    Language (reading, writing and comprehension). My level may not be at its highest, but the level I do have, in some ways, are a life saver, allows me to be autonomous and I am able to get more done. I can even be creative, which adds to the enjoyment of it, adding to its repertoire and it can kill, save time or, just plainly, dispell boredom. Yeah, language!

    On the occasions when I come late to these questions I learn so much from the replies of others. Reading the question, my immediate response was that for today at least, it feels like I have no skills or at least nothing that usefully contributes. And of course, as I read the skills identified by you all, I began remembering that I have that skill, or that one, and even that one. Thank you for helping me to remember them 😊

    And the skill I am most grateful for? The ability to self-reflect, to learn and to grow 🙏

    Mine or others? Haha. I’ve really recommend if you are looking for an awesome series to watch PBS Nova series called Planets. Super amazing and blown away by that series so if you want to be in awe that is a great series.

    In myself maybe the capacity to keep finding the non-serious edge in life, the enjoyment possible and try to ride it in a way along with being honest. I try to keep things somewhat inane at times which others find negative perhaps but also helps me to have more ease. But I’m also very honest or try to be. I’m kind of at the extremes of being very honest yet also extremely inane, it sort of balances hopefully.

    I have a variety of technical skills. The problem with this is that they always need upgrading but i guess one thing builds upon another.

    My greatest skills are probably my intellectual abilities. I am grateful for my abilities to think through ideas logically and to wonder about deep questions, growing in wisdom at each moment in my life.

    Empathy for others along with action to help even in very small ways like a smile or holding a hand or giving food or saving a spider. Which I am fearful of some of the ones I have saved. They deserve to live. Usually I can lift up suffering just being sensitive to what comes my way.

    Listening to others, a good attitude, the gift of equanimity most times, a sense of humor. I think I have learnt through the years if I let myself go through my emotions-to be sad or angry-and then move on, that ability has been a real gift to me and others. And looking for the good in people rather than focusing on the negative has been helpful as well, especially if. it is someone who is unhappy and angry with the world.

    Listening without interruption. Affirming others. Writing. Remembering song lyrics, or bits of them, and singing a phrase or two in response to a situation. Kindness and compassion. These seem more like gifts, not sure if they are skills.

    I am grateful for my enthusiasm and diligence. I try to approach many of the obstacles that I see in life with determination and enthusiasm. I keep learning over and over again about the things that I’m afraid of and most of the time I’m able to deal with them much better than I thought! Determination and resilience keep me going!

    Withholding critical or harsh comments to others. It makes us both feel bad. Even when warranted, I try to be kind.

    I’m grateful to have an inquisitive mind and like to problem solve, as in DIY projects, fixing things at home, taking charge of my own health without meds, gardening, cooking and keeping up with tech stuff in computers and other devices. Figuring out how I can do something myself brings me a lot of satisfaction.

      Thank you for being a teacher and giving back! helping students gain confidence in reading is a huge asset! I have dyslexia and back in the day they didn’t know anything about that in the teachers that worked with me were never patient. And I appreciate so much today when people give their energy and enthusiasm for teaching children how to read and write. So thank you very much for your service!

    An abiding love for my Creator and Creation: understanding rather than judgment; patience with myself and others; kindness in thoughts, words, and deeds; seeing that a sick tree needs as much prayer as a human; knowing that love drives out fear. 💜🌈

    The ability to “just keep swimming.” Resiliency has been a big part of my practice for many years now.

    I am also grateful to be such a good cook. Being the oldest of four in a latchkey home, having dinner ready by the time our parents got home was one of my chores. Mom would leave a list of what to cook, but I got bored with the same ol’ same ol’, and started experimenting. Those days of trial and error paid off well!

    I am most grateful for the ability to hear, see, feel, and love. We might not think of these as skills per se, but we’ve all met people over time who either lost or never had these abilities and the consequences of such a loss.
