Everybody has a gift, and I don’t mean a present. I mean a hard practiced or natural gift to share with the world. So share it with the world, and share it now.
There is nothing to save it for. When your time is up you’re not getting any more. We have opportunities, now, to make differences in the lives of others.
Your gift may be through writing, through music, or through comedy. In addition, you might be an artist, an athlete, or a doctor.
Whatever your gift is, find a way to pass some of it on and share it.
It’s such a beautiful world we live in. Sure, it seems as if more and more crap continues to happen. Perhaps it’s even true that more and more crap is happening. Well, it’s not going to stop. It has always been that way and will always be that way. People are different and that’s what makes the world tick. It’s sort of yin and yang effect.
There is, I believe, an equal amount of good out in the world. Maybe it doesn’t make the headline story on the five o’clock news. Maybe it doesn’t make the front page of the newspaper. Perhaps the tabloids aren’t covering the good at all. Who cares. Be the good.
If we share our gifts it comes back to us two-fold. For starters, we’re obviously helping another person. We have helped that person(s) in a great way. Secondarily, studies have shown that displaying compassion and helping others is a boost to our own selves. We are killing two birds with one stone, so to speak.
I’d say figure out what your gift is now, but you already know. It’s that thing that you’re contemplating now; yeah that’s it. So now figure out a plan to spread it as far as you can.
