What I know for sure :: I'm not any more special than anyone else. In fact, I'm probably LESS talented than most. We ALL have gifts and talents that are unique to US.
Truth is, it's taken me awhile to embrace this, but I think God has given me the gift of being comfortable on stage and sharing my heart, hustle, and experiences.. For me, it's not about the spotlight. It's just that being comfortable on a stage sort of runs in my family, in my blood. My brother can speak with passion and authenticity to thousands, my Dad was an officer in the Navy.
I haven't always been comfortable with this 'gift' because I didn't want people to interpret it as *attention-hogging* or *spotlight-wanting*.
But that's not true, that's not who I am and I can't control what other people think anyway. God gave me this strength for a reason. Shame on me if I don't use it to help others, right?
I am a teacher at heart and love being on a stage. It's my passion zone. I'm also smart enough to surround myself with people who have amazing gifts and who can help me fill in my gaps - and I have PLENTY of gaps! :) That's the beauty of being on a TEAM.
So...yes, you CAN "do what I do"...just in YOUR own way...and how cool is that?
