Abilities are the basic things people can perform.  They take no special talents but are something we learn to do.  An example would be a non-arthritic hand can pick up a pencil and write.  Children learn to tie their shoes.  The author of this blog can draw a stick figure.

The next time you say, “I can’t do ANYTHING”, remember the root word of abilities – it is ABLE.  You are able to do many, many things.  Be thankful for the things you are able to do instead of complaining about the things you can’t do.

One more thing:  you are able to read this blog, and I appreciate you!  Have a very wonderful day.


Next up:  What are talents?

I am an optimistic, positive person who is a seven year cancer survivor. Since that time I have learned that getting a cancer diagnosis does not always mean an automatic death sentence. I like to share my hope with others and continue to encourage them - no matter who they are or what they need encouragement for. I write poems, prayers, articles, and stories. Recently the premiere issue of my online magazine, launched. Thank you for visiting!
