Soon after, a gifted musician began playing the piano. Not only was his talent something to marvel at, but also, his ability to talk with people while continuing to play!
A couple of weeks ago, my husband received another 6-hour chemo treatment at the Mayo Clinic. Because I wasn’t permitted in the sterile room, I settled into a seat in the atrium to work for the day.
As I worked, I found myself tapping my toes and listening to the music. It was obvious that he was enjoying sharing his talent, and in doing so, was blessing others.
In contrast, I’ve learned that most women believe things that make them withhold their talents. Convinced that what they have to offer is somehow not good enough, they keep their talents hidden.
Living wholeheartedly can be described as, “living with nothing to hide, nothing to fear, nothing to prove, and nothing to lose.” However, to live wholeheartedly you must learn to LIKE yourself (to embrace and value the incredible woman that God created in YOU). In the process, you’ll find the confidence to share your talents with others, exactly as God intended.
As the pianist brought his playing to an end, I went over and thanked him. He gave a humble response, but it felt good to let him know what a blessing he’d been to me.
Learning to LIKE yourself frees you to share your talents with the world – and keep in mind, there are a lot of people who need what you have to offer!
