It’s amazing to me how every time I pick up Eleanor Roosevelt’s Autobiography something miraculous jumps off the page… “About the only value the story of my life may have is to show that one can, even without any particular gifts, overcome obstacles that seem insurmountable if one is willing to face the fact that they must be overcome; that in spite of timidity and fear, in spite of a lack of special talents, one can find a way to live widely and fully.”
We never know why we are made a certain way. Who’s to say one quality you consider a hindrance isn’t the key to your path through. You never know how the gifts you have been given will be received and to what affect. All you can do is give your gifts freely and openly and when a challenge comes up, face it with grace, showing up with your full self engaged and present.
