The meaning of life is to find your gift.
The purpose is to give it away.

 Pablo Picasso

None of us handle God's gifts perfectly. We fumble and squander. They’re not just things we do with our time. Our gifts reflect who we are at our very core, and who the world needs us to be. When we deny that, we deny our true nature and cause ourselves a lot of pain.

Our gifts point us in the right direction, help us focus, and show us a clear path to joy. When we discover our gifts and learn how to use them, we no longer worry about who we are and why we’re here.


When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, I used everything you gave me.

Erma Bombeck

 Talents are like gifts that you received when you were born. They are to be found within yourself.

When we do what we’re good at, what we truly love to do, and we share it with the world, it helps other people find their way, too.

Your talent is God's gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.

Leo Buscaglia

I have never thought of gifts from this stand point. How unique and true! I like Erma.

I've never considered myself as having anything special to offer, but I'm not about to stop trying to discover what lies beneath. :)

nobody should deny their true nature. "Talents are like gifts that you received when you were born. "
