The bright, clear day is followed by the deep, dark night.
From hour to hour, everything changes.

"The gifts we are born with
and those that we work to develop throughout our lives vary in form and
function. Some we find use for every day while others are only useful in
Yet many times we overlook
opportunities to share our unique gifts with others. It may be fear of
criticism that holds us back or the paralyzing weight of uncertainty.
Ultimately, we doubt that
our innate talents and practiced skills can truly add value to others’ lives.
But it is the world as a whole that benefits when we willingly share our gifts.
Whether you have been blessed with the ability to awaken beautiful emotions in
others through art or industry, or your aptitudes transmit more practical
advantages, your gifts are a part of who you are.
As you make use of those
gifts as best you can, be assured that your contribution to worldly well-being
will not be overlooked."
