I’m a wishful thinker, and I keep wishing for so many things. In fact, I yearn for things all the time. And, at any point in time, I keep yearning for something! It’s a fact.
Here’s a list of random things that I wish I’d knew how to do:
- I wish I knew how to whistle properly. I whistle, but it’s a sad excuse of a whistle, really. 🙈
- I wish I knew the butterfly stroke and the breast stroke in swim. I watch in envy as people effortlessly glide on water as I swim freestyle.
- I wish I knew to draw, this is one of my pet peeves!
- I wish I knew how to speed-read. This is something I’m working on right now, but I wouldn’t mind a 3000-5000 words per minute reading speed. 😬
- I wish I knew how to compose music. I have dabbled with this in the past, but I don’t “know” it.
- I wish I knew how to dance. Ok, we’re not talking about weird steps while no one’s watching!
- I wish I knew how to multitask. Okay, maybe that was rhetoric. I’m happy with my newfound wisdom on deep work!
I could go on and on…
To summarize, the things I wish I knew how to do are way more than the things I know how to do. And some of the things I now know how to do are the things I once wished I knew.
I think I like this ratio of things I wish I knew versus things I knew skewed, the way it is right now. It eggs me on to continue my journey as a student of life!

Bloganuary is a month-long challenge, where bloggers are challenged to write a new blog post every day, based on a daily writing prompt. You will need a WordPress.com account to get the prompts, but you can blog on any platform of your choice – OR even journal privately. Oh btw, there is no bloganuary police – so you can pick your own prompts if you wish to!
