#LongandShortReviews #Wednesdaybloggingchallenge 6.3.2020

Today’s prompt, THINGS I WISH I WERE BETTER AT, could have turned into a 1000 page tome. There is so much I’m just okay at, and wish I were better. I’ve narrowed the field down to just a few for space sake – and my ego’s sake, too!

  1. Singing. In my youth and up until my 20’s I sang. I was classically trained and had a first soprano voice that even I can say was strong  and good. But since my late twenties, when I developed vocal cord polyps, my voice is much weaker and has progressively gotten worse each year until now I sound like I’ve had a night on the town smoking and drinking whiskey. A herd of hungry cats sounds better than  I do when I now attempt to reach those notes I used to reach so effortlessly.
  2. Sewing.     When my daughter was little I used to make all her Halloween costumes. On her third birthday she had a Disney themed birthday and I made her a BELLE costume ( complete yellow gown) and a Minnie Mouse costume for me.I’ve made all the window treatments in my home and I used to sew pillows as gifts. Alas, the past twenty years have seen dust gather on my sewing machine and I fear if I now attempted to sew something my lack of skills would be apparent.
  3. Keeping my mouth shut. this one is self explanatory.
  4. Not being so judgmental. Like #3, this is self explanatory and something I really need to work on so I can be better~
  5. Writing. I know I have a little talent here ( 2o books and counting doesn’t lie) but I’d really like to be much better at the craft.

That’s enough for me, because truthfully, I could go on and on.

Let’s see what some of the other authors in this challenge could improve upon, here L&SR

Until next time, peeps ~ Peg

    It sounds like you’re better at sewing than I am! 🙂

  2. I’m with Lydia…. I have sewn in the past, but never proficiently. When I was in 4H, I won 3rd place for making an apron…. of course, there were only 3 entries, so…..

    It’s horrible to have a talent and lose it. Age has a way of doing that. Oh how I wish I could still golf, but my back says NO! https://pmprescott.blogspot.com/2020/06/wc06032020.html

  4. I think it would be worse to have been good at something and lose it, honestly… I wish I were better at sewing, but I’m just too lazy to learn more. My sewing machine is actually packed away in the attic….

  5. I get it. I’d love to be able to speak up more, but also learn how to keep my mouth shut at other times. It’s a talent. The writing thing…I think we all want to be better. Go you 🙂

    I used to sew, but I haven’t done it in years. I suppose it’s mostly because I haven’t had any reason to, but I do kind of miss it.

    My answers are here.

  7. I’m with you, leaving my list on the short side so I wouldn’t start obsessing about all the things I want to do better. I feel you most when it comes to singing – I’m decent if I practice, but it used to be so easy!

    My list is here. https://thereikicafe.com/2020/06/03/things-i-wish-i-was-better-at/

  8. Singing is also not my forte. I was always a little jealous of my sister that way because she has a stellar voice. And sewing is kind of like riding a bike. It’d come back quickly. Give it a whirl! 🙂

  9. That’s so sad about your singing, Peggy.
    Am with you on the sewing. I wasn’t great at it but I used to make a few clothes but my machine is gathering dust too.
