I Am Gifted! – We All Become Gifted By Doing 1 Thing – Accepting That We Are – 50+ Tips On Being Gifted

This is another one of those deep, heartfelt posts.  I hope that you take the time to review it in its entirety.  This is real talk.  If it is not inviting to you, that is fine too.  It is about being gifted.  I Am.  You can be too, by doing one thing.  The gift has already been given to you by The Most High.  Accepting it, and God’s desire for your use of this gift transforms you from merely being a gift recipient into being Gifted.  I Am Gifted.


I’m gifted, I can now say! 

How arrogant, narcissistic, and egotistical you may first say.  But I believe that we all have a spiritual gift.  God has endowed us all with a spiritual gift that cannot be taken away.  It can’t be reversed.  It’s in us all.  It’s like death.   Death is certain.  There’s nothing that can reverse it.  Our endowed gift from God in within us.  Whether we accept it or not, it is still in us.


I know that I’m gifted.  My confidence dwells in my willingness to accept the gift that God has given me.  Proclaiming this is not based on any superior intentions.   Many of us have gifts.  We all have gifts that God has given us all.  It is our dharma, a purpose, a mission.  What makes us gifted, as opposed to just having a gift, is our willingness to acknowledge and accept that gift.

I will share with you some ways that led me to conclude that I am gifted, beyond just accepting god’s will,  whatever it is for me. Continue reading “I Am Gifted! – We All Become Gifted By Doing 1 Thing – Accepting That We Are – 50+ Tips On Being Gifted”

7 Days 7+ Quotes – Integrity – A Value We Impose On Ourselves – It Says Everything About Who We Are – 9 Tips to Help You Strengthen Your Integrity

“Lying lips [are] abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly [are] his delight.” – Proverbs 12:22

Integrity is one of my most valuable virtues.

Now that I am well on my spiritual journey, maintaining Integrity has become of greater importance in every choice that I make or action I take.

The reason I give Integrity such importance has to do partly with my age and experience.  And, having had many people in my life who were not “of their word”.  …Friends, Family, and Colleagues.

The choices and challenges that I face today are generally not new ones. As they say, ‘This is not my first rodeo’. It seems that most of the choices I face today are ones in which I am already well-experienced. On most challenges to my Integrity, I have made incorrect choices in the past, and am well aware of the consequences of not being true. So, I ensure that I am, no matter what the truth may bear.

It may not be easy for others to make the correct choices, and to be regarded as men or women of their my word.  …Not I!

Aging has also caused me to focus more on a legacy. My legacy is important to me. The reason it is of such importance is that when God comes for me, I want to be able to leave a message, purpose, and inspiration behind for others.

I am very serious about leaving a legacy. My tombstone is already engraved with: ‘His mission on Earth is complete’.

I simply do not see my life today as exclusively dedicated to myself. I do for others in daily deeds, but also for my best virtues to be reflected upon and be useful to others.

My poetry, stories, social media content, and blog posts reflect the legacy that I am creating. I practice what I preach, believe the things I write, eat the foods I recommend, and follow the health regimens that I write about.

‘That Guy’ Is Forever Gone

Forever Gone (Excerpt)

By Kevy Michaels

I can’t describe my feelings for you
I know that those feelings are strong

I can’t describe where I am right now
But where I was…
I will never return

…Feeling my soul vividly right now
…Been cleansed and transformed

The places where I tried to fit in
…Just don’t appeal to me anymore

I will forever have fond memories of you
Even of the man that I once was

But ‘that guy’ who escorted you
On a part of your journey

Is now
The man who’s

… Forever Gone
