I'm a firm believer in learning something new--not just over the summer months when many seem to have extra time to "work on something new" -- you need to incorporate into your ongoing life. Some new items won't be a fit... but heck, it expands your knowledge base.
To turn "wishes" into realities ... it usually starts with a stretch.
This past weekend, I hopped into a canoe with a friend--she thought it was my first time and I would learn a little about canoeing. Ha--my memory muscles kicked in--I forgot what a strong paddler I was--and thoughts of vacations over 45 years ago with the kids when we took an annual river vacation--the canoe with 3 kids and rapids. Fun!
When GOD Says No
Learning something new creates fantastic freedoms. From opening doors and windows to areas, concepts and ideas that you may not have ventured into before. It allows you to transform some of your old wishes: “I wish I could play the piano; I wish I knew how to speak another language; I wish I knew how to paint; I wish I knew more about other cultures; I wish I knew how to communicate better with my kids; I wish ..., I wish ..., I wish …” into real goals.
