Everything happens for a reason. Have you ever wondered about fate and destiny? Have you ever thought that every experience, every challenge be it success or failure, was leading you to this moment?
I’ve always loved writing and had a fascination for font even before computers. Back then it was called lettering and calligraphy. I recently saw a business woman monetise her passion for calligraphy by selling her own brand of brush pens. I thought how did she do that? Cos she had a special talent.
I didnt feel like I had any special skills or unique talents and in fact, I never really thought I was particularly special.
I just knew I loved words, writing and creating. When I am in the zone the words just fall like a waterfall. So was this my special skill or unique talent?
I also knew that I love being a contribution to others. I have this huge antenna for compassion and empathy towards a person, their story and their life. I’ve always just loved people and loved to help people. It’s innate, it’s my nature. In helping people, it wasn’t apparent at the time but I was receiving growth too.
Fast forward to 2020, and I gave my trust over to my mum who had been sharing with me since 2018 about digital marketing, conducting businesses online and learning how to be more effective. I attended an event over two days and had an epiphany.
"You are capable of more than you know".
This epiphany led me to take action, learning the digital marketing modules and applying what I learnt to mum and dad's food business and increasing the online presence of the business.
The accidental outcome while I was doing this, was my own personal development and growth. Imagine the you that was hidden inside of you was asleep waiting to awake. Imagine everything you’ve ever seen, felt, heard, experienced is exactly the perfect place for you to be right now. Imagine being more of you and making a difference in the world to the things you’re most committed to and the things you most want to impact?
So, today is the beginning of being brave. Being an authority in my own world and being courageous, putting myself out there, making a difference and being a contribution. My only job is to peel away the layers that aren’t me, to unleash more of the true me. To bring more of me to the fore. Something clicked for the first time and just like a light switch, how I occur for myself in the world is different.
Here I am world. Im sorry for hiding for so long.
And its something I know can be duplicated for you. I know its possible because I did it for me. It just takes a yes from you. And it won't just be me there supporting you along the way but a whole community.
What is possible now is carving out my own pathways to monetise my special skills and unique talents. When is now a good time to start?
Hi my name is Angela. I have loved writing since I was able to hold a pencil in my hand. I soon learnt I had a gift of connecting with my ancestors through writing before my 30th birthday.
