The writer's conference looms straight ahead and I'm finalizing my speaking notes for Saturday. I had gathered so much information, I had the job of paring down to essentials. It's been a good exercise as now everything is fresh in my mind again. Getting excited now!
I just enjoyed reading a posting by Kim de Young at the Get It Done Girl. She shares about how women tend not to truly value the gifts they have because they come so easily to them. I know I've done that in the past, so it was good to be reminded to value the gifts that have been given to us to share. Kim says,
"What I’ve noticed for myself and what I want to share with you is the importance of noticing that which comes easily to you, and placing value on it. What’s easy for you probably isn’t what comes easily to others. And, if you’re like most women, you’re probably taking your gift for granted. We do that to ourselves very often. We don’t often value that which comes easily. For me, stepping into my gift, opened up so many opportunities that I could never have imagined a year ago." Click here for the complete post.
For instance, some people ask if I'm nervous about speaking this weekend, but I'm not. Because I know from past experience that when I get in front of a classroom of people, my teaching gift slips on as easily as comfy slippers and I feel quite at home.
Have you ever experienced that? Where you just know this is where you're supposed to be and what you're supposed to be doing?
With that I'm off now...
