It used to really bother me that nothing was ever unique or original. Ideas weren’t unique – I’d heard them all before. People weren’t unique – they just followed the same patterns I’d seen in others. History wasn’t unique – it just repeated itself. Products weren’t unique – they just built on previous technologies (word loosely defined). It actuality, it was pretty depressing. What was there to be excited for? What hope was there for a new and fresh future?
That was until I realized that as an individual, my life story (and yours) is the only unique entity in the entirety of the world – due to the unique combination of my nature with my environment. This meant that everything I did was unique and original and that my future would always be new and fresh. Now that made the outlook quite exciting. Yeah, baby!
