Am at a point in my life I can’t even state my talents. Its like I don’t know what am good at. Actually I’ve never been able to discover. Its easy for people to tell you find what you love, what you passionate about and you do best, but what if you love almost everything and you believe you do them great. For instance I love to cook and I know how to cook, I love to sing and I know am a singer though am a bit shy 🙂 I am so in love with theatre and several people claim am a drama queen and that I’d make a great actress therefore I want to make it big out there in the City of Angels. So in all of these three I still have no idea what my talent is or talents are. Now, my question is, is it possible for a person to have more than one talent? Am guessing yeah!
I have been brought up in a setup where my talents or abilities were not nurtured when I was a kid. Not that I blame my parents/guardians they were more of the oldies but technically I am complaining here in this article. I think if they would have, I would be certain what my talent/talents is/are. But then again as I said, am just complaining in this article. They cared more about what grades you attained in school at the end of the term or year, not that they paid much attention to the co-curricular activities. However, mum was the sporty type so she would wonder what sport you played sadly I was and I still am an anti-sport. The fact of getting all sweaty and exhausted was not my specialty since the sweating from academics was already enough.
Being a kid brought up in this day and era (21st century) is advantageous because these kids get to give out their opinions to their beloved parents with no fear of rubbing their faces or their behind the next minute (that’s called being open). Parents nowadays discover what their kids love or are practicing to do at a younger age hence leading them to value and nurture their children’s abilities. This in turn creates an atmosphere of belief around the child where he/she is confident in what he/she does best. Am guessing this is why there are many organizations/institutions in Kenya that are advising parents/guardians to take this step towards their children. Its not always about books!!!
As I conclude, I can tell y’all its not that am sad/mad but I can say I know a lot of stuff. I think am better off, at least I can be a chef, musician and an actress at the same damn time. A ” Jack of all Trades!” Oh! And did I forget to mention I love doing humanitarian work, though am not sure if it counts. All in all, at the end of the day, we all have something/somethings we’re deeply passionate about and its just us to know what they are and share it with the world emitting a positive energy to the people around you. It doesn’t hurt to make the World a Better Place!!
