I Am Learning

What do you wish to learn?

That is Jamie’s Wishcasting Wednesday question for today.

Well, there are soooo many things that I wish to learn… I’ve been trying to narrow it down a bit and well, that’s rather challenging. So you know what? I’m just going to make a list! :-)

Top Ten things I would like to learn:

  1. How to change a tire. I’ve (touch wood) never HAD to do this and I occasionally have this nagging fear when I head out on the highway, that I’ll end up with a flat and not have a clue how to fix it.
  2. How to take really great photos and use all the functions of a good camera.
  3. How to make bread… I’ve always been to afraid to try and I know it must be easy enough. I've actually never used yeast before.

Wait…just a dog-gone minute here...I can’t believe this but... I am actually going to abandon this list!!!!!!! ((GASP)).

What I’d really like to learn is to be more focused and self disciplined. To finish the projects I have already started. To get off the computer today and start completing some Very Important work(see my two most recent posts for details on said work).

Check out Shamsi’s post. She says a lot of what I wish I had been able to articulate. And in reading her post I started to see that I AM actually learning how to become more focused. It is a process and it may be slow and actually involve work on my part, but I AM learning to recognize my patterns of sabotage and self defeating practices and stop myself from chasing after every whim and fancy.

And it ISN"T easy! It’s easy to chase and leap and dance after every desire.

It’s hard work (on so many levels) to sit still and focus myself to complete that which I KNOW will bring me into my true, blissful self.

It’s hard work, and I’m learning that I can do it!

As Karmacoy wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

You can do it! Like you said, you're half way there.

(PS learn how to change the tire too, in the meantime. It's a b#@$^ when you get that flat trying to figure it out.)

As Karmacoy wishes for herself so I wish for her also. I need to focus also, that is a ongoing theme in my life!

PS I answered your dreamboard question in the comments.

HA! :)yes yes & yes. I must admit... though I thought it was a bore at the time when my dad dragged me to the driveway when I was 14 to show me how to rotate tires (which included taking them off and putting them back on...) in my adult life I have had to change no less than 10 tires :) it's a handy skill for sure!

Ah well, as Karmacoy wishes for herself... so too do I wish (with a huge grin) for Karmacoy!
