What are Your Gifts?
I hope you're doing well. If not, that's ok, too. No matter where you are right now, my wish is for you to know how loved you are...just for being alive + here + yourself. If you're anything like me, you probably have some struggles you may be going through, but I can tell you whatever it is, you're going to be ok. How can I be so sure of this? Because chances are there's someone in your life who lights up just because you walked into the room, or there's someone in your life who feels all the good feels just because you laughed that amazing laugh you do. That's a pretty magical thing, right? And knowing that, how can you NOT know you're going to be ok?
I would like to ask a favor of you, it's a simple favor and only 2 questions I'd like you to answer:
- What are your gifts?
- How can they make the world a better place?
You might already know the answers to these questions, and if you do, GREAT! Go make the world a better place, however you can, with those gifts. If you're struggling with what your gifts are, just find things that make you feel happy, and do those things as much as possible. Chances are you'll slowly uncover your gifts and the people around you will benefit as well. Oftentimes our gifts are found in things we do that make others feel darn good, so look there, too.
I hope you know you have extraordinary gifts to offer this world, even if you can't articulate what exactly they are yet. And sharing those gifts takes courage + faith + work + love. And our time here on earth is fleeting so why keep those gifts hidden longer than necessary? You know you're far more capable...far stronger...far braver than you can ever possibly imagine.
I'm a big believer in each of us having our own unique purpose. One that involves us playing our own unique part in the greater collective story of humanity. All that's ever required of us is to show up. That's it. Show up for those in your life, with the gifts you've been given.
You're still alive, and I know this because you're reading this post. That means you still have a purpose here. Your part in humanity's story isn't over yet. We all need what only you have to offer. I want to take a moment and say thank you for being here, for taking risks, for being brave, for having courage, for giving love. You are making this world a better place.
