I want to be really good at something: to do something, and for someone to tell me that I do that thing really well. And I guess “good” isn't really the right word - I want to actually excel at something.
It would feel so nice to have a special talent, skill, or ability that is impressive or noteworthy. To have a teacher, acquaintance, random person, or boss tell me that I “astound” them in some way would be really neat. I have yet to experience that occurrence, but it sure would be nice.
Now don’t get me wrong, I think I’m smart. I’m a pretty decent mom, and I also realize that I am a very organized person. But really I’m looking for more than that: something I do extremely well.
For example, I recently told a woman I don’t know well that her artwork is amazing and that she should seriously consider selling it. I have several friends who are exceptional vocal artists. My husband is amazingly creative and makes awesome videos, fliers, and graphics. My sister is a wonderful “people person” and everyone seems to like her. My mother is great at SO many things and is very smart. She is a great leader and looked up to by many. My father is also respected by many and has an “air of optimism” that is inspiring.
I often wonder: what is my thing? What particular attribute do I have that is special? Aside from being unique and people thinking that I am weird and unusual. What is my noteworthy talent, skill, or ability?
Maybe I will find it someday or maybe I have already “found it” but just don’t realize it. I don’t know. It would just be nice for some “outsider” to notice something “special” about me. That would be super neat.
