feels free to comment upon.
Do the people in your life see your specialness? Have you dared to be open enough to show them? Ask a friend or acquaintance what they think is 'special' about you. Did you both come up with the same answers? And if you have always wanted to tell someone else what you think is special about him or her, here's your chance to do it!

What others appreciate most about me is my volunteerism. Whether it's with little league, school, charitites, or community organizations I can be found helping. I feel that you get out of anything only what you put into it.
I've never felt that it's so special. To me it seem to be a basic need like food or shelter. I don't feel whole if I'm not helping somewhere! But I've been thanked often here near the end of the school year and I see what a difference I make. But most importantly, my kids know how much I love them since I'm involved in their lives.
I'm special because my kids say so!

I think what makes me *special* is that I'm totally mellow. I've been told that I'm so laid back that people think I'm in a coma! There really isn't a whole lot that can upset me, and for some reason, it seems to upset others, if you can believe that!
Examples would be how I trust my husband to go to a strip club or hang out with his bachelor friends, and I don't think twice about it. "Don't you worry he'll stray?" Naaah... I know who he comes home to. Politics don't ruffle my feathers much, either. It would take a whole lot to get me active in something - I even give Dubya the benefit of the doubt.
I think it also works in my favor, because at work, when everyone else is in a panic about where a file is, I can get up, open a drawer and pull it. I also take alot of things in stride, whereas alot of people I know become offended easily. Even when shock-jock Mancow Muller said last week how he wants to "...pull out [his] Glok and blow the brains out of every Wiccan", I know that his show is totally staged, that it's May Sweeps, he gets ratings by getting a rise out of people, and not to take a moron like him seriously.
So I guess *I* like to think I'm special in that regard, even if other people don't :)
