Default Did You Ever?

Did you ever want to do something but never did it? I always wanted to learn how to play the piano. As a kid I begged my Mother all the time for lessons. I was fascinated with piano music. I was always told we did not have the space for a piano. So I never got my lessons. A few years ago I broke the middle finger on my right hand. It will no longer bend. It would be useless for playing piano now. Oh well......It does have it's uses.

I always wanted to learn how to fly. At first, I didn't have the money. Then I didn't have the time (work). Now I have both but could never pass the physical.

What a shame.... becoming a private pilot and owning my own plane was on my bucket list 7 years ago and I fufilled both and love to fly.

Alot of work and study to become a part of the 1% of population that can claim this accomplishment ! Unless you have a serious physical limitation, most people could pass the medical exam w/out problems.

I think people should try to accomplish everything they want to do, provided it is physically & financially possible..in fact even if it isn't!! My wife is a great one for saying we will do that later (in life), I try to explain that we are 62 now & who knows how much time there is in the "later" she refers to. There are many things I wish I had done but didn't...usually relationship wise...what if...I wonder...
No bloody good having "I wish I had...." on your gravestone, "I'm glad I did" sounds better!!

I always wanted to try ballet/tumbling. alas, it never happened. I tried learning how to do a back handspringin college......apparently my shoulders don't bend the right way to do it successfully...oh well, I did finally get to take up ice skating in high school. Still loving it


I almost forgot: I also always wanted to sing. I sing karaoke, although I doubt I'll ever get much further in my venture, it is fun and my singing has improved significantly as a result
