I recently reviewed a book about how to develop your gifts or interests. The author's philosophy was to do a small project every single day so that you have small successes which will lead to bigger successes which may lead to new opportunities. At the very least, you'll know whether it's a gift you want to pursue or whether you might be better off redirecting your interests. I reviewed this book months ago, but I couldn't get it out of my head!
I've decided to write every day. I'm pretty determined to do that. I've found a private way which suits me and I'll see where it leads. At the very least, it's a good exercise. I'm also going to try to take a photograph every day with my 35 mm camera. I may not be as determined about that. ;) It's just that it's not always convenient to lug a camera around. But I'm going to try. I may even combine the two.
What if God has gifts for me to use and I never develop them or take a risk to see where they lead? Taking something I already love to do...and doing that thing in a small way once a day...may be the beginning of a great adventure with God! I've got my passport ready.
