Snowflake Challenge Day 8  

Snowflake Challenge Day 8

When I was growing up, I always wanted to have a talent. Something that my mother could brag about to other mothers at their weekly meetings. The ability to play a musical instrument. To be able to dance or sing or paint or draw or twirl a baton or march in a band or tame animals or compete in beauty pageants, or anything, really. If I had a talent as a kid, I had no clue what it was.

It's taken me a long time to realize that we all have a talent of some sort, though it often takes a while to figure out what your talents are. Sometimes, if you're lucky, it's related to what you're passionate about. Sometimes it's not. Either way, it's just another layer of complexity that makes us who we are.

In your own space, talk about a talent (or talents) you have. Everyone's got something they're good at. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

  1. I am really good at language. I had no idea that being able to write well or to read literature and innately understand it was a unique talent. I always thought if I could do it, anyone could. My high school English teacher was the one who finally told me that I was able to do something not everyone could. This was a complete surprise to me. Not saying I'm perfect because goodness knows I'm not. But I don't struggle with writing as some people do.
  2. I love to knit, crochet, sew, do stained glass. I wish I finished more of the projects I start. But I'm good with my hands when it comes to crafts.
