I believe every person in the world is created for a reason and has their own individual gift that they can give to others daily. I think of a gift as a way we present ourselves to others, how we can help or be a positive impact to those we come into contact with daily.
Can you imagine the world we’d be living in if everyone knew what their gifts were and actively used them for good??
I believe that we should be actively fanning the flame of our gifts. When there’s a fire, you can feed the flame by fanning it. As you fan it, the flame gets more intense and grows!
The first step is recognizing your gift. Some of you may know what your gift is, but it’s been sitting on the shelf collecting dust or you only bring it out once in a while. Others of you may know your gift well and actively use it – which is legit! And lastly, some of you never knew you had a gift and need to work to discover it – and this is an incredible place to start!
A few years back I realized my gift and mission in life, and it is “to be a light and to encourage others.” It’s very simple, but it’s something I strive to give to others in my day to day activities. From talking to the grocery store clerks to giving people a smile, I believe my gift can bring a positive impact to others! However, the only way I can help people, is if I use it! When I’m actively feeding into my gift and using it to help others daily, there’s more meaning to life and I feel a sense of purpose in this big world we’re living in.
Do you believe you have a specific gift that you can give to others on a daily basis? I want to encourage you to discover your gift (or dust it off the shelves) and actively use it! This world needs you, so begin to fan into flame your gift.
I hope you have a great day!
