Signs of talent can be revealed in the most interesting ways.

I have been minorly obsessed with peanut butter for quite some time now. And recently, it has been on my mind.

Peanut butter and apples, peanut butter and waffles, peanut butter and carrots, peanut butter and oatmeal, peanut butter and anything chocolate….

I even fleshed out some of my obsessiveness over at our family blog and posted a “how to stir a jar of peanut butter” video. It was kind of ridiculous, absolutely fun, and it got me thinking about strange talents.

The things we do every day, that we do naturally, without trying—even if SLIGHTLY bizarre, like coming up with a method of stirring peanut butter!—might actually be signs and hints of unique talent. We tend to write off a lot of life as “personality quirks” or personal idiosyncrasies. But often, these quirks can be hints of our own talent.
