Let’s say “areas of specialization”.
“Areas of specialty” is passive.
It sounds like a hobby, not something serious – or valuable. It places us outside society, when our interests and intense focus on them may be exactly what society needs.
An interest is … well, an interest.
An area can be a vocation, a career, which can become a saving grace for the next door neighbor… or even the world.
Just as it’s a saving grace for us as we practice. And practice. And practice.
Enough with the dismissal. Enough.
We have more value than anyone knows.
