The things that there just aren't enough hours in the day for. Personally, as a woman, I wish I had had the time to learn about auto mechanics. Oh, I know the basics like changing the oil, checking the tire pressure, oil level, etc. But every single time I have to take my car to a mechanic it's a minimum of $350 no matter what the problem is! I often wonder if it happens simply due to my lack of the workings of an engine or if all the things that need to be done to my care miraculously cost the same thing! lol. Another thing I wish I had the time to investigate further would be astronomy...the galaxy, stars, etc. I've always been fascinated by it but I just don't have the time! I can gaze at them with the best of them though! lol. What about you? Anything you wish you had time to learn?

That would come in so handy these days, Bhadine! The only thing is that the technology changes so fast you'd almost always have to be taking some kind of course! lol. There's a lot of stuff in that area that you can possibly learn online. Maybe you should look into it.

Levitation.......now that's a very interesting one! I have to admit I'm a bit of a skeptic about that ability but I guess anything is possible! Yes...hypnosis is truly a mind boggling thing. I have a friend who managed to quit smoking and lose weight through hypnosis. She swears by it but I really think it's a case of "mind over matter". Now surely there must be SOME time available to learn how to play the guitar. Even if it's just 30 minutes a day. We've got a saying...."Practice makes perfect." Finding and devoting just a few minutes a day to that just might give you the ability.

Well, thanks for that Frontvisions! lol. Unfortunately, it's almost a necessity for a woman these days to know at least the bare minimum about car repair. Otherwise, we just get taken by those mechanics! Flying would be so cool! I was THIS close to becoming a Navy pilot when I was younger. I was right there.....in the recruiter's office...getting ready to sign on the dotted line and I just couldn't do it. Something about having somebody tell me what to do all the time really bothered me! lol. I often wonder what my life would have been like if I had actually done it though. That's a very high aspiration you have there! lol. It's never too late to take some lessons. You might want to look into it...of course, it won't be flying those Stealth bombers but you could learn to fly a Cessna or something similar.

Hi Bavneet. I'm a firm believer that life itself is an ongoing learning experience. Taking each moment as it comes and propelling ourselves forward through the experiences that we encounter. Becoming a doctor is a noble aspiration indeed! Not everybody can see to the needs of others in that fashion. I'm a perfect example of that. I have the utmost respect for those that can indeed heal or better another's life through medicine. Go for it!
