Most people think of the gifted as those who cruise through school, skirting along at the top of their classes, hardly putting in any effort yet still succeeding.  But there's another group of gifted individuals who get lost in the crowd, or even fail in school, or in life, completely. …

I've realized that all the recognitions and achievements in the world don't bring satisfaction if we haven't done our absolute best to achieve them. 'Flying by the seat of one's pants' can get us by in the world, but inside we still remain empty if we haven't actually been challenged in the way we need or hope.

So how to we reach the top? The top for us? By being brave enough to stand alone when necessary, without acceptance from everyone else, in order to follow that voice inside that says, "Go for it!"

What is it that you truly love, Annemarie? When you were young, what did you enjoy, or what do you remember that made you truly happy? Sometimes the secret to our happiness today comes from the things we loved before we 'learned' that the other stuff of life was 'more important'. And sometimes the secret lies in noticing what moves us today, what makes us feel fully alive, and what brings out that spark of passion again.
You are never too old and it is never too late to be, do or have something more. As soon as you find, or should I say rediscover, the things you really love, you've already taken the first step toward having them.

It makes perfect sense!!! I feel like I'm 3,6 and 10.

("Group 11 – We think we know a whole lot more than everyone else and tend to blame our failures on others’ ‘incompetencies’. We’re right, they’re wrong." – Hahaha … I think that is just how it is for the gifted. We are more competent than others and should be surrounded with our true peers or we will never achieve our potential.

Lyca I went through the exact same thing in school and then later in college!! Libraries are like my second home also and let's not forget the internet. As you, I can get lost in almost ANYTHING … people around me have never understood it. I gave up trying to explain myself .. it's too nerve-racking. Only my boyfriend <3 understands me at a satisfactory level.
