I suppose the comment about a "new you" came because of the "new year". I don't really remember where I read it, in fact I think it was a combination of daily devotionals and maybe a blog. But in essence what I remember is, be the best "you". Don't try to "start over". The best me?
What this means to me is, develop the skills I have. Hone my craft. Focus on two things I'm good at, and not worry about anything else.
One of my "gifts", according to my friends, is listening. However, my husband thinks I talk too much. So maybe that one skill should be my top priority for a while, learning to listen.
What are your skills, and what do you need to work on?
And how do you know what your skills are?
I like the old me, but I do want to be better.
