More About National Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day

No actual historical timeline exists when it comes to talents. People have had their unique talents for as long as they have existed. Sure, more conventional talents may have come into existence a little later; for example, being a gifted guitarist was only possible after the invention of the guitar. But other quirky talents have been around since day one, and we don’t know where we’d be without them. Is it too far-fetched to think that the world would be a different place without special skills and talents? We wouldn’t know light if it wasn’t for the guy whose unique talent was rubbing sticks together until they sparked. Music would sound so different if it wasn’t for the person whose unique talent was creating sounds from flat hollow surfaces, eventually leading to the invention of drums. Talents don’t even have to be revolutionary to be celebrated. Even being able to touch your tongue to your nose is great, unique to you, and deserves to be hyped up! As PGA Master Dr. Alison Curdt is quoted to have said, “Being different is a strength, not a weakness.” Society has shut it down in the past, but we are progressively becoming more accepting and inclusive. Not everyone is born to be a singer or dancer, some people are gifted to bend their thumb all the way back, and they deserve recognition too. As a matter of fact, the true celebration doesn’t even lie in external validation. Do you think the first person to rub wooden sticks together didn’t get weird looks from his friends? What would have happened if he let that judgment get to him and stopped exploring his talent? Accepting your inherent uniqueness is powerful in more ways than one. Celebrate Your Unique Talent Day is a reminder of just that.
