WHAT AM I GOOD AT?
I always used to ask this as a kid. I have two younger brothers and two younger sisters. One of my brothers is an amazing, gifted artist and the other one is an athlete who plays many sports. My younger sister is a great singer, and my other sister can cook the best food you ever tasted.
People would always ask me, "What are you good at?" and I didn't know what to say, because I felt like it should be something different, something at which I was really accomplished.
One night when I was about 12 years old, I sat down to think about it and thought that maybe drawing was my talent. But then I felt sheepish because other people I knew were much better at it than I. Then I thought the same thing about singing: I loved to do it but didn't feel very talented.
