Have you ever watched someone with amazing talent do what they do best? It doesn’t matter if they are cooking food, painting, playing the piano, or using tools to build a wood trinket. I’m always amazed at people who have found what they are good at and watching them be genuinely happy while they’re doing it. The passion and intensity in their eyes and the calm that comes over them while they’re at their craft is aw inspiring. These people have found what makes them happy. Their God given talent.
Everyone has something that makes them happy. Give the most abrasive person in your neighborhood a reason to share their passion without consequence with you and watch them lighten up. You never know, the bearded biker man down the road you’re afraid to make eye contact with just might have a passion for helping kids learn to read. The old lady who yells at people for walking on her grass just might enjoy knitting blankets for cancer patients. I use these two examples because I know Mr. Biker and Mrs. Getoffmygrass. While helping others they smile. You can see into their soul, and it’s beautiful.
Find the one thing that makes you happier than anything else, and do it. Do it often. Do it proudly. If dancing like a complete fool barefoot in your front yard makes you happy, then do it. Who cares what the neighbors think. If its baking cupcakes, make a ton of them and share with the world (wouldn’t hurt to send me some by the way). If its blogging, get to it. Write your heart out. Stop caring what others think, do what makes you happy and don’t stop.
With all the anger and resentment in society today you need to be the light. Be the torch for the world to see. Be happy, be you, be unapologetic.
