Today’s Prompt:

What is something you wish you knew how to do? Sorry, I’m a little late on this!

My Answer:

I wish I could save lives as our healthcare heroes do. I am certified in First Aid, and I do believe it important to have a basic understanding of how bodies work. Still, whenever I go to the doctor or the hospital, I am one of those patients that ask a lot of questions, as long as I’m feeling okay. I’m curious about what they are doing or using and why. Plus, I read science articles about developments in medicine.

On the other hand, there are things about taking care of sick people I know I can’t handle and I respect anyone who can handle it.

So, that’s my answer. What do you think? Is there something you wish you knew how to do?

  1. What a tough question. There’s so many things I wish I knew how to do. The thing that’s top of mind is that I wish I were more handy with building or fixing things. I’m terrible at that stuff and usually throw money at the problem. I imagine it would be so rewarding to learn how to make or fix something with my hands (and tools of course).

  2. I wish I had better concentration…Covid has kicked that out of me. Better concentration would allow me to be a better book reader and mandolin player. I am not making any resolutions, though. Cheers. ALlan

    1. I think that’s totally normal to have less concentration because of the pandemic. I have struggled with that too. I’m glad you’re not being hard on yourself. Thanks for commenting 🙂

  3. Thank you for your post. You can ask questions? I dislike going to the doctors intensely and part of the reason is that I don’t know what they are doing and I dislike things that are out of my control. LOL.

  4. I wish I could convince ppl to change and have them actually follow through and change. I’ve learned that ppl are incredibly stubborn and often won’t change, unless they have a strong intrinsic motivation. Could you imagine how much easier it would be if everyone sided with you? I guess influencers have this kind of power but I don’t want to be an influencer…. Still, it would be cool to see ppl change knowing that you contributed to helping them.

    P.S. Every year I have to renew the CPR requirements. They changed it to Basic Life Support (BLS). Kudos to getting certified – it’s always a useful thing to have. Now, if I had to actually use it to save a life I would be terrified and scared, not gonna lie. I feel like a deer in headlights a lot of the time. I too have a lot of questions.

    1. I’m with you there about convincing people to change. I am glad it’s not too easy to get people to change. The world would be more messed up if that were the case. I would freeze too with saving a life as well, even though I am certified. I particularly admire paramedics and people who do life-saving surgery. It makes my head reel to think that people are able to do that!
