****I realized when I was in bed last night that I don't think that regretting quitting the piano really refers to this first question....I guess there are a lot of things that I hate (or dislike/want to change, etc) about myself that could fit into this or any other question....but I was thinking about one that that I don't like, something that I think is very true, and that I wish I could change...
I always seem to take the easy road when things get tough.
This isn't totally true, but it is true in a lot of aspects in my life. I think in part, it is b/c that I am so tired of trying, that I just up and decide to take/do what's easy. But, I think that I am doing better at this...in other areas.
I am following a blog of a semi-friend of mine, and she is doing 30 days of truth...so that I would be able to find the information, here is the full 30 days of truth..and I will answer each question one at a time..probably not every day..but I will try every couple of days or so...with out further ado..here we go!
Day 1..Something you hate about yourself..
Well, what a good one to start off with, eh?
Hate is a pretty strong word, for sure...and there are certainly lots of different things that I don't like, or wish I could change about myself...but there is one (of many!!) thing that I will always kick myself for (or rather not) doing.
I regret that I quit playing the piano.
I know this isn't a super spiritual or emotional thing, but to me, it is something that I have always wished I had continued. You see, when I was about 5 or 6, I wanted (or mom wanted me to..not sure which) to play the piano. I think Mom was my first teacher, then my gramma. I had a couple of more teachers after Grandma, and they were fine teachers, but I still found it hard. I really just didn't enjoy it. I played it (kicking and screaming, for the most part), until I was about 13 or 14, or maybe even younger. I think I was just plain tired of it, and it was boring. I didn't have the mind for it (or so i thought), so I just quit. Mom said that I had to at least learn to play a hymn before I quit, but I think I even stopped before that. People then were telling me that I would regret stopping, and I (in my teenage wisdom) told them that I wouldn't. Sure enough, when I got into my 20's, I started regretting it. I have thought of picking it up, but I just keep forgetting about it, and basically just haven't. Most of my family can play an instrument. I sometimes feel a bit left out:)
I will blog about my recent Vancouver trip and our recent happenings this weekend.
PS..I just finished reading the entire list, and I am not sure that I will do the ENTIRE 30 days..as some of them sound just too long, and even a bit boring..but I will certainly do most of them!!
