Hidden Talents

Do you share your talents with your family?

We all have things we love to do and we do them well, but do we share them with our loved ones?

Do we sing and dance together?
I’m sure we thought we would.
Do we paint pictures and tell stories?
Do we bake cupcakes and plant vegetables?
Do we write poetry and build furniture?
Does a yoga instructor teach her children yoga?

We all have parts to us that are special and unique.  Many of us love doing these few precious things that make us so happy.

But, do we keep them to ourselves?  Are we afraid that if we do them too often or with too many people they won’t be special? 

Now let’s think without fear.  Who better to share the best parts of ourselves then our loves ones.  They might not love it or be as good at it as you are, but you are opening their eyes and minds to your heart.  They can’t help but see the beauty in that.  They in turn, will learn how to share what’s in their hearts as well.

Change #4:  Have a talent show with your friends or family.  In a fun and safe setting, open up to those closest to you and show each other what you are made of. 

Now that will definitely make the world a more beautiful place.
