So I've Been Thinkin'

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

I don't know if I have an original bone in my body. It seems like everything I want to do, someone else has done or is doing. Sometimes, I do these things because I like the people who do them. Sometimes, I do them because I know I can do them better than the people who do them. And sometimes I do things because I want to. But the originality is gone, because someone is already doing it.

The more I think about it, though, the more I realize that the originality doesn't come in being the first to do something. It doesn't even come in being the best at doing it.

After all, the being human thing is kinda going around. I'm not the first, and I sure won't be the last.

But God made each of us different, individual. So maybe the originality in the things that we do comes in what we bring to of ourselves.

So maybe I could just chill and live without doing it all and being the best.

Just a thought.

I've had the same thought before. "There is nothing new under the sun," after all. But I don't think you have to be totally original to be meaningful and touch someone's life. :-)
