Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
– Henry Van Dyke
We all have remarkable talents that are unique to us, and there needs to be a time to celebrate those talents not just for the world, but for ourselves. Can you whistle through your nose? How about balancing an apple on your chin? Can you say the alphabet backwards while belching? It doesn’t matter what your special talent is, Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day is your chance to shine!
History of Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day
The history of Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day is as old as mankind, for we have all had our unique talents since the beginning of time. Think of the person who first had the mind to understand how some minor aspect of the world worked. Perhaps it was gravity (you know Newton wasn’t the first one), or a special understanding of how clay came together with sand and heat to create a material that would be used in its various forms throughout all of human history, ceramic. But even those who have less obviously useful talents should celebrate their unique talents.
A Jester had a biting wit and a sort of wisdom that cut through the gallantry and pageantry of the royal court, and let them see straight to the truth of the matter without losing his head. What of clowns and mimes? Or those who have the ability to dive deep and hold their breath for extended periods? Each of these talents have come to be used in important ways, even if just to entertain and brighten the spirits of those who watched the talent in action. Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day lauds that special spark within us, the thing that makes us fundamentally unique from the rest of the world.
How to celebrate Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day
Find your unique talent, and share it with the world! You can record yourself doing your particular talent and showcase it in a YouTube video or just share it with friends and family who perhaps have never seen this talent in action. If it’s the kind of talent that can be shared, such as a physical art, use it to create gifts for friends and coworkers, who doesn’t appreciate someone who can do amazing things with paperclips and straws? Celebrate your uniqueness on Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day!
