Over at Chookooloonks, Karen has asked a really good and important question:
What are you really good at?
The context of this question was a bit more specific--what gifts do you have that help make the world a better place?
Since I have temporarily misplaced my Maggie Mason book, and since bragging on myself is such a good way tot start the new year, I thought I'd make myself a list of answers to that question here, rather than clogging up Karen's comments.
Things I Am Really Good At
- Working with animals, particularly dogs.
- Giving gifts.
- Writing something readable quickly.
- Thrift shopping.
What about you? What are you really good at? What else am I really good at? We should all build these lists and look at them often, I think. Not only to make ourselves feel better, but also to remind ourselves what we we have to share with the world.
