My in-laws are under the mistaken impression that because I belly dance, bake bread, knit, and sew, that I do everything. Earlier this year they asked me if there was anything I didn’t do. Brett and I just kind of looked at each other. Five minutes later I remembered I don’t crochet.
But I’d like to learn to. Specifically so I can crochet little flowers and animals. So I don’t crochet, yet.
As I thought about it, and about some of the awesome things my in-laws do that I don’t, I realized I could list off a lot of things I don’t currently do, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to do them eventually. I don’t fly airplanes. I don’t produce bounteous food in our garden. I don’t make things with wood. I don’t play the piano well at all. I don’t do ballet or karate. I don’t paint. But I could. I’d just need to make time for them and I could do them. And some day I’d like to.
There are other things that I don’t do that I really have no interest in doing either. I don’t speak Chinese. I don’t do masonry work. I don’t sculpt. I don’t swim. I don’t do auto mechanic stuff. I don’t play video games. I don’t cross-stitch. I’ll probably never make time to learn to do those things either because they really don’t interest me.
I don’t need to do everything. I’m just glad I have things I enjoy doing.
What types of things do you enjoy doing now? What would you like to do eventually? What are some of the things you’ll probably never make time to do?
