What Is Your Calling?

6 years ago

I watched Oprah's Final Show...tear. Tears.

 

So touching. 

 

On the final Oprah Show, Oprah spoke about everyone having a calling. She then encouraged viewers to figure out what their calling truly is, and then go about the business of doing it.

 

I've posted similar words on my blog about everybody having a gift to share with the world, and I truly believe this. 

 

What is your gift? 

The hardest part is either figuring this out, or, getting started on making it happen. For some people, both of these things are difficult. For others, it is all so simple.

 

For me, I now know what my gift is, and I've been taking baby steps to get there & own it. It is exciting. It is scary. It IS work. I know I don't have all the answers, but I refuse to waste anymore time being bound by fear.

 

What is your calling? What is your gift? 

Did you watch the show?

 

I also love what Oprah said about worthiness on her final episode. She said:

“There’s a difference between thinking you deserve to be happy and knowing that you are worthy of being happy. That never became more clear to me than the episode with Iyanla Vanzant this year…What I got was, we can all block our own blessings because we don’t feel inherently good enough, or smart enough, or pretty enough. The show has taught me that you’re worthy because you were born and you are here. Your being here, and being alive, makes you worthy. You alone are enough.” - vybeyard.com

 

So true!
