We all have favorite things we love doing. They may be simple tasks or hobbies that let us set aside our worries and just enjoy the present moment. Our unique talents also allow us to free ourselves from negative internal dialogue and disquieting thoughts.
For me, my woodworking shop
is my get-away-from-it-all place. With the scent of pine wood around me, I can
sketch a design for a birdhouse, or fashion and paint wooden snowmen or angels
or rocks from my flowerbed. I also like to sew. Both these talents put me in a
creative zone where I can shut out the world.
Now it’s your turn. What is your unique talent which you enjoy, which makes you happy, or which helps you to escape the humdrum of life?
And...before I forget, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
