My Monday | Play To Your Weaknesses

Hello everyone!
I hope you all had an amazing holiday weekend.
Today I wanted to talk to you about my weaknesses.
Growing up I had a tendency to focus on my flaws.
I was too timid.
Too emotional.
Too quiet.
It took me a long time to realize that what I thought were my weaknesses were actually my strengths.

I love this quote as it reminds me to play to my strengths.
Or rather, my weaknesses.
All of the things that I thought made me less than make me great.
My timidness has made me a planner.
I am often over prepared in situations which has given me the opportunity to help others.
My high emotions have given me empathy.
It is easier to understand someone when you can relate to their feelings.
My quietness has made me a good listener.
I frequently catch onto subtle things and am able to use them to my advantage.
Some might still see these as weaknesses but I have chosen to see them as strengths.
What do you consider some of your "weaknesses?"
Have they provided you with abilities you might not have otherwise?
No matter how small or insignificant those abilities may seem they make a difference to the world and those around you. 
Play to them.

All my love,
