Opening The Gift Of Childhood

I’m amazed and saddened at how many grown people over 40 believe they don’t know what they’re supposed to be doing. They say they don’t know what they want to do, what they’re good at or where their natural, God-given talents lie.

We lament lives cut short and talents taken to the grave rightfully so. Sadness fills the womb of Mother Earth. I mourn even more when we still have life and don’t do things on purpose despite the unopened gifts we know are already in the grave.

What do I think about, dream about, gravitate towards or do easily? What am I doing when time passes quickly and the thought of eating is an interruption? What do I do that I can’t wait to do again? In what area do I get a lot of ideas? What makes me feel alive?

Many answers are in the time prior to 18, our childhood years, a time when money was not a motive. Oftentimes what we once found challenging in our childhood is where our blessings and talents lie.

Here’s a novel idea. If you don’t know, ask somebody. It’s amazing how often family and friends can confirm what we can’t believe.

To be a success in life is to work with what you’ve got and make the most of what you have. You don’t have to be a public star to be a superstar. Go ahead! Open your gifts! If you’ve already been a faithful steward with one gift, then open another gift.

I’m 44 and just recently realized I’m supposed to write. This is a whole other level from wanting to, liking to or loving to. Please share when and what you’ve realized you’re supposed to do. What fulfills you fills the world with the joy of another gift being opened.

  1. I'm not a writer in the full sense like you but at 56 I'm trying new paths and getting connected with creative people. Thanks for sharing your intelligent and thought provoking blog.


  2. When we were children my sister i I sat in our garden while she told me magical fairy stories. I was enchanted and always felt she should write and I was planning to draw. Thanks for reminding me. You have found your spirit in writing or should I say expressed it. I'm very happy for you.

  3. A writer in any sense to the degree that satisfies that writer is a writer in the full sense.

  4. I really really like the part about having to open a gift and then opening another. It's as if the mysteries of life can be unfolded only when our minds are open to them. Thanks for writing this post. Definitely something to keep in mind when there are people out there who need to recognize what they already have since every person out there has at least one gift. :)

  5. Gifts are a frequent topic since so much of the fulfilling part of life is associated with them. It's true mysteries are right there waiting to reveal themselves if we would only use the many keys such as nature, nutrients, spirit, history, learning and much more.
