#17 What is the thing you most wish you were great at?

I'll get through all of these getting to know yourself questions one day! On to number 17!

I can't pick just one! So...talents I wish I was great at:

I wish I was really proficient at an instrument. I play the piano ok... but I wish I was really really good at it. Or the cello. Or the guitar. Or the drums!

Running. I make myself do it but I don't feel like I'm good at it. I just do it (thank you, Nike).

A sport. Again, I play a lot of sports ok, but I'm not excellent at any of them. Maybe I should've stuck with just one instead of bouncing around to a bunch of different ones and getting good at them, but not excellent (soccer, gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, tennis, swimming, diving, archery (yes, archery)). I think if I were to do it all over again I'd do dance. I feel especially sad that I never learned how to dance when I watch So You Think You Can Dance. Best show ever.

Photography - A new talent I hope to develop.

Singing. Then all of Brian's dreams would come true because I would sing with him. Ok, maybe not all his dreams - but one of them.


But, other than talents, the thing I wish I was most great at is having a good perspective of the world and people. I wish I could really see where others are coming from and accept them and help them in whatever circumstance they are in. I wish I could not make mountains out of mole hills. I wish I could have the ability to see purpose behind trials and problems and learn from them rather than letting them bring me down (like the fact that there is still no baby for us). Really, I guess it comes down to having a good attitude and seeking the best in people, in myself, and any given circumstance.
