Have you ever wondered what your talent was? If you had any talent to begin with?
Sometimes (many times) I thought to myself, how great life would be if I was talented in something. Something that is unique to you, that no one else had. Or even if they do, it is something special to you that cant be taken away.
If I had talent in singing, I could make song covers, I could be a star on YouTube, I could just earn money by sharing my voice, and still do something I am passionate about. I could spread my thoughts through lyrics that people could comprehend and relate to; the power of music and emotions entangled altogether. If I had the talent in design, I could design perfect little houses, creating a warm space where people reside in and build memories in with their loved ones. A place they find comfort in, a place they call home. If I had the talent in photography, I could take pretty wedding photos, go on love-escapades, get paid to travel to take beautiful shots of couples yet get to see the world in a different light. To travel with strangers yet see the beauty in the small little things you never get to experience or appreciate as a lone cash-strapped individual. If I had the talent in cooking, I would whip up wholesome meals to occupy the stomachs of people, create new dishes that have never been introduced, publish my own cookbooks and stay in the kitchen with my knife, cutleries, apron and what not.
And then I thought again. It’s not about talent actually. As much as we attribute what we lack to what we can do or become, it is the passion and determination that one possess that brings the change that one needs. So, with that thought in mind, what should I do?
If I am passionate in something but dont really have the talent in it, do I still continue to pursue that route? Would I be wasting my time? Or should I just stick to the route I’ve already embarked on and find contentment with whatever comes my way?
I believe nothing is ever too late. But then again, the problem with me is procrastination. So…. what now?
