We've all done it: The sweater we received from our Mother-in-law, the duplicate console game, the unwanted book we'll never read.
The bottom line: We don't like it, we don't want it, or we'd rather have something else.
And that leads me to the subject of this Blog post: The Great Gift Return.
- Do all that you can to cultivate, improve on, and leverage your giftings. Raw talent is a good start, but one must invest in themselves over one's lifetime.
- Learn new skills in addition to improving those that you have. There may be some latent creative seeds ready to bloom inside of you.
Disappointment over what we didn't get is a reality in Christmas gift receiving, and in talent/personality gift receiving. You can either accept what you have been given and make the best of it (not resignation but capitalization), or you can attempt a return. Good luck with that.
