I never understood the idea of being an “ex-gifted” kid. You can’t lose your gifts, you were born with them. You can, however cut off your connection to them and slow their development. If you ever wanted to realize their full potential, you always can. It is your birth rite ❤️
If you were put in the gifted and talented(aka ‘TAG’ or ‘GATE’ programs) in grade school, you probably don’t know why or what made you different. As a kid, I sure didn’t. I highly recommend doing your research on giftedness and the different characteristics noticed in gifted students. Though we’re mostly recognized in academic settings for our intelligence and mental capabilities, there’s not much discussed about other unique talents, strengths and weaknesses. Have you noticed any other ‘strange’ skills or abilities you didn’t know you had? Has being gifted held you back any way? I’d love to hear your story. Comment below 👇🏽👇🏽
When did you first know you were gifted? For me, it was in fourth grade when I was put in the Gifted and Talented program at my elementary school. It was a point of separation between myself(and others like me), and the rest of the school population. Our small group of 10-15 kids met once a week and developed a close friendship that continued through the rest of elementary, middle and high school. Looking back, we became the group of “smart kids” in school who went on special field trips, took advanced classes, and joined academic teams. Did you find out you were gifted through school, your parents or some other way? I’d love to hear your story! Please comment below 👇🏽👇🏽
Did any one else feel like the whole “junk DNA” concept was bogus? If my DNA is the key that unlocks my potential, why on earth should I only reach 4% of what’s possible? No part of me is junk. No part of my genetic make-up is useless. But I’m not waiting on the scientists. I’m not waiting on the text books...I’m going to realize this potential myself. Are you with me?
It’s easy to play small. It’s easy to give your power away. But we see where society has gone when everyone takes the easy way out. Let’s challenge ourselves to bring about a new reality. One where everyone shines, and everyone benefits from each others’ light. But how can we get there if we don’t own our own light first? This page is going to challenge you to find your gifts. To find the gems of potential that have been buried underneath pain for way too long. We’re all gifted, if we allow ourselves to be. There are those of us who know we are gifted. And then those of us who are just discovering what that means. As I become more confident and authentic in my journey of self-empowerment and ascension, I can’t wait to share what I’ve discovered along the way. There are so many challenges out there. Let’s challenge ourselves to explore our gifts to the FULLEST potential possible. This is #thegiftedchallenge
