Giftedness is not what you do or how hard you work.
It is who you are.
You think differently.
You experience life intensely.
You care about injustice.
You seek meaning.
You appreciate and strive for the exquisite.
You are painfully sensitive.
You are extremely complex.
You cherish integrity.
Your truth-telling has gotten you in trouble.
Should 98% of the population find you odd, seek the company of those who love you just the way you are.
You are not broken.
You do not need to be fixed.
You are utterly fascinating.

This is a really interesting video, six minutes well spent. Michael Wolff talks about his three “muscles”: Curiosity, Appreciation and Imagination. He says about cooking that “You never cook the same meal twice.” That goes for other things too, a beginner’s mind makes things fresh.
