Make a Difference

It is sometimes easy to forget that we are each unique; that there is no one else on this earth who is identical to us. We can become convinced that we have nothing important to offer to others and so miss out on the opportunities we don't take.

We need to remember that our perspective is always unique and our ideas and opinions have value. Others may not agree with our views; but, maybe our views will make the difference. We won't know until we try.

Use what talent you possess: 
the woods would be very silent 
if no birds sang except those that sang best.

Your posts remind me of what my ENG275 teacher would write about...very interesting topics that make me think.

Keep posting, I check back often.

Let me know if Bryan-Baker Dot Com intersts you...

Leave some constructive criticism if it does interest you. Be honest ;-)

Thanks again for the great blog.

And sometimes we forget that every big and important event in life is nothing more then thousands of small moments put together! Make every second in your life count, every thought, everything! That´s what makes life special - the small things :)

Great post Henry! Thankx
