Abe Lincoln said it well.

by Cindy R. Williams

Abraham Lincoln said, "Whatever you are, be a good one." I don't know about you, but I am trouble. I am a jack of many trades, but a master of only a few. I have my fingers in so many pots, and am spread so thin, I feel I am just spinning my wheels.

I admire people that find their calling in life early and are passionate about it from their early twenties on. Now that I think of it, maybe being a jack of many trades is much more fun. You get to try so many new things.

Is there a time in life where we must be absolutely one thing? Can we be a good one at different things at different times? I hope so because that is how I have lived my life. To me it has been more about seasons. I have found that some things remain constant through all these new things, the Gospel, my love for my family, music and story telling.

Since this is a blog and can be interactive, where do you stand on this? Are you a good one at what you have chosen to do, or do you try many things and continue to try many things and become good at them all along the way?


  1. Cindy, we have so much in common! lol. My children will tell you they keep track of time by my "seasons" as you put it. I love learning new things and when I get excited about something I want to tell everyone about it. I have to live to at least 120 so that I can experience all the stuff I still have on my list. And yet, there are also those constants that you mentioned. The Gospel is true It is the very foundation upon which I try to build my life. God and family come first. Thanks for getting me to think about this!

  2. I took some test on the Internet and discovered I am a jack of all trades master of none and that's ok.

  3. Agree with both of you! Loving life is the key right?
