“Look at what you’ve got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”— Proverb
Because we have a desire for something doesn’t mean we need it. We can lose interest when we cease desiring something. So we don’t have to think we need to have something because we have a desire to have it. Regarding our talents, it is better to make the best of what we already have and see how we can light up the world. We all have something to contribute to the world. We grew our talents out of our experiences that are a part of us that we can somehow use as our purpose. When we do something useful with our talents we feel a sense of satisfaction and pride. We can know and feel that we are important and we can make a dent, no matter how small.
