naked

It is a dangerous thing
Stepping into your gifting
Your talent has been seen
Now what will you do with it?
You can hear the question on their lips
Suddenly you feel exposed
A lasting vulnerability
So what will you do with it?
You will feel the strong pull of safety
Its quite likely you will seek cover
Where do you typically hide?
In work
In busyness
In feelings
In depression
Can you name your hiding place?
Call it out for what it is
Then get back out there
Take a small step
Use your gift
Experience the joy of sharing
Savor it
And when that feeling of nakedness comes
Remember the giving experience
Remember how it feels
How it smells
How it looks
Clothe yourself in it
Wrap the exposure in joy
