What is your gift?

This is a question that I’ve been pondering for a while now, what do I have to offer? Is it enough? I’ve thought of all the skills that I have acquired over the years and I’ve only put a few into practice so I can’t say that I’ve mastered some of them. But the only thing that rings true to my heart is love, the only thing I can say I can truly offer is love. I have nothing more, not even my well-earned titles will be with me once I leave this body, but I do have love-that is not extinguishable, it is eternal.

I’ve experienced many challenges that have tested my will to survive, my will to love, and I’ve overcome them. As challenging as they have been they have not taken the only thing that truly matters-love. There are many people that tried to cause me harm, that stabbed me in the heart one too many times, yet they did not succeed in taking love from me, it’s the only thing that kept me alive.

I live now with a greater understanding of this life I’ve been given and the people that have crossed my path and I see why the events that I experienced had to take place. I also see how it is interlinked with much of humanity and the suffering that exists. I may not have much, but I do have love, and to the best of my ability I will share this love. One day at a time, one step at a time.
