We are all born with an incredible array of gifts.
Some of us are fortunate enough to be blessed with an understanding of what they are from an early age.
Some of us have to go through a process of remembering in order to uncover them.
I have found this to be quite a struggle in moments, as facing the enormity of who we will become when they are realised can be daunting and somewhat overwhelming.
Fear of failure, judgement and scorn can get in the way, as the realisation of any of these things can lead us to feel shame, which is not fun for anybody.
It is not always easy to put ourselves out there, but unless we do we are destined to forever live in a self created box of limitation.
I used to tell myself that I couldn’t afford to embrace my gifts, that they were not aligned with the way I earned money, thus to follow them was to neglect my responsibilities.
This could not be further from the truth. While they may not immediately provide us with an income to replace that which we have built, I have found that if we embrace them everything falls into place and works itself out.
And even if that never happens, even if our gifts never provide us with the material gain we require or desire, they can bring us such joy when we move towards them and embrace everything they bring.
We’re all incredibly gifted, often beyond what we could ever comprehend, the fun part of the game is playing through life and finding them along the way, like an adventurer finding lost treasure.
