I’ve been going in and out of a terrible fever since this morn, but am feeling better right now (9pm).
I had to skip KL Fashion Week, but forced myself through two meetings.
Right after those meetings, i bumped into two people very randomly at Fat Spoon.
One a friend, and one a stranger.
The friend and i shared an incredibly similar story today.
Except that she was on the other side of the fence,
so we both learnt from each other what it felt like being the other person.
I go to Fat Spoon all the freaking time, and don’t think i’ve seen her there, ever.
It’s like just when i needed her, she was there.
When i was outside having a smoke (i swear i’m trying to quit again in July), i overhead a guy ask a girl: “What are you hidden talents?”
And she replied, “I have none.”
I felt a surge of indignation rise within me.
Usually i’d feel like saying something, but feel shy/afraid, and decide not to.
But i’ve been trying to let go of my fear recently (how people think of me, whether i’m making the right choice) and just trust that what i feel THEN is the right thing.
So i turned around and blurted out, “Can i interject?”
And the guy said, “Please do.”
I swivelled my attention to the girl and said, “You can’t say you don’t have any hidden talents. Everyone has them. You need to be confident in yourself, fight through that fear and ask yourself, ‘what do i enjoy doing? what am i good at that already comes natural to me, or my friends and family say i do well?’ You need to sit alone and think about those questions.”
The guy then asked me, “So what are your hidden talents?”
I thought about my blog… and how i connect with people and said, “Reaching out to people.”
He aptly replied, “As you’ve obviously just shown.”
They said thanks, but really, i have them to thank for too.
Because of them, i thought to myself, “What ARE my hidden talents?”
Once i know what they are, then i can use them to lead me on how to live my life.
So far i’ve come up with: reaching out to people, inspiring people, and spreading joy.
If you think i have something else within me, feel free to tell me 😀
So a good question for you to ponder on today…
What are YOUR hidden talents?
