The other day I was talking to a friend about my plans for the rest of day, mentioning maybe working on one of my blogs. She commented about that, stating that she wishes she could write well enough to blog. Mind you, she knows the English language and grammar quite well, so she can write well. Her belief is that she does not have the proper voice to write a blog.
It got me thinking about many things in life. This woman has spent a great deal of her adult life devoted to belly dancing. She can dance extremely well, and is always working to make her dance better. If she spent that same amount of time working on her written voice, I bet she could do really well at it. The problem is, we only have so much time in the day, and we can only choose so many things to work on. Obviously, right now, writing is not one of them for her, and that's ok.
Rather than getting down about what you think you cannot do well, devote yourself to the things you think you can be fantastic at. That is where life truly is lived. If everyone did the same things, life would be so boring. Allow the color and light in your life to shine, share it with others. Maybe even try something that you think you can't do. You might be surprised with yourself.

Namaste my friends,
