I was at the salon today to get a new look and hair color for my mom’s upcoming birthday party. Women were chatting about everything, as we do when we’re at the salon waiting for the next step of our beauty process.
As I was listening and talking to several women, I found out some very interesting things. For example, the woman next to me owns a business designing clothes and she also makes wedding gowns. I also heard a woman, who knew everything there was to know about organic farming, which I thought was interesting.
There are so many talented women around us. I have a sister-in-law that builds; a deck, a staircase, a shelf – just because she can. My daughter is a gourmet cook (self-taught), though this is not how she earns her living. I have a friend who is brilliant in the financial markets. I know women who run their homes better than most corporations.
We all have God given talents. Are you using yours? Some of us use our gifts to earn an income and some of us use these gifts because if we don’t, we’ll lose our brilliance. The word “brilliance” means exceptional ability, skill or talent. I know people who stopped using their gifts, and have lost their shine.
I believe that each of us has greatness within us, bursting to get out. Do you sew? Do you dance? Do you sing? Do you build? Use the God given gifts within you. Don’t let your gift go by the wayside.
I didn’t write for many years because I was always afraid I would not get the punctuations right. I decided to pick up some books on grammar. Most importantly - I began to write. I’m a blogger now. Who knew? I love writing and find joy in doing so.
Rediscover your gift today……you are so talented!
