I am good at a lot of things, but nothing more so than the other. I don’t have any quirky talents. I am not a record holder of any title. The thing I am good at comes naturally to me. Others marvel at how I do it.
I’m thankful that, even in the worst circumstances, I am able to hold it all together. I take a step back and look at what needs to be done. If I don’t know how to do it, I look it up, I Google it, I figure it out.
That is my talent. I hold it all together. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but it has helped me immensely in more than one circumstance.
When my sister was in the hospital, I became everyone’s rock. I asked the questions that no one else thought to ask, I came up with lists of what needed to be done, I obtained access to my sister’s accounts and made sure that her bills were paid, and I worked hard to keep it all together – for everyone’s sake.
Although I’m great at keeping it together, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t affect me. If you ask Brian how many countless nights I cried on the way home, cried in his lap, cried going to bed….just cried in general, he would answer EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. You know what? I woke up the next morning and trudged through the challenges that the next day would bring. I did what needed to be done each day and knew that I had the evenings to let it all go.
I know it’s not that great of a talent. I can’t touch my nose with my tongue or wiggle my ears, but what I can do is to keep it together – to be the voice of reason, to be the calm in the storm.
I’m not sure how useful of a talent it is, but it works for me! What is a talent that you have that you’re thankful for?
I’m linking up with Kenzie over at Chasing Happy for the month of November.
