Hi friends, it’s been a while, but it’s so good to be writing again. I've missed writing and reading your comments.
Now, here is a random fact about me, or maybe not so random, for those of you who know me. I am funny! Hmm, to be honest, it’s strange even saying it, because if you asked me, I don’t think I’m funny at all. However, so many people have told me I am, that at some point, I had to start believing it. And, it isn’t till recently that I realized that this is a talent.
Although there are exceptions, most of us tend to shy away from compliments. That’s because we are so used to criticizing ourselves, that when people compliment us, we always find a thousand reasons why the compliment isn’t valid. That’s not humbleness, by the way. It’s yielding to insecurities. The problem with often yielding to our insecurities is that they never allow us to discover our talents – the things we are good at! And, if we don’t know what our talents are, how can we use them, right?
So then, how can you discover your hidden talents? By listening to those around you. What are they saying about you? What are the things that impress them the most about you? Your cooking skills, your party planning skills, fitness? With me, it’s always my sense of humour. Every time we have Secret Santa with my friends, two things get portrayed about me – my loudness and my sense of humour. (Well, my loudness isn’t a talent, just a fact of life I’m trying really hard to change, lol). Once I identified that my sense of humour is my talent, I started embracing it, instead of being embarrassed by it.
Tomorrow I will share with you how I’ve been using my talent in my quest to win souls and how it’s been helping.
