Wouldn’t life be grand if we all worked diligently to fulfill out dreams instead of just dreaming? Admittedly, I’ve been idle. Much of my time has been consumed with finishing this book before the end of 2014 so I haven’t done much else besides write.
But there are two things that keep nagging at me. I can’t really explain why I keep thinking about these two things. Maybe it’s because 2015 is right around the corner, or maybe it’s because my 40th birthday is creeping closer and closer. Whatever the reason, I’ve decided to share them with you. Here are the things I want to do:
1) Learn how to sew. I took home economics in middle school and we made pillows. I picked this cute navy blue pattern and successfully sewed my fabric together and stuffed it with cotton. That is the extent of my sewing experience. Lately, I’ve become obsessed with Mimi G Style. She’s a fashion blogger who gives online sewing tutorials. She is all kinds of fabulous and is a master at making clothes. I’ve looked into sewing classes at my local fabric store and just need to push my fear aside and sign up.
2) Take piano lessons. My daughter is a flautist and my son just started taking trumpet lessons. So each night, I’m listening to both of them practice their instruments and talk excitedly about learning new music. This has reignited my interest in learning to play the piano. Many years ago, my cousin taught me how to play a song on the piano. And any time I get in front of a piano, I play that song with joy. I wish I were more skilled at playing music.
So that’s it. Those are the two things that have been nagging at me. Is there anything that you want to learn to do, accomplish or complete? Let me know in the comments.Pin It
