Replenish Your Energy Reserves by Using Your Gifts

Replenish Your Energy Reserves by Using Your Gifts

"We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained." - Marie Curie​

Are you listening to your heart? Are you listening to that little voice inside of you dying to get your attention? Probably not. There is a voice inside of you letting you know that you have more to gift this world than what you are giving now. You have gifts that you aren't even paying attention to because your fear of the unknown is greater than your desire to discover those gifts in you.

So, I'm talking about gifts but what the heck do I mean by that? I am referring to the parts of you that are naturally a part of you. The parts of you that connect you with your core and make you feel centered without much effort. The gifts that you came into this world with but are probably constantly denying.

For example, I'm a natural coach. I work as an instructional coach during the day and as an empowerment coach through Choose You Love. I love coaching; it makes me so happy that I leave every coaching session glowing. I'm sharing this part of my story to let you in on my truth. I fought my gifts for a long time. I mean I received three masters looking for my gifts, not realizing that they were in me the entire time. Now, I'm paying back student loans to remind me of the time I lost.

What I didn't want to realize along the way was that I am a natural problem solver. I can listen to a person's concerns, and I automatically have at least five ways to solve it. I listen extremely well, and I ask excellent questions based on what I hear from those who share their stories with me. These are all natural qualities of a coach, but I fought these gifts with me for a very long time.

  • I was scared that I wouldn't be able to make a living using these gifts.
  • I was scared people wouldn't take me seriously.
  • I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to keep up with these gifts in the long run.

What I finally realized is that when I embraced these gifts in myself, everything would naturally fall into place. I would do my "work" with more ease and a lot more joy.

The reality for you is probably this:

1. You are pulled in a million directions.

2. You are tired. You are more tired than you humanly thought possible.

3. You are mental, physically and emotionally drained.

Here is what I've come to know through much studying, self-discovery, and talking to other moms:

The reason the exhausted reality above resonates with you is that you haven't been using your gifts. You are stressed and drained because you are working hard but not happily. You are pulling on your small reserves of energy which you never replenish.

Today, I invite you to do the following things:

1. Think back and jot down the times when you were doing something for which you have a natural gift.

  • You will know that this is true because you get the most joy out of doing them and the time just seems to fly by.

2. Find ways to start incorporating your gifts into your everyday life.

  • What are the ways you can share your gift with others? How can you use this gift to improve your life?

I would love to hear what you discovered and plan to do with your gifts. Leave a comment below or in our Facebook Group!
