talentless. have you ever wished you were something or somebody else? had something others had not in an obsessive or envious way but just curious what it would be like? i wish i could be ordinary. i long to not be tortured and drug down by an endless number of creative ideas. i wish i could ask other people how to do stuff instead of knowing how to do so much. i wish i was talentless. even if for a day. i've joked for months about making a tshirt that said talentless so people would never ask me anything. not sure if it would actually work but i think it's time for that tshirt to become a reality before the insanity of my creative mind drives me over the edge. i am now at the point where i can barely sit still to even write this post i have to be doing something every minute of every day. i've heard it's the minds way of coping with anxiety but i don't know if it's healthy just seems a bit maddening at the moment. what would you want to change about yourself if you could be something or someone different for a day?

I love this - mine might seem boring to everyone else, but so awesome to me. I wish I could be one of those people that just exist without worrying about anyone or anything else. For instance, those people that take off across a parking lot without even looking - how amazing would that be to just go through life not caring, expecting everyone else to just watch out for you? People like that must not have any stress in their lives!! I also wish I could be one of those people that doesn't have to always finish things and obsess over it being great all the time. Life would be so much easier to go home in the afternoons, leave work at work and not give it a second thought until I go back the next time. Not stay up all hours researching ways to help children memorize the books of the Bible or obsessively check email so people don't have to wait more than an hour for a response, etc. Yes, I have issues - I can admit that!! :o)

to much who is given, much is required. it's tough to be so talented. it's a form of crazy all by itself. the most talented, intelligent, creative are all a little off. but you've been chosen. most of us wish for the talent in your little finger....even for a day.

you only wish you had it because you don't. it's torturing. being a creative is something so strange it's hard to even describe how the mind works so to those who think they might want even a little talent like what I've got for a day your dead wrong you don't want this crap.
