We All Are The Same, Yet I Am Unique

It’s been a little over two weeks now since I left Louisiana to pursue a more meaningful purpose-filled fulfilling life in California. As I look back on the journey of my life, including all the experiences and relationships that I can remember from my childhood, to my adolescence, to my years as a naive teenager, and throughout all the years of my adulthood up until this point… I can definitely see clearly how unique my life has been. The experiences a person has in their life is what makes them who they are, and it establishes their identity (how they are seen, and how they see themselves).

Whenever I look at myself in the mirror every morning, how I clean myself up and the clothes I wear will be apart of the definition of how others will define me for the day. I want to look attractive, so that others can be attracted to me. Though even if I wear the same clothes as everyone else and look like everyone else, I still am unique… just like everyone is unique, when you take the time to tap into their heart.

Hollywood is all about how you look. One of my friends told me before I moved to Hollywood that he once used to iron his work out clothes before he went to the gym, because he always wanted to look presentable at all times, because he never knew who he could run into. You really have to know who you are, or have a strong self identity, when you live in a place where everyone treats you how you look and not who you are.

I love to see people who can embrace their uniqueness inwardly, while not having to show it outwardly. The ability to relate with people, to identify with them and communicate with them is what brings a true feeling of communion and togetherness. I love hanging out with people who I can share my thoughts, feelings, ideas with… and just kick it. And, it’s not just me who loves it, everyone does; we all have a common desire to come together. I just wish people were more trusting and stop hating on others, so that our unique qualities and talents can shine as we work together to accomplish dreams and build relationships that will leave a legacy.
