This is the week of gift buying and giving and receiving. When all the gifts have been exchanged and the whirlwind of shredded wrapping paper and ribbons settles, take a quiet moment to contemplate this. What gifts will you bring to the new year?
There are three elements that make up your life purpose: values, motivations and gifts. The gifts are those God-given talents that differentiate you from others and fuel your passion. It might be joy, compassion, wisdom, creativity, a sense of humor, a musical ability or perhaps it’s your inclination to see the best in people and even the darkest of circumstances. What gifts will you bring to the new year that will make a difference in your world and those around you? Your gifts are needed more than ever before. Let them shine in 2009.
