I wrote this to my friend Olu to encourage him and I thought maybe someone else might need to read it…
I believe that we as beings are all divinely endowed with a certain degree
of gift of talent when we are created. It is this talent that makes us an
individual and sets us apart from others. But every once in awhile, a
being comes along that is so abundantly blessed beyond the realm of what is
normal or standard that it sets them far apart from everyone else that has ever
been made in the same vein as they. And it is this fear of seperation, of
difference that creates fear. Also, when there is someone so amazingly
endowed with talents beyond themselves, it is an amazing power. And if you
are benevolent of this power, respectful of it, do not take it for granted, you
will always be scared, fearful of what it could mean because there is a small
part of you that recognizes that wielding this power could mean that you will do
things that have never been done before you and will never be done again.
You have been abundently and divinely endowed with talent beyond even what you can imagine when you were created. I know that such a blessing can be
overwhelming and even quite scary. But do not shy away from your
blessings. Do not lay to waste what God has bestowed upon you. Wield
your power in the humble and benevolent manner that I know you to handle
everything else and I know, in my heart, that the entire world will one day be
in awe of what God has created in you. You are given power as an entity;
don’t throw it away because you are scared of what you might become if you lay
yourself open to it.
That says alot I believe. People ask me all the time exactly how I can believe so mightily in the things people set out to do with their lives no matter how strange, difficult or out of the way their process may seem. And that is why.
