The gift of listening is one of the rare gifts of us humans but one of the powerful tools that uplifts the soul. Congratulations for having this gift.

My gift is health. I am healthy and I think that is so important. I would not be able to enjoy life like I do if I had anything wrong with me.

I believe my gift is tenacity and a willingness to be self-reflective in order to improve whether it be in my career as an educator or in other aspects of my life. It would be easier sometimes to just "let it ride" and do the same old, same old, but I find I enjoy life more when I keep striving.

My family is my greatest gift. Maybe there are more gifts that I have but without them, there’s no one who will guide me to use these gifts the right way.

I believe being mentally strong is a great gift. Not everybody is mentally strong.

Is that I am one of faith and belief. Ability to go on no matter what is a truly unique gift.

I believe my gift is being more understanding than most. I do have the capacity to see in other people's eyes and get a sense of their feelings. I tend to be a patience person--most of the time. I'm not sure if any of that is considered a gift, but I'm glad I have it at least.

Maybe my creativity, languages and my empathy. And by this I mean I am an empath (as new-agey as it sounds). I walk into a room and feel if there was a fight before. I meet someone and feel their mood. Sometimes I'm in a weird mood and it takes me a while to realize that it's not me, it's some mood I picked up from someone around me...takes a while to learn to shake everything that doesn't belong to you, but it also teaches you to basically walk in other people's shoes.

Latest Review: "My Ladybird Story" by Magus Tor

Post by TheSeelieCourtJester » 23 Jun 2017, 23:38

I'd like to think that my gift is empathy. I can relate to different kinds of problems other people have, even if I've never experienced them. It's where I get my listening from, as well as my kindness. If I wasn't able to empathize with people, I feel like the world would be a bit darker than I'm used to. Besides which, it's because of my empathy that I'm able to develop a passion for reading, music, and the human condition.

Post by ifeoma obike » 26 Jun 2017, 19:18

My gift is my instinct. Most of my instincts are always right and sometimes when I try to ignore it, I often end up with regrets. My instincts also gives me the ability to see beyond the ordinary. I easily sense when someone is real or fake. I 'm also gifted with faith. I always have strong faith on the outcome of things. Even when everything seems to be going wrong, my faith never dies rather it gets stronger.

My gift was given to me by my Father--a love for reading. He had a small library in our very small apartment, so I was literally surrounded by books growing up. This gift led to a second gift I have from God--writing. I have just finished writing my first book.

I have many gifts. I think I could say I've been so blessed by God that people would say I'm being spoiled. I have my beautiful family, my outstanding husband, wonderful friends, a good job, my life, and last, but not least, an excellent relationship with Jehovah God. :D :D :D

After mulling it over for a while, I guess my gift would be my ability to be disciplined. My mother and father pretty much wouldn't let me get away with laziness or giving up too soon.

Mine is my parents and my siblings. They are always there to help and support me. I also have the talent in drawing where I'm improving it into a realistic one.
