Born This Way

The other night, and by the other night I mean a week ago, I was with a group of friends and a conversation started about wishing we were all born to do one great thing.  Being born with one amazing talent that will sustain you for the rest of your life, something you'll enjoy that just comes naturally. Unfortunately I was not born with this gift.

I'm ok at a lot of little things that allow me to be of service to others and keep myself entertained, but no real talent I could make a living off of.  Am I missing the point of my little talents?  Perhaps, but aren't we always told to do what you love and love what you do?  I definitely don't fit this statement and sadly I don't think many of us do, but for those that do: how??  I mean really, how does some chick in Wisconsin realize her talent in life is making cast iron skillets in the shape of the fifty states? (Martha Stewart Living reference).  I suppose passion has a lot do with it.  Passion, drive, patience and faith. 

I've been in this whirlwind of trying to find my place for some time now, but only in the past week has it really been weighing on me.  Lord knows I'm not getting any younger and there's no time like the present.  I need to find my passion, that one thing I know I could do forever and love.  


  1. lindsey! you are good at a million things! i would rather be really good at a lot of little small things than one good thing. like imagine if all you were good at was singing.. ok that'd be cool during concerts but then what? if you didnt know how to entertain or cook or enjoy a good book or decorate, thrift, BAKE, movie watch, comfort others, inspire others, ( listing just a few things you THRIVE at) create, be spontaneous, edit photos, decorate, explore new cities, or make new friends then life would be so lame! lots of little talents or passions are better than just one.
