I am such a huge fan of Her Agenda, a career and goal-oriented website for millennial women. The site regularly features awesome girl bosses who have made names for themselves in entertainment, business, writing, etc.
So, one week, I came across an interview with Charreah K. Jackson, the creator of BossBride.com and relationships editor for Essence magazine, and she dropped some serious gems! One of which is the quote above! “It’s irresponsible to have a gift and not fully step into it.“
That resonated so deeply with me, especially as I work on this new site. For those of us have found our gifts, we owe it to ourselves to truly tap into whatever those gifts are and find a way to share it with others. For some, it may be the gift of comedy. You can always manage to put a smile on people’s faces, no matter what they’re going through. For others, it may be the gift of hospitality. You are a bright soul that loves making people feel welcome no matter where you are…on the job, at church, at events. For me, it’s writing. I use it to inform and entertain, and now, with Imperfectly B, to uplift others.
Regardless of what your unique gift is, it’s something that you have a duty to truly give your all in, no matter what. Find a way to use your gift not only for yourself, but for others around you!
