Can I get an ‘Amen’? I love this quote because it reminds me of the absolute gift that talent is. I think that often times people forget this.
It is so easy to get caught up in the busyness that comes with successfully using your gifts. You are really good at something and people want to enjoy it.
Here’s the thing though, if your talents are God given then God has a plan for you to use them.
This means getting clear on what that purpose is and then living it as fully as you can. This is how you give a gift back to god and it is a truly beautiful way to live.
I believe that every single person born to this earth has special, unique and God given talents. They were born with them.
The really sad thing is that I see people comparing theirs to what other people have. This is never going to make anyone happy and can be quite counter productive.
Even if I can get ‘better than you’, it will never be the best I am capable of in my own right and with my own gifts. Each person is made for something specific.
Like grains of sand, snowflakes and other beautiful creations, we are unique. Each and every one of us. The absolute beauty lies in being the best YOU you can be.
So I invite you all to revel in what is your gift and think intentionally of giving this loving energy back to God.
