  5. Writing (and maybe blogging)

Things I am bad at

  1. Directions – I get lost in my driveway
  2. Singing
  3. Math
  4. Making and maintaining friendships
  5. Being normal (this might be a good thing, but I am decidedly bad at this)

Things I wished I was good at

  1. Writing popular music
  2. Being a good student in high school
  3. Programming
  4. Making and maintaining friendships
  5. Being normal (the grass is always greener)

We are all good at things and bad at other things. Some things can not be improved with practice and others cannot. Some things are in the past. I was listening to a This American Life podcast about a guy who lived his whole life in regret of a single basketball game where he played poorly. His life might have gone in a very different direction if he had played well.

Regret sucks. For me, it helps to reflect and think of the good things in your life and the bad. Be objective and thoughtful. Make a quick list for yourself. How does it make you feel?

Hopefully, it makes you feel centered. Have a great day. πŸ™‚
