There are some things that I am really bad at. I have a tough time learning foreign languages; I took Spanish 1 for two years and the highest grade I received was a B-. I still can’t speak Spanish. I volunteered to help out where needed at the grade school carnival; and it turns out, they needed someone to do face painting so I agreed to draw rainbows and footballs on happy children’s faces. I was surprised how many parents took pictures of my work, not because it was so good, but because it was really, really bad. My art was so bad that rainbows and footballs were indistinguishable from one another. It was two of the longest hours in my life. If you think about it, there are some things you are bad at too and all of us try to avoid doing them.
On the other hand, there are a lot of other things that I am good at. I’m good at painting houses, fixing cars, and straightening the chairs at our campuses. I’m good at playing catch and playing hockey, and I’m also good at counseling, working with metal, and driving long distances. The truth is, I am good at a lot of things and so are you.
