Personal Gifts

Have you noticed that each person on the Earth is unique.  We have our own physical characteristics.  Some of us have red hair, some have brown eyes, some are tall.  We also have different personalities.  Some are shy, stubborn, fearless.  Some characteristics we were born with, and some we receive through our experiences.

To make us even more unique, we all have different talents or gifts.  Each and every one of us have multiple talents or gifts.  Typical gifts are things like: musical ability, culinary skills, artistic abilities, but there are also gifts not as obvious.
Gifts like:




  • patience
  • being a good friend
  • being a good listener
  • lifting others up
  • being hardworking
  • the gift of loyalty       
  • the gift of humor
  • being easy going
  • faithfulness
  • not easily offended
  • the gift of imagination
  • the gift of communication
  • easing the burdens of others
The list could go on and on.

I think that when we take a moment to find out what our own gifts are a few wonderful things will happen.  First, our confidence and self worth increases.  Yay!  Don't we all need a little confidence boost!  I know I used to think that because I didn't have an obvious talent like "Singing Sally" my worth was less than hers.  Not so!  We all have value.  And when we realize what our gifts our self worth will increase.

Second, we will use our gifts to help others.  If you are a good listener look for opportunities to help others by listening to them.  That not only makes you feel useful, but helps those in need.  Double blessing!

So when you have a moment, think about what your personal gifts might be.  We all have them.  No one was created talentless.  OOoooh, and if you see a gift in some one else, tell them.  Maybe they don't even know they have it!

Good Luck my talented friends!

Maria, I think your writing is a gift. You should have started writing when you were younger.

Great job

Maria

Thanks. Younger Maria, aka Goofus, wasn't the greatest writer. I think being a parent has helped my writing.

I think my gift is writing and putting people at ease and at one time I loved singing but never nurtured it...

I totally believe in telling people when they have an awesome talent :)
