From The Editor's Desk

On this month’s cover we ask the question: What Makes You Stand Out?

There are a myriad of answers to that query and not a single response is right or wrong because we are independent beings whose ability to shine and sparkle is limitless.

Each of us is as unique as that red tulip in the field of yellow.  We are complex and multidimensional.  We have likes and dislikes, excel at some things and may not be so great at others.  We are different shapes, sizes, colors, ages, and genders. 

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it come to human beings. 

Our individuality is expressed in so many ways but the heart of this outstanding human capability it isn’t about how we dress or style our hair or what parent we resemble or even what job we hold.  Those are trappings.  The essence of what makes us stand out is demonstrated by our thoughts, actions, words, and deeds. 

We humans have the inimitable capacity to be whatever we choose.  Based on our choices each one of us contributes distinctly to our family, friends, our community and society in general.  From our individuality and its interaction with others stems a field of multicolored blossoms that spark ingenuity and creativity.  What we do with that – how we contribute to our immediate and expanded world - is what makes us stand out.

What makes you stand out?  We’d like to know how you are changing the world, even if it’s one person at a time.  Drop me a note and share your story.

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift, and the rational mind is a faithful servant.

We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."
