To some this may seem like a daft question, they know how important they are, what they achieve and the difference they make.
To others this may seem like a daft question, but for different reasons.
Those people are thinking "me? important? Hardly. I don't feel important. I don't seem to make a difference and I rarely achieve anything".
I know what it feels like to be the second kind of person, I was one of them for a long time, and I know they are wrong.
Think for a moment about all the things that had to happen for you to be here.
I'm not just talking about the physical act of conception, I'm talking about the magic that needed to happen over a huge period of time (from the beginning of everything to that moment), the events that had to happen, the chance meetings, the acts of fate and destiny that had to conspire to bring that moment of conception to pass.
That alone makes YOU important.#
Now you need to consider that from the moment of conception how many opportunities has life had to end your existence? How many close shaves have their been? How many times have you stepped back onto the curb and narrowly avoided being knocked down? How many seemingly meaningless decisions have resulted in you avoiding potentially fatal events?
I bet that some of you reading this may not even be able to recall the numerous times that you've come close, if you are not inclined to look back on your life in an analytical way (and lets be honest we're all pretty busy and it's not in everyones nature to do so) then why you be able to. Being able to recall them is not the point.
What is important is that you realise that you have been close to being taken through the Veil to the other-side permanently but for reasons of fate have not been. This makes YOU important.
Everyone, and I mean everyone (whether they want to acknowledge it or not) is here because they are important. Not everyone can be a Hero, or Heroine, of great renown but we are all Heroes and Heroines (delete as appropriate) in our own ways.
This means that we are all important.
We might not always feel it, but it is always true none the less.
To someone (or probably to many) or somethings you are important.
You are also important to the magic of the universe to which you belong, as you are part of it, an essential part of it and therefore you are important.
So next time you feel insignificant remember that you are important, very important. It may not always be enough to make you smile but it will always be enough to raise your spirits and ease you fears.
