What are your gifts? Each of us comes with special distinctions that are uniquely our own. They are not what we buy, but innate aspects of who we are.

Our gifts deserve nurturing. Our gifts need to be exercised; enticed out over and over again; shared with others; and showcased when possible. Our gifts also need to be protected against annihilation of others who may feel threatened or insecure because perhaps they haven’t yet recognized the powers of their own personal gifts. Maybe certain others haven’t realized that gifts are plentiful for all to share.

While some of our gifts may be obvious, others perhaps not so. Possibly we were uncommunicative, yet with an instrument in hand we’ve spoken volumes with music.  Perhaps we’ve been called bookworms, while in fact we’re scholarly. Maybe we’ve been told we’re push-overs, when really our gifts are fair-mindedness and compassion. A tinkerer who was fascinated by circuitry who can light up a city. A mechanic who keeps us revving and arriving in our vehicles without incident. A nurturer who has keenly observed and encouraged the gifts in children and others. 

The range of gifts is as unique as all of us. If you are not sure of what your gifts are, or the gifts within those around us who we’d like to encourage, ask a friend to tell you what they’ve observed about you when you’re not on-guard. Observing others during times of relaxation and play showcases our gifts because we’re in action instead of thinking about how we should be. 

We are never too old to keep growing and nurturing our gifts while encouraging those of others we love to grow and share their gifts as well. We owe this to the World.
