365 Inspirations—28: Sharing

“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'” ―Erma Bombeck

I believe we are all here for a reason and each and every one of us has something to share or offer. You may not believe it, but you have a gift or gift(s). There's only one of you and only you can do things the way you do them.

I decided it was high time to offer something new to world. I have had my blog here since 2009. In 2010 I blogged lessons for 365 days, in 2011 I did weekly lessons and in 2012 my book, Lessons from the Monk I Married, was born and I went on a east and west coast tour with my husband and blogged about the experience. Now I'm offering 365 Inspirations for 2013. Not an easy task, but I get so much inspiration from sharing with others and discovering others gifts and talents.

Blogging every single day takes time and effort, but I'm committed to this opening and this sharing. Recently I felt like I wanted to offer more. I love how easy it is to connect via computer with access to blogs, Facebook, Twitter, etc., but I've recently felt like I want to share what I have learned through more of a personal relationship.

I don't know if you noticed, but I added new tabs to my blog. I should have done it months ago, but I was a bit fearful. I hesitated a long time and finally took the afternoon and added all the information above that I've wanted to add for months, but was afraid to do for whatever reason.

In Retreats and Classes, I'm currently offering a new class called Discover Your Passion and Live an Authentic Life. You can read all about it in this section. All of my writing has been about finding the inspirational all around me and discovering my true path. My blogging journey has lead me to an agent, a publisher and a host of other amazing writers and bloggers. I could never have dreamed of this when I started my journey here. Blogging helped me let go of so much fear and has opened doors to so many interesting and new things in my life. I'm ready to share that and to help others move past fear and into living fully and authentically, on whatever path one chooses.

So if you are ready to take a leap of faith, please join me on this journey here or by taking my newly offered series of classes! I can't wait to see what life has in store for you!

Do you have any special talents or gifts? What are they? Do you believe you have something to share with others? What is it?

  1. I think if I have a special talent it is being a good listener. When I ask people how they are doing, I genuinely want to know. I believe this skill serves me well in life, for we all want someone to listen to us when we need an outlet.

  2. Your new class sounds like a great opportunity!

    I have always loved to write. I try to use my writing to encourage others and let them know they are not alone. I am trying to live a life of connection, and I try to use my writing to that end. I use my blog to reach out to others. I also am working on a memoir.

    1. HI Tina, I love that you are sharing this talent with so many people on your blog. I think it really is important to let people know they are not alone. Connection is so important and I believe through our connection with others we are able to see more clearly our own gifts and talents. So wonderful to hear you are also working on a memoir!

  4. After I retired I trained to be a mediator. To listen and to help people find solutions is so, so rewarding.
