Put Some Respect On Your Gifts/Talents!

Great Ra’sing Readers! Happy Tuesday! It’s another day for me to share my rubies of wisdom. It’s another day to be GREAT! Let’s abundant our day for ourselves and our family. May our work and intentions be our prayer for good for ourselves and our family! It shall be done!

Readers I hope you had a good night’s rest. My night was kind of stuffy due to the dry air. I forgot to put a bowl of water in my room to retain moisture. It’ll definitely be easier to breathe.

Today let’s focus on our gifts/talents. What are your gifts/talents? Have you been utilizing them? Or have you been allowing them to expand with greatness? Our gifts/talents are given to us to make the world more meaningful and full of purpose. Sometimes people are clueless about their gifts/talents, because they don’t pay attention to what they are capable of doing. Marie Curie said it best, “we must believe that we are gifted for something!” One of those gifts/talents will lead us to our passion. As Massimo Bottura puts it “one day, if you have a little bit of talent and a lot of hard work, you’re going to find out who you are.” How exciting is that? To know that our talent and hard work will add to our characteristics does wonder to our work ethic.


I look at our gifts/talents as a whole bunch of presents that are waiting to be opened. As you open each present, be prepared to embrace whatever you’re about to discover. Remember these discoveries are from within that needed to make itself known to you and the world. When we are operating in our gifts/talents, we should be feeling a sense of peace and power within us knowing that we are doing our part to make the world a better place. Susan B. Anthony once said, “the older I get, the greater power I seem to have to help the world.” I can relate, because as I matured, I started utilizing my wisdom, then I felt this peace and power to share my wisdom. It’s so much wisdom within me causing me to speak life. Daily my friend sends me amazing quotes which I’m very appreciative of. The type of quotes he sends me always have me in my intuitive state to search for a deeper meaning. This one stood out, “Don’t try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say” by Barbara Kingsolver. I wouldn’t dare stress myself in trying to figure out what people would like to hear from me. There is power in my words and I know what I say and write will always resonate with someone.

Cynthia Ozick said it perfectly; “We often take for granted the very things (gifts/talents) that most deserve our gratitude!” Are you expressing gratitude for your gifts/talents? If not, why are you wasting them? Don’t let anymore time go by not crafting/honing your gifts no matter where you are. Trust and believe that your gifts/talents are your abundance of wealth, health, happiness, peace, and so much more. Stop doubting what you’re capable of doing. William Shakespeare said, “our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.” That’s deep! Doubts never have our best interest at heart. All it do is have us project fear of failure into the universe without realizing failure is apart of life, that’s if you get back up and try again. It may take three to six tries before you get it right, but all that matters is that you tried and got stronger and more determined after each try.

Let’s take playing the video game for an example such as Super Mario Brothers. That was my favorite game on the Nintendo system during my childhood while growing up. Each level that my character died despite alternating between Mario and Luigi, I became more determined and optimistic to beat the level. I made sure I had Yogi to help my character whether that was to jump high and/or eat those creatures. And when I passed each level, I would yell “yessssss!! About time!!!!” I know ya’ll can relate when playing any game especially chess. I love to say “Checkmate!” The point I’m trying to make in the words of Stephen King, “Optimism is a perfectly legitimate response to failure.” Failure is apart of life, but having optimism is what makes failure a learning lesson to try another way to accomplish whatever it is we’re trying to accomplish.

I enjoy writing this blog, but that’s nothing new especially when I love sharing rubies of wisdom. With all that being said my lovely readers, I challenge you to rediscover your gifts/talents, hone them, and acknowledge their purpose for you and others. But I must warn you with this message I received from my ancestors a few days ago, “stop putting people on your platform that don’t support you nor acknowledge their gratitude to you!” DEEP!!! That was definitely a message for me knowing I love to see people win and I clap for them. With my gifts/talents, I put them on my platform, but they don’t thank me, nor support me nor clap for me. So what does that tells me? It means that my gifts/talents are not to be shared with everyone in other words they cannot utilize my gifts/talents for their own personal gain. Why? Because they are not me and they can’t do what I do! This is why it’s important for people to tap into or rediscover their gifts/talents. There are no short cuts in trying to take and/or use someone else’s gifts/talents. I’m going to leave this quote with you by Beyonce Knowles, “Don’t try to lessen yourself for the world; let the world catch up to you!” Here’s a quote from my book; Evolution of Spiritually Nakedness, “Never take anyone’s doubts of your abilities to heart. They see your capabilities even when you don’t see it” Kamil Gerald.

Abundance, peace, prosperity, happiness, and good health!
