I feel I'm decent at contentment โ€” I get frustrated about shit for sure, but I've never been one for jealousy; I am what I am, I'll deal with that. For the most part, I'm OK with my talents, looks, clumsiness, etc. If there's some skill I'd like to have, I'll work toward it.

But damn, I wish I had the innate talent to make music. I cannot sing โ€” like, not even "Happy Birthday" โ€” and I so wish I could.


I'm hearing impaired, and I think that may be a big part of why I've always had this strong wish for something I can't have. BUT, at least I can enjoy listening to music, which wasn't always the case for me.

I was just driving back from the grocery store, cranking Nina Simone as you do, and starting thinking about it. Out of curiosity, what do you wish you could do?
