One of the things I enjoy the most is encouraging and motivating others. It is one of the best feelings in the world! When it comes natural to you, you never have to worry about “forcing” it or faking it. It is automatic. That is why I always get a little emotional when I am invited to speak with troubled youths who are looking for someone to guide them, encourage them and uplift them without any harsh judgements behind it.
One of the many things my parents have always stressed to me and my siblings is that everyone has a back story. Events and circumstances affect us differently and that is what I always try to keep in mind. No two people are alike which is why we are all wired differently and react differently.
My heart is full again because I am able to give more love and encouragement to those who need it the most. When I am standing in front of a crowd of students, I never get nervous because I love it when I am given opportunities such as this! We all have certain gifts, but the gifts that have the ability to transform and change lives are the gifts that matter the most.
Until next time…
