They say that each and every one of us is born with a special gift, a specific genius. Sometimes, however, we don’t see it. We tend to bury our genius under low-self esteem, or focus on other people’s genius. “Oh My, she’s a genius,” you think, “so I must not be one!” Think again!
I, myself, did not realize that I was a genius until Oprah magazine deemed me a “….kooky kind of genius.” Even better, I thought, than a regular smart genius!
