It’s so easy to get caught up in the treadmill of your professional life. You didn’t intend things to get as chaotic as they have, but it sort of happened that way. One “busy professional thing” led to another and bam – it’s the same events day in and day out.
The dedication to the professional job is a great thing because it does pay the bills, however it creates a lopsided spirit. Your dreams tend to be pushed further and further to the wayside. The others areas in your life such as the spiritual and creative sides starts to whither and die.
Yes, you know what I’m talking about.
Once upon a time you had a talent… a gift that brought a massive, shameless smile to your face. The one that made your heart sing so loud, your spirit floated to the clouds with utter joy. The one that melted all the worry in your life away. The one that changed the lives of those around you for the better.
Now you’re feeling what I’m saying?
YOU…. You have a gift in your heart. Granted it may have been a while and you might recognize your gift once you brush all the dust away, but you have a gift that you can reclaim.
Take Action Prompt:
With a little spiritual elbow grease, you can reclaim some of your forgotten gifts. I bestow upon you to choose one of these activities to reconnect and reclaim your forgotten gifts.
- Daily meditation
- Daily journaling
- Daily listening to your intuition to guide you
- Daily connection with the world around
- Daily connection with the talent/gift you pushed to the side for the sake of the “job/family/etc”
- Create your own activity that connects your soul with its main purpose – to enjoy the gifts you have with your very soul.
It’s time to dust off the gift and put this magical piece of your spirit front and center of your life right now.
What are some forgotten gifts do you have within you that you need to reclaim? I would love to hear your story. Please share.
