Monday Mojo – Honour Your Gifts

What does the world need right now that you have to offer?

I don’t mean more of your time or energy, as you’re probably giving that out in tonnes anyway. I mean the genuine gifts that you bring to the party of life. 

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, I talked about the Five Ways to Wellbeing, one in particular is “Give”. The focus is very much on how giving goes hand in hand with feeling better. 

In the last few weeks, we’ve seen all sorts of chaos. It’s got to the point where I’m genuinely nervous of mentioning the “B(rexit)” word anymore, for fear of upsetting people.
Many remain divided.
Some are shifting viewpoints.
And a lot of people are passed caring.  

When the world is noisy and chaotic, it’s hard to see all the good in the world. The people who are going out of their way to make it a better place – people like you – not always through grand gestures, but sometimes through a smile, or wave, or a kindness in your words. You might even have forgotten all the good you do every day, just by being you. How talented you are.  And just how much you matter.  It’s especially hard if someone is trying to talk it out of you.

This week set the intention to Honour Your Gifts.  Acknowledge the journey that has brought you to this moment, the tools that its provided and your success rate at surviving (which is 100%). Take some time to consider how what you do every day, and your talents, makes a difference to the world of others. It might be in your smile, a kind word at the right moment, or even just holding space with someone who’s going through a difficult time. By celebrating and acknowledging your gifts, others are bound to notice, and you’ll bring out the best in them too.
