Because in the end, we’re all just screaming out loud with our words and our actions, “I’m Significant!”, even if we do feel like that dust speck. And who to teach us the lesson better than Calvin and Reddit.
All of the trials and tribulations that we endure on the day-to-day business that we call life boils down to that one simple fact. We seek to improve ourselves to prove our self worth to others (as well as to ourselves). We stand up for our beliefs because we feel that we just might be able to make a difference that will count in a memorable way. We attempt to go beyond the ordinary, because we remember that someone once told us that we had the chance to become extraordinary (yes, I believe we all had one or two people who said this to each and every one of us at some point in our life).
And no one is just a speck of dust, even if you’re looking at yourself against the scale of the universe. Because what you have within you will never be the same combination that any other living creature will have, simply because we’ve all lived our lives in our own ways.
Repeat after Calvin, “I’M SIGNIFICANT!” Now go out there and show everyone just how significant you really are. It’s all up to you.
