I’ve heard the word ‘epiphany’ used in various conversations over the years. Up until now I wasn’t really sure what it meant.
This is what I interpret it as meaning: a sudden realization that has life-changing consequences.
I believe I’ve discovered my own epiphany.
It goes like this. For my entire life I’ve been struggling to discover what my gift or muse is.
For years I dabbled in drawing and art only to discover that while I am very proficient at it, I don’t possess the inner fire, or drive, to apply myself completely to art. Although I made a successful career in graphic design, drawing and even teaching drawing and Commercial Art, my heart was really never in it. It was a job.
I’ve written a number of stories-some unique and quite good but again the fire was not there.
For about a week I’ve been getting subtle hints from God as to what my gift is. From reading the Bible, conversations overheard from other Christians to messages seen on the TV-all of which mention discovering spiritual or personal gifts.
My gift or talent has been staring me in my face for decades. It’s quite simple really.
I love writing reviews. I enjoy talking about collectibles such as toys, comic books and the like. I get a big thrill when the latest review object sows up vial the mail, UPS, Fed-Ex and DHL.
There’s nothing more satisfying to me that getting a confirmation from a publisher or manufacturer when they notify me that review objects are on the way.
Here’s what it all boils down to. With God’s grace and help I hope to intensify and expand my reviews. I pray that more material shows up on my doorstep and that my review writing capability improves.
