Overlooked, unseen or denied . . . I sometimes have an inability to what is unique or special about ourselves until we step into a particular challenge, problem or opportunity. And then it seems my gifts and talents make themselves know. Sometimes I haven't honed a particular skill . . . I know what I want to cultivate, but sometimes its hidden beneath the fear and doubt. Then I must coax those strengths out from underneath that heavy cloak of denial . . . as I settle into my own skin, a recognition emerges that I do have something to offer - sage, explorer, writer, teacher thinker, nurturer, listener, partner . . .
