Find your strength
Each and every one of us really need to feel a sense of purpose and competence in the things we do. Some of us have not discovered our strength in life yet. And we have allowed people to see us from the angle of our weaknesses and also judge us by the things we cannot do. All because we never gave room for the ones we can. Quite frankly, I am not the very physical type. I am just slim and healthy.😀 Although am trying my best. I do push ups in morning (when I think I have the strength 😃), I don't jog much (I feel jogging are for people that want to lose weight and obviously, I don't have any weight to lose😁), also I sincerely have plans for a gym class soon. And maybe because of my physical nature, I find it difficult doing strenuous jobs, lifting heavy loads etc. Unfortunately for them, I grew up in a society where physicality is highly appreciated. When you can't do those physical jobs, you'll be regarded as lazy. Even at home, I find it difficult doing most chores, because those things weren't in synchronization with my kind of person. So I looked very lazy. And I got criticized severally because of it.😕 But when it comes to stuff like computer programming😎, graphics, playing musical instruments and other stuffs that has to do with the mind, am good there. I can comfortably stay awake all night doing stuffs like this. This was my strength. And rather than trying to fit in where physicality was highly involved, I had to focus on where I won't be stressing my muscles much.😚 And gradually, people started according respect to me, because they couldn't do the things I do. Some will ask me, how I am able to stay long hours programming and writing codes that weren't readable to a normal person. And I ask them (in my mind😉), how they are able to do those physical jobs with ease. Now, I want take a close look into your life. Maybe you are not lazy, maybe you are not weak, maybe you are not incompetence. Maybe all you just need is to find your strength. I have a saying, "Nature did not cheat on me, She just gave me a lot of things to work on😒". Maybe this applies to you as well. Nature did not cheat on you. You just have to find your strength and do some work. You have to sincerely accept yourself the way you are. That's true (self) love. Appreciate your personality, it's not easy being you. Find your strength and focus more on it. Become competent there, seek God and I assure you that the world will look for you. Someone said, "There's no defense against excellence that meets with a pressing public need." Be above average, strive for excellence. A time will come when your efforts will pay off. Also note that if there are things you have to learn or be able to do to survive life, learn them and do them. Though am not the physical type, I still do important physical jobs when the need arises. I still stretch and challenge myself, because that's what life is all about. But what is more important and valuable to me is that I have actually found my strength and I'll keep improving on it. I hope this makes sense to you. Ensure you find your strength and more importantly, find yourself! YOU ARE ABOVE AVERAGE By Johnson Crystal #AboveAverage #Hopefulme
