One of my favorite things about the internet is YouTube. (Have you noticed?!) At different times I will check out a favorite song. Maybe it’s a song from the 80’s or 90’s as I reminisce about those high school and college days, a sentimental/NoStaLgiC song, a favorite love song, an inspirational song, a song to pump me up, an oldie, or a new hit. When it comes to music there is something for everyone. It’s for that reason I have found a new GiFt to give my friends, family, and loved ones: a music video via an email.
Are you wanting to do something special for someone, but don’t know what? Why not send an email with a HeArTfeLt message and a YouTube link to a song that is significant to your relationship? Maybe it’s a funny song that you enjoyed with a high school classmate or a love song that means something special between you and your spouse. Whatever you may want to say, most likely there is a SoNg that says it perfectly.
Need ideas? Here’s one to get you started. I hope you enjoy!!
I went through a time in my life where I was fRusTrAteD in almost every aspect of my life. Things just didn’t seem to be going well for me. I felt mediocre, or worse, like a failure. That is when I remembered a couple of compliments I had been given years earlier by two separate individuals. They both said the same thing, “Robynn is the NiCeSt person I know.” I remember being floored that two people who didn’t even know each other and didn’t live in the same city said the same exact thing.
My point in sharing that story is not to say I’m the nicest person around because it turns out that I know fRiEndLier aNd NicEr people than I am and I try to emulate these people. Instead my purpose in sharing this story is to show how these people had seen my gifting, my tAleNt which is being fRieNdLy and enCouRagiNg to others. That is my StrEngTh.
When I thought back to these comments the LigHtBuLb went off!! I wasn’t operating in my GIFT, instead I was trying to be someone else. I was trying to emulate people who have strengths in the areas of my weaknesses and when I did I failed.
What gifts and talents do others see in you? Maybe it’s not even something that you have ever considered being a gift or a talent. Maybe you have blown off CoMpliMenTs thinking that people are “just saying that”, “don’t really mean it”, or “are just trying to be nice” . It may be time to take their compliments to heart. Could it be that they are pointing you to your “SwEeT sPoT” without you even knowing it?
