First and for most, I appreciate that I do have skills and I use them!
Not a day goes by that I am not thankful for the gifts I have been given. They may not always be good, but I share them with people.
I write, I draw, I create, I cook, I love, and I heal.
Not a bad skill tool-kit I might say.
But the most that I am thankful for is that my work is, yes, well received, however the thing that matters most to me is that I am helping others. In my own small little way, I am making a difference in the lives of others. It warms my heart to know that my words help to heal broken hearts, old wounds, and past traumas. It also warms my heart to know that with my help future broken hearts, wounds, and traumas may happen, but that as a result of my help will be dulled ever so gently. That my poetry offers grace. That my Reiki offers health. That my food offers nourishment. That my voice offers peace. That my considerateness harnessed and shared via my skills with others offers love.
Life is hard enough, it is comforting to help others realize and know that we are not alone. Oddly enough, that is comforting to me: comforting others.
What do you love most about your skills?
Like, I said, its not a bad skill tool-kit to have. Can it be challenging at times? Yes. Does it sometimes take my focus away from my family and lover? Sadly, yes. But, as soon as I realize this, I pick up the phone or pick up my lover’s hand and whisper sweet somethings of gratitude for him as well. Because they are my grace, health, nourishment, and peace.
