Your Gifts


How will you use your gifts?
What choices will you make?
Will inertia be your guide, or will you follow your passions?
Will you follow dogma, or will you be original?
Will you choose a life of ease, or a life of service and adventure?
Will you wilt under criticism, or will you follow your convictions?
Will you bluff it out when you’re wrong, or will you apologize?
Will you guard your heart against rejection,
or will you act when you fall in love?
Will you play it safe, or will you be a little bit swashbuckling?
When it’s tough, will you give up, or will you be relentless?
Will you be a cynic, or will you be a builder?
Will you be clever at the expense of others, or will you be kind?

Thank you for this post! I can say that for the most part I have followed my passions (although sometimes I've gotten lost along the way.) I've been of service, followed my convictions, apologized and fallen in love in my own swashbuckling, relentless and kind way! I do have guard against being a cynic though.
