“In diversity there is beauty and strength” ~ Maya Angelou
Just like every person is different, so too are our talents and the way we do things. Let’s look at a couple of examples of how each of us have talents that are unique to each of us.
As a kid in the kitchen of our home economics class, we were all given the same a banana bread recipe to make for a grade. At the end of class, each of us presented the results to the teacher for our grade. I looked around the room at my classmates results. I was surprised to see all of the end results of our assignment. Each of us had different results even tho our the recipes were all the same. My banana bread may have risen more than Jane’s but hers was moister than Kim’s.
Another example is my skills as a caregiver. I can remember countless times during my time working as an aide that I was told that I was the best one that gave a shower, made a bed, or helped a patient somehow. I’d also been told I was the worst too(chuckle). Even though I told my patients/clients that I was doing the same thing as my coworkers did, they still said that I did my job different in some way than the others.
Whenever each person brings their own unique talents together with others we can create a type of harmony. When all of us create harmony together, and don’t argue who’s better than another, we learn that although each of us is different, we learn that we are stronger together.
Thought for the day: No matter what the task is at hand, each of us has our own unique way of doing things. That diversity can make us Stronger together.
