So, going into the silence this week has led to reflecting.

I’ve spent a long time trying out different things; jobs; partners; places to live; being employed; having a business; all sorts in an attempt to be “fulfilled” or at peace. So many ways to describe the state I was looking for. I’ve avoided using “happy” because most of the time I was happy. That’s not it.

I had a chap I worked with a few years ago and he would say “It’s not that I’m dis-gruntled. It’s that I’m not particularly gruntled.” It strikes me as a parallel with the physical world. Healthy is not the absence of disease.

We all deserve to be gruntled.

It strikes me that we all have the responsibility to uncover our genius because the World needs us to do that. Each of us has an unique contribution to move the World forward and if we don’t, not only are we stuck but the World is stuck too.

So, we are not being self-centred by uncovering our genius.

We are genuinely serving everybody else.

And what is the alternative?

If we don’t work to let go of the cement, then we’ll continue to feel low energy, unhappy, that something is missing.

And everybody else misses out.

To quote Howard Thurman:

“Don’t ask what the World needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the World needs is people who have come alive”

  • Very true, Allan. I have never thought of it that way, but I love the way you say it. Thanks!

  • I giggled when I read, “It’s not that I’m dis-gruntled. It’s that I’m not particularly gruntled.” Your friend has an excellent point and I appreciate his word choice because it brings the fun back into discovering our natural gifts. We all deserve to be gruntled 🙂
