I want to _____ well!
February 12, 2010 | My Jottings
I think everyone wishes they could do something better than they do. Or maybe there’s something we can’t do at all that we wish we could.
I’ve heard people say they wish they could play a musical instrument. I’ve known a few people who can’t carry a tune, yearn to be able to sing beautifully. I’ll bet there are athletes who’ve wished for faster legs, stronger swings, more accurate putts.
I could easily make a list of talents or personality traits I wish I had right now: I wish I enjoyed cooking and would be more creative in the kitchen, I wish I were more organized in regard to paperwork, I wish I had followed through on my childhood organ lessons and could sit down and play the piano or organ effortlessly like my mom did, I wish I were more emotionally resilient, I would like to be able to write really well, I would love to be able to paint like a master. And so goes the list.
For our bloggy February giveaway, it’s your turn to share.
If you could choose one thing you wish you could do better, or even do at all, what would it be?
Fill in the blank: “I want to ______ well!”
And you don’t have to use only one word to fill in the blank…you could say “fly without fear, clean my house, sleep, discipline my children, exercise regularly, study the Bible, bring peace, shop smarter, hold my tongue, not burn the breakfast”….whatever you’re wishing you could do better (or do at all), type it out. If you have more than one, go right ahead and share more.
This month’s randomly chosen winner will win a really neat gift, and will be announced on Tuesday morning, February 16th.
Here’s my answer to the question:
I want to love well!
I wish I were one of those people who found it easy and natural to be a very gentle and loving person. I am so far from that.
How about you? Fill in the blank…maybe win a prize. 🙂
