That phrase "New skills lend sparkle to our lives" really gives a feeling of hope and joy.
As most of my friends and family know, I'm not the sharpest tack in the box when it comes to tech. Thinking of it in this way, as a skill that gives sparkle to my life, helps me get a new perspective on that skill. We can also think of old skills that we loved but somehow put aside for whatever reason, and feel the strong desire to pick them up again. I have not oil painted in ever so long and I've been really missing it. It's like if I don't sketch, there is a hole in my spirit that needs to be filled and if I don't get back to it, I will feel such a deep loss.
What skills can we pick up, new or old that can bring us joy. Even taking ten minutes a day to make a start can really feel healing.
Just do it!
