When you were born you were given gifts and talents. Along with that, you were given the commission to use them to make this world a better place. If we ignore our gifts, we are inadvertently rejecting the very reason we were created. We are all created to live a life of purpose and that purpose is to impact the lives of others in a positive way. It is your commission to cultivate those gifts and talents and then express them fully. Whenever you share your gifts and talents with others you are doing exactly what you were created to do.
It is why we are here.
Who are we to diminish what the Divine has given us? Who are we to judge God’s handiwork? It seems as though we are so quick to recognize the gifts in other people, while simultaneously dousing ourselves with self-doubt and rejection. Why do we do that?
So many of us have been ingrained with the idea that we are purposeless, unvalued drones meandering around planet Earth until we die. Dear girl, it simply is not true. The truth is that you were created with a divine purpose that needs to be manifested. Your life’s purpose is about the lives of others. Your family, your friends, your community, no matter the size, needs what you have to offer.
This is not about being rich or famous. This also is not about likes and shares on social media. I am talking about you living your life so that you positively influence those around you. You see, when you live your purpose and express your gifts, it encourages those around you to do the same. It is our hope, that in the end it is a chain reaction of people living their lives with purpose, together. When I see you rising and contributing to this world, it encourages me to do the same. We share the light with each other and with everyone else.
I’ve spent a lot of time (like this morning) worrying that I would run out of things to say. I worried I wasn’t doing enough and that what I had to share was limited. That is not how it works. The more you give of yourself and your gifts, the more you cultivate it, the more it flows through you in abundance. You are a vessel. Pour freely from your cup. Without doubt, what you have to offer has value.
