Beauty Lies Within and Utilize Your Talents

True beauty lies within us, I love this quote and every woman needs to feel good about herself.  Having good Self-Esteem is important in our life!

Being a woman we need to be encouraged and encourage each other.  Sometimes life and its challenges can really hit us and bring us down but we are not to allow circumstances to influence who we are as a person. 

I believe that we all have talents and need to use them.  Each one of us have talents within us and need to express and utilize them.  If we are unemployed then we have more time on our hands.  We need to find out what our niche is and exercise it.  The things sometimes that hold us back is ourself!  Fear of failure and uncertainty.  I know for myself that I used to battle with fear, the "what ifs"  We can be  our own worst enemy at times.
  I guess I have a talent I didn't know I had was baking breads.  My mother used to make banana bread, carrot cake, etc.  I decided to try and make banana bread and it turned out delicious!

 I took a loaf to my Pastor and he just loved it!  He loved it so much that he didn't want to share it, haha.  If I never tried making the bread I would have not known that I had a talent in this area.  Not only that but I got to share it with people which was awesome!
  In life I want to be a blessing to others. This is just an example of my life.  I am learning that sometimes it is the little things in life that can mean a lot.

A Talent is a natural endowment of a person. It is an ability or natural capacity that we have, which may range from our creativity to our athletic abilities. We all have them, but we are not always so good at identifying what they are. Sometimes they can be right in front of us, and we miss them.

What talents do you have?  Do you utilize them or are they sitting dormant? 
  Who knows, your talent could turn into a business which you can profit from and enjoy what you do for a business.
  These are just thoughts to ponder!

Don't waste your talents but use them.  Why not start today!


  1. Enjoyed your post today and found it very encouraging. You are right, sometimes our insecurities keep us from using our talents, but we need to see past them and we might be surprised just how talented we really are and how those talents can be used to bless others. God Bless!!!

    1. Glad you enjoyed the post and we all need encouragement. I am in the stages of using my talents. You have talents that need to be shared as well!
