For Today's blogpost I chose the word 'Talent.'
As a kid I always thought that singing and dancing were the only talents, and since I'm not good at both, I considered myself pretty useless, that was until I discovered that I could act and I had a flair for writing.
Just like me many people believe that they are not talented, while the truth is they just need to discover their talents. It's a gift that we all receive while some of us open the package early, others forget about it, and after many years, they suddenly discover it and then use it like Grandma Moses.
We often try to ape others, to be known for a talent we don't possess and in the bargain we forget that we are unique. Everyone does not have the same talents and potential. While some people are good at singing and dancing, some others are good with numbers,at playing musical instruments, teaching, learning new languages, making people laugh.
It takes all sorts to make the world.
We must always remember that our talents have been given to us as gifts by God, and the way we use it is our gift back to him. I may not become famous, but I would like people to remember me as the girl who did her best with the talent she had.
Leaving you with a wonderful quote I came across,
