Share Your True Colors
by: Megan Corwin
Donít you just love the leaves changing colors in the fall? Here in the Midwest we are almost at the peak of leaf peeping season. The trees are showing their true colors Ė glorious yellows, reds, and oranges.
While they appear green during the spring and summer, those vibrant fall colors are always present, just not seen by us. As the bright green chlorophyll fades away for the winter, the autumn colored leaves are exposed, providing a beautiful gift to the landscape.
People have hidden gifts, too. What skill or talent do you have that you arenít using every day? Make a list of these skills for your own reference.
Hereís a sample from my list:
- Using humor in communications
Now, what is something you can do this week that uses one of your dormant talents? Is there a child or friend you can teach your skill? Doing one of these activities for yourself or others will energize you beyond belief.
The trees are showing their true colors right now. As you admire the treesí splendid display, challenge yourself to share your true colors.
