I love to sing and that’s great, I love to write, also great, love to perform artistically when it comes to poetry, also great, love to teach, coach, minister also great, but what is the core of my strength?  Where should I put the focus?  This is important.  I had one of my songs professionally produced, “I Won’t Apologize for This” including the vocals, looked at which pieces got the most views etc… on youtube and asked for feedback, honest back from those who know me.   I realized that my strength is in speaking up, speaking out what the Spirit, Holy Spirit guides me to speak and write, so I can teach etc…, but the singing, music production, best leave that to someone else.  I best focus on the writing part, maybe even doing seminars.  I still sing when I send the samples to the producers and vocalist who produce the tracks for me, so they can hear the baseline melody I want to for the piece.  When I am at Mass, I sing my little heart out, in tune, out of tune who cares.  Objectively seeing one’s gifts and being able to let go of stuff, and saying “Ok Lord, leaving that so someone else and I will do this other thing, leave that to others to do”, not a bad thing.  Know your core strengths and work with that.
