Believe In Your Gift

Make a stand today. On this spot. On this day. Make your actions count. Do not falter in your determination to fulfill your destiny. Do not follow the destiny outlined in some mystical book.

Create your own and be the best you can be.

No one knows the road you have traveled but you. Where you stand, no one else has ever stood before. There is no reason to hide away or hold back. Where you will step is always new, even if you tread on the footprints of others. Remember, you are always defining your way.

Use your gifts with joy. Use your talents for making a difference, Use your beauty- your loving, delightful self to help others.  Create the poetry of your life with toughness and determination and let the light shine for all the world to see.

You have a purpose. Believe in your gift. It is your time to SHINE.

    Another wonderful post from you, as expected. You are reminding me of some lines from Spiderman Movie “With great gifts/powers comes great responsibility” I use to tell all the youth I coach “You are gifted!…like everybody else!” I believe one day everybody will understand the gift beneath themselves…on that day we will find heaven on this earth.

    I like this gentle twist, Lolly. We hear often about discovering our gifts and about building on our gifts. You’ve added an important third component: believing in our gifts. Thank you.
