Did you know that you have a gift that no one else in the world possesses? Maybe you have already discovered it, although it isn’t waiting for you in a box, wrapped in pretty paper and ribbon.
This special gift is your ability to live a life that expresses your unique personality and your individual talents through the work that you choose to do, the way you spend your free time and through your relationships.
Although it may seem hidden at first, when you search for your gift with an open mind and a free spirit, it will be there. Once you have found it, if you follow it with courage and persistence, it will reward you with a happiness and deep satisfaction nothing else can provide.
Now, it does not matter how big or important you think your gift is. All that matters is that it is yours and that you are free to give it. When you do give it, it doesn’t deplete you – it validates and fills you, because true, no-strings-attached giving reaffirms the meaning of life.
It is hard to go comparison-shopping when it comes to finding your special gift, because you can’t try on someone else’s life. However, in order to really live your own life, you need to be willing to listen to your heart, pay whatever it costs, and make a firm commitment not to turn back. Be happy that you have the choice! If you do these things, you will find your gift. And no one can take it away from you, because it is you.
You will also find that you have more to give to others than you ever dreamed possible. You have a miraculous gift to give, that gift of You. And whether you realize it or not, there are a whole lot of people out there who desperately need to receive it.
