Will you use those talents or share those words of wisdom with those around you?


When you’re young, most of your focus is on what you wish to see happen in the future for yourself. Youth is one of those things that tends to make you focus more on yourself than community or others. But as you age, you learn that there is more to this world and life than just fulfilling your own dreams and pursuing your own desires. Now that I’m past my midlife age, I think more about what I can do to help others through life and how I can help to improve the world around me and try to leave some sort of legacy to ensure that I left something to be remembered by.

I’m a firm believer that each individual has some unique and special talent or wisdom that can benefit others in one fashion or another. The only question is, will you use those talents or share those words of wisdom with those around you? It doesn’t really matter what kind of talent it is, even if it’s something as simple as you’re good at making kid’s toys or model airplanes. Maybe those might not directly cause any change in the world but, you could sell those toys or model airplanes generate cash, and donate it to a cause or use it for some type of charity.

Let’s say your skill is that you’re very good at custodial duties, you could go to elderly people or handicapped individuals’ residences and clean up for them. If you put your mind to it, you can always find a way of using your talent to help others around you and those in need.  When it comes to wisdom or education you can always pass that down to younger generations or help train others to do things and help them learn new ways to cope with issues in their lives.

Let’s say you’re a mathematician you can teach the younger generation and older generations how to balance a checkbook, create a household budget or do their taxes. Let’s say you’re very proficient with legal things maybe not even a lawyer just someone who’s very apt with legal terms and documents and contracts, you can help a lot of elderly people with dealing with things such as Social Security and Medicare and so on.

Of course, these are just suggestions and some of them may not be that realistic but it gives you an idea of the point that I’m trying to make. I myself have a love of writing and by nature, I am a deep thinker a ponderer a philosopher of sorts. When I was a teenager in high school I kind of played a dear Andy to most girls that were my friends and some of my male friends as well, and I always like to ponder on stuff such as the origin of life and had an interest in psychology.

Due to those interests and that love of writing, I decided to start several blogs and post blog articles aimed at helping people deal with emotional and mental issues along with some general blogs dealing with life in a philosophical sort of way. Life is very short, and very precious as we all know, So what time we have on earth we should do what we can to help other people and also try and leave behind some sort of legacy so people know we existed.

We should also try to make this a better place for future generations to enjoy and live in. Though it may be our natural instinct to be focused on our own well-being and our pursuit of our desires, there is also the instinct to be caregivers nurturers, and helpmates to those around us. Which side of our basic nature we choose to embrace is up to the individual, though choosing to be the helpmate, nurturer, and/or caregiver will benefit not only ourselves but those around us as well.

We can always strive to find a balance between the instinct to pursue our goals and desires and the instinct to be a caregiver, help mate, and or nurturer. There is no reason why we can’t take care of ourselves and take care of others at the same time, for if we don’t take care of ourselves first we won’t be around to take care of those which we desire to help. So whatever gifts that you’ve been given in your life far as talent knowledge and skills try to use them not only the further your own goals but to aid those around you that are in need of some sort of assistance.

The more we give back to the community in the end the more we will receive from the community and the community itself will grow and become stronger. Well, that’s enough for me today, I appreciate you reading and I wish everyone a blessed and happy existence on this blue little marble we call home.
