‘See sometimes, I meet new people’ she says. A middle aged woman at the front of the theater. Lights on her. Reading glasses on.
I sit thinking ‘Is that gonna be me someday?’
I get back to what she’s saying
‘I ask people: What are you good at?‘ she says. ‘You know what, most go: ‘Uhhh I don’t know” she says with a melodramatic expression. Arms flung in the air.
However I pause. I would respond the same way. Is it because I don’t want to be seen as conceited? Or is it cause I don’t know actually?
‘You see, we all have gifts/talents passions. We should not be wasting them. We should embrace them and go with them.’ she says with a sense of conviction about her.
I sit. Think. What am I good at?
‘I am good at being a Mom. But I am NOT good at being a singer. There are many times when we pine after being good at something that perhaps we may never be good at and lose track of what we are actually good at. Instead we try so desperately to be good at something and become jealous or even enviousness of those who have what we want.’ she says.
That hit me.
‘Why don’t you use what you’re good at. Let those other people shine who have different talents from you?’ she questions the audience. Me.
There are days when I want more of this, less of that, to do this, to be perfect at this.
But…seriously…we are all gifted in so many ways. We have SO much about us that is amazing.
So..Tell Me…Would Ya! What are three things you are GREAT at? Don’t hold back…praise yourself!
