We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.
I’m melancholy. I sit here after a few champagnes, feeling a bit ill. It’s not because I drank too much. I’ve felt clammy and fatigued all day and I think I am really run down. Of course, I shouldn’t be drinking. I know. I just needed something to take the edge off. I mean – It’s Friday night. It’s bad enough that I cancelled my plans as I felt like shite. And I I did feel like shite ALL day. And now I feel even more like shite as I’m missing out on something I really wanted to go to. But, I needed to take a stand and come straight home from work, instead of hitting the town. I just needed to take time out and ground myself. The plan is to do it for the entire weekend…I won’t leave the house for any other reason except to get groceries…
Which brings me to the quote. Stevie Wonder. Soul King. Amazing man. I never really appreciated him until I met my partner – Denis – who introduced me to the world of soul and R’n’B. Up until then I had been a grunge/metal/alternative girl (with a secret love for pop/dance music).
‘We all have the ability.’
We do. It’s just we often don’t recognise that we do. We put such limitations on ourselves sometimes, we just don’t realise our own self-worth and what we are capable of…what we CAN do.
‘The difference is how we use it.’
Well said. We all live our lives a certain way, according to a certain creed. We use our abilities for good, for bad, for evil, to help, to sabotage, to love, to hate, to make a difference, to hide the truth, to make the best out of life, to maintain the status quo.
I’m personally at a cross roads. I know I am capable of so much. And I want to make a difference. I want to do something in life to help, to make people happy, to make the people I love happy, to make me happy. In this blogosphere and world of social media I encounter so many people leaving the rat race and doing some AMAZING work…how do you do it? I’m scared?
