I think I write about fear a lot. I write about it because it is a root of all negativity I see in the world. Fear have many faces. Today I won't write about fear as much as about something that we need to do despite how scary it may be.
We often concentrate on ourselves and subdue to our fears, that we forget that the gift we have is not for us alone but for others to experience as well. We fear making the decision of following our passion and seeing it through. We fear of what others may think of us and about the actions we take.
We then express some kind of selfishness and decide that it is not worth for us to follow our passion, out of fear of not meeting society's expectations or not measuring up to the yardsticks that media or society expect us to measure up to.
But our talent (or talents) is not for us to keep, it is "given" to us, so we can share it with the world. So other people too can experience it, enjoy it.
Everyone has a talent or a few. It doesn't have to be anything special. We often think of talent as one of those "things" that make people popular like painting, playing an instrument being a singer or an actor. I think it is more of a quality we all have rather than specific inclination or predisposition.
Some of us are empathetic and are there when other people need our help or advice. That could be your talent.
Some of us make people smile, make their day better. That could be your talent.
You love to work in your garden, taking care of plants. That could be your talent.
It is not so much of what you do but who you are as a person. Only you know how to be yourself, and being yourself is a talent in itself, it is very valuable. It is the mixture of perspectives, of how we view and experience the world that could make our lives richer, better for all of us.
We are all unique in our expression of being human. We could all be musicians, yet if we fully express ourselves, the music we'll each make will have its own unique flavor. It doesn't really matter what you do. There aren't any extra points for being this or that. You only get points if you share yourself with others.
We are all needed, here on Earth. We all have a purpose. It is up to us, if we'll live that purpose or not. Whatever it is we have in our hearts, we need to share it with others. We need to let other people experience the best in us, because it is not only for our enjoyment that we are here, but for others to experience us as well.
