Born with it ...

Do you check to see who the blog of the day is ?
(Blog of the day is what they call blog of note.
 Each day there is a new one. )
I do every once in a while.
That's how I found a few of my favorites.
Today is someone who draws.
And, I thought how amazing that is.
Not the drawing exactly but having a skill.
I do not have one.
Don't play the piano, cook, na da, nothing.
I can't even imagine what it feels like to
be that good at something.
Anything ..
I'm just a semi average gal.
Strolling through life.
Enjoying what I see and hear.
Ok, not always but you get the idea.
I have done nothing grand or fabulous.
Not famous for anything really.
What I am is nice.
Maybe that's my talent.
I'm a good listener.
I try to see both sides of every story.
The grey, black and white or purple sometimes.
So, when I see something or someone
who has talent,
I am in wonder.
How did they get it ?
Born with it or working at it for years ?
Had to have some sort of natural skill
don't ya think ?
Anyway, I thought I'd ask you all ...
Do you have a talent ?

(I'm asking all this while I eat
my banana. The things you
do when eating lunch.)

You are nice :) You are also talented. Your photos, your writing are wonderful.

Maybe you are waiting for something to be too obvious-- too grand. All skills start small. Talent gets discovered. I think you are a good encourager and a loving friend to the furs and the fleshies. Your writing is coming along beautifully and you take great pictures. Develope what you have.. practise.. experiment. You are unique-- there is no one else exactly like you. You are still here for a reason. Go for it!

PS What is the Blog of the Day?

Nancy said...

No, not really. I like to cook and have some success at it, but I'm not as talented as I would like to be :-)

For some reason I never check Blog of Note, despite being given the honor. I wouldn't have known unless people had commented and had congratulated me. I wonder how many wonderful blogs I'm missing?

I love the mental image of you eating a banana and thinking these thoughts.

We have seen the blog of the day... but aren't exactly sure where. We think you have talent ... you are what you do. You have a way with words.

people tell me all they time they wish they had a talent, that they could draw like me. But you know, there are many talents I wish I had. I think everyone has a talent. Hard to discover your own when you are wishing after someone else's. There are all kinds of talents, not just artistic ones. My sone had two talents. he's a finder and a fixer.

I used to have a talent - playing the piano. I was never, nor ever would be, a virtuoso, but I had the ear for it, and the touch. But my small hands would always have held me back. So I let it go. Part of any talent is a gift, the other part is consistent hard work. I also didn't like to practice. So there you go.

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
