Owning Your Gift

When I was younger, I used to hate the fact that I had such a strong desire to work in TV and film. I wanted to like something “safer”, more stable, more lucrative. I tried to do other things. I prayed it away. I wished the desire away.

And then a funny thing happened. I got a job in the industry. And I was good. Really good. Another funny thing happened. When I did it, I felt alive. I enjoyed it. Most of the time, I didn’t mind the long hour 15-18 hour days – most of the time, lol. When I started doing what was in my heart to do, and really owning my gift, I started soaring. I worked with people I never could have dreamed of working with. And I loved what I did.

Don’t pick what you do, the dream you pursue, based on the money other people say you can make, based on what other people say. Move forward with whatever God has placed in your heart to do. Own your gift.
