I often hear people say that when they get around to it, they will do what makes them really happy. I see their eyes light up and hear their voices rise with delight as they discuss in detail their natural gifts and abilities which they do only when they have time.  

 

But alas, their enthusiasm dissipates and the fire in their eyes fizzle as they proclaim that participation in work, parental duties, volunteer and/or church leaves them little time or energy to do what truly brings them joy.  

 

 

This taught me that many people choose to endure their lives, rather than enjoy them. In my opinion, that’s hardly living! I don’t want to merely exist, I want to LIVE! 

 

 

 

When was the last time you did something which brought you such eternal elation that you felt like you were having an out of body experience?

 

 

This happens to me whenever I stand before a crowd and speak. It is like a beam of light from heaven illuminates my body and sends an electrical charge through every fiber of my being. If feels like a flood of universal approval descends upon my body and charges me with energy beyond this terrestrial realm!

 

 

What you love and are interested in is a clue to what your gift is. The closer you vibrate to the frequency of what you’re supposed to be doing (using your gift(s) to fulfill your purpose), the more ideal and wonderful life becomes and the more joy you will experience.

 

Discover your gift, your passion, and learn to truly LIVE! #ThisIsJoyfulLiving!

Quoting rmac22:

The difference between a gift and a skill is subtle. When you are using a gift your results exceed your fumbling efforts; sometimes shockingly so. When the words you used seem in hindsight to be against all logic, all wrong, even against your training and experience, and yet the person to whom you were talking reports to you later that what you said was exactly what they needed to hear. They wonder how you could possibly know who they were and what they needed. My gifts, so I am told, are teaching and counseling. Not that I have attempted in any way to use them here. rmac


If those are your gifts, why not give them a try here? You seem to have many smart things to say, Mac. Why not give them a try?

Oh my! What wonderful gifts!!!

 

I can't want to experience your gifts of teaching and counseling! You certainly write very beautifully.I can only imagine how great of a teacher/counselor you are! Its amazing that the more you vibrate to the frequency to what you were born to do, the more joyful and exhilerating your life becomes! How awesome!

 

Thank you for sharing what your gifts are with us! You ROCK!

Thank you all! I enjoyed reading your feedback! Does anyone care to share their gifts..what they are? Mine is writing and speaking. I use these gifts to fulfill my purpose which is to INSPIRE PEOPLE TO REACH THEIR HIGHEST POTENTIAL. :)

 

 

 

Your turn... even if you aren't sure, what do you think your gift is?

 

What you love and are interested in is a clue to what your gift is.

The moments of intensity remain like an addiction to the rush...that chill of recognition that we savor....to be repeated as often as we can

Quoting Livnlov:

Hi Sister, When I was very young, it was firmly and frequently drummed into me by my parents (both of them - guilty!) that I was going to be a SURGEON! Because I was a child genius. Well, well, well....I hate to cut, prick or stitch anything other than fabric....so how the hell was I going to be a surgeon when I can't cut and I can't suture? Oh that didn't seem to matter to my parents. Anyhow, you did not say no to my parents, so I went along and Studied Biochemistry en-route to Med School and managed to graduate almost top of the class. Cut the long story short, I escaped after my Bachelors! Jeez, I think back now, and I wonder what a lousy surgeon I would have made and how miserable my life would have been. I love talking, analysing, befriending and genuinely caring about people around me - and I found a career that allows me to do all that that WORK is not a chore, but such a joy! I think, we need to make time to enjoy our lives, choose to do the things that make us happy and feel fulfilled. I remember a guy once said, find your passion and do it for a living - that way you get paid to do what you enjoy anyways. Finally, because we are so engrossed in wanting to finally arrive at our destination, we often forget to enjoy the process. Today's future destination once reached becomes the past or the process very quickly Take the time to enjoy life - and not endure it! Once again very well written, sister!


I am so impressed by what you have written, Livnlov. Would you please tell us what career you finally settled on? "Inquiring Minds Want to Know." LOL And congratulations on having the strength to break away from parental control to find your own purpose. Great irony here. Your story is the same, and yet the antithesis of, parents who believe, and conviince their child, that he/she will never amount to anything. Yes, same difference, in the end. It amounts to one thing: Parents trying to control their children's lives instead of recognizing and encouraging their children's strengths. Once, again, congratulations to you. You are, for finding your OWN WAY, a major success. God bless.
