“God gave the gift of artists so that people can dream while they are awake.”–Steve Vai
You all have been given a gift.
Gift. A thing given willingly to someone without payment; a present
What if it could talk? What would he or she…say?
Hello. I’m your gift. I’m something entirely different to everyone…and everyone uses me different. Some more than others. Some not at all. The writer of this post believes a Creator gave this to you. But this isn’t about religion. I have some questions for you.
What will you do with me today? Put me in a corner and punish me for not being good enough? Will you yell at me? Tell me I’m not worth your time? Will you stomp on me and push me against the dirt and spit on me? Will you believe you are not good enough to have this gift? Put me in a closet and forget me?
Or will you embrace me, tightly?
Accept that you have been freely given this gift?
Will you be grateful for it?
Will you sing at the top of your lungs?
Will you write your story…like only you can?
Will you tell that person something great…something that could save their life? Something that will inspire the dim light within their hearts to grow into a blazing fire?
Will you work me?
Will you be that teacher? Will you love?
Use me for good.
Channel me into something that could inspire another who will in turn inspire many more…who will then, perhaps, change the world?
I am your gift. What will you do with me?!
Up to you.
Let’s do this.
…if We already are…more power to you, my Friend!!!
