“Be yourself. The world worships the original.”
… Ingrid Bergman
Are You an Original or a Replica… by Darren
There is one Mona Lisa, and millions of replicas.
The original is priceless, but the replicas can be purchased in the gift shop for a few dollars.
We all know who painted the original, but we have no idea who copied the replicas.
The original took great skill, but all the replicas needed was a fancy printer.
People travel from all across the globe and queue for hours to see the original, but just cast a passing glance at a replica.
And then, there’re we.
We can play it safe and try to be an ordinary replica.
Expendable, mediocre, innocuous…
We can be the original masterpiece that we were created to be.
Priceless, remarkable, extraordinary…
The choice is ours…
Know that you are unique and special.
And the universe is a better place for having you in it.
