and a few things I wouldn’t …….I ‘ve got a whole huge list of things I ‘d like to learn more about! I don’t have enough hours in the day to take in everything I’d like to know.
I have children so I’m interested in herbal healing for them and myself. I homeschool so I’m always looking for new books or ideas for curriculum. I love to draw and paint, so anything in that department catches my eye. I cut all my family’s hair so I’d really like to get a couple of books on that subject as well. I love to try new recipes, so I’ve got a few cookbooks stacked at the end of my sofa …..along with some poetry books, three or four journals of my own, a sci fi series, some non fiction medical, gardening, textbooks, etc. My husband is always asking when I’m going to move my “library” off the floor from by the lamp!
So, I guess the question isn’t what would I like to learn more about? But what am I NOT interested in?
I can think of a few.
I’m not interested in why the world is so twisted. It just always has been , and always will be.
I’m not interested in hatred, or why people feel compelled to hurt one another. That’s just another one of those things.
I’m not interested in shallow people, or why they think the world revolves around them.
I’m not interested in those who only look to the beautiful people, thinking that they somehow have more answers than those of us who are plain.
I’m not interested in learning more about being petty, or selfish, or deceitful.
I only want to be learn about those things that will brighten up my corner of the world. Make someone laugh, or think about something in a different , more positive way.
I hope that somehow, some way, anything I know, or learn , only helps me accomplish those things!
