BE YOURSELF, WHO ELSE IS BETTER QUALIFIED?
Humans, be it old or young, short or tall, smart or dull, fat or thin, etc has specific gifts, talents and strength, I call it endowments.
The Bible says in the book of Corinthians:
Each man has its own endowment from God.
Conspicuously, so many people actually spend their entire life trying to modify or alter the way they were made.
The Bible also recorded that after the creation of man, it pleased God.
Shouldn't we be pleased too?
A Philosopher, (Marcus Aurelius) said:
Take full account of the excellencies which you posses and in gratitude remember how you would crave after them if you have them not.
So many people tends to crave for what they aren't and under rate what they are (lack of contentment).
William Mathew said:
One well cultivated talent, deepened and enlarged, is worth 100 shallow faculties.
One happiness about life is to discover that which you were created to be. Nurture it and do it like you're the only one created to do such. It brings an inner joy and a fulfilment that pleases the soil.
Too many people take only their wants into consideration, never their talents and abilities.
Deep down inside, God has endowed everyone with an outstanding ability and talents.
If you're a musician, then make music, if you're a fashion designer, design and pray to God for creativity and explore. If you're a teacher, teach and be a good one. You will be amazed with the number of lives you'll affect positively.
There are so many people who would hanker that which you have undervalued. If that which you've craved to do wasn't nurtured and explored. I don't think there will be any thought of craving for it.
Be what you are and you'll be at peace with yourself.
(E. E. Cummings) pointed out:
To be a nobody but yourself in a world which is striving its best, day and night, to make you everybody else-means to fight the hardest battle which any man can fight and never stop fighting.
That which you undervalue is someone's prayer point.
Appreciate whatever you are, be a GOOD ONE, and then you'll find peace with yourself.
Thanks for your time. Until next time I still remain
