This question has been the bane of my existence. I would give anything to find something that I am not only good at but enjoy as well.
Since I was a little kid, I put hours and hours of practice into many things, a lack of improvement, only led to frustration and tears.
I would love to be able to draw, but my hand-eye coordination is horrid. I can't even trace something, I can't draw a straight line, even when I am
tracing a straight line.
I spent hundreds of hours practicing the piano as a kid. My grandmother had a natural knack for it and taught me. She would get extremely upset that
her piano students who spent less time practicing than I did would surpass me.
bigfatfurrytexan, I have to disagree with you, there is musical talent. My son had his great grandmother's gift for the piano. What took me years to
learn, he mastered within a few days of sitting down in front of a piano for the first time.
I just want to know how to discover how to discover what you are good at. People say, "what do you enjoy doing?" Well, I am still looking for the
answer to that question. I feel like I am just passing time in life, waiting for the answer.
I am not good at writing, I just killed another houseplant, I not only have sports, but I am not good at them. Never could it a ball in baseball or
skate in anything but a straight line.I spent months trying to learn photoshop, but hand-eye coordination was a problem there too. I have spent
hundreds of hours trying to learn to sew, even took classes.
To be honest, I have tears in my eyes right now, because I have this massive whole in my heart that needs to be filled by doing something I love. I
carve it with every fiber of my being, but I don't know what it is.
