What Is The Best Use Of My Talents?
Lately my husband and I have been discussing our talents and if we are using them wisely. It’s been an interesting discussion and one that we have mulled over and over and over.
We all have special talents and skills that are unique - things that come naturally to us that we are just inherently good at.
I am inherently good at music and singing. I’ve always just had a knack for it - and sure, lessons and practice make me much better, but even without practice, I am a better singer than your average person.
My husband is unusually good at fixing things. He has an incredible talent for troubleshooting problems and then figuring out the solution. He is so detail oriented and can put a plan together and see it through.
We both have lots of other talents as well, so it’s been an interesting conversation about whether or not we are using our talents or if we are just letting them go to waste.
I’m in a season with small children where I’m finding it hard to make time for any sort of music activities. I used to sing regularly at my church and would have jam sessions with my friends. So that particular talent is something that I’m not really using at the current time.
My husband is working at a job right now where some of his talents are being used, but we’ve never really been able to figure out where his specific skill set would be most useful and utilized. It’s something we’ve always struggled to figure out.
The thing is that we often enjoy doing tasks or jobs that make good use of our talents - it’s doing something that we are good at! So today I would encourage you to ask yourself if you are making the best use of your talents…the world needs you and your skills 🙂
