 Don’t Keep Your Gift Wrapped Up in A Box


What am I good at?  What are my talents?  What do I have that is going to make a difference?  I don’t think I have what it takes?

I want to put you at ease.

Your gifts and talents were not given to us by mistake.  They were given to touch the lives of many others.

We all a burning passion within.  If you feel that your desired cool or is non-existent, then you need to RECONNECT with what brought you much joy as a child.

As a child there was this freedom from what made you happy.  If you wanted to play in the mud because it was fun and made you happy, then you played.  If you wanted to run silly-nilly through the woods, you would run.  It was all about freedom from negative mind controls that allowed you to just be who you are.

It is as simple as this.  You do have gifts and talents.  Now it is whether or not you have it, but what are you going to do with it.  Be good stewards of what you have.

Grow and encourage your gift.  It would be a shame to keep it boxed up.

Your gift might be similar to someone, but that is a general view.  The true view is that you are giving this precious gift your own flavor.  People love to taste test different things.  They love experiencing something new.  They are going to want to try what you serve.

We are fascinated by the talents of others. Our fascination helps inspire, encourage, and build a flame in our lives.

Your gift definitely ignites gifts in others without any spoken words.  Just pure passion, joy, and excitement that you show in what you do is the spark that gets things stirred up.

Do you need help drawing your gift out?  I encourage you to take out a pen and paper and journal what brought you joy as a child.  What your words uncover is the key to your true gift.

With Love,


P.S. Does this spark something within?  I would love to hear from you.  Leave me a note below.
