I realize this is sad. I simply don’t have an acumen for numbers, and I’ve decided not to waste any more time trying to get good at something I’m not.
Wasting time wondering why my brain has difficulty with simple calculations is a waste of time. It’s also a waste of brainpower I could use for other stuff like tap dancing, baking brownies, rhinestoning, or making graphics for my CAPTION CONTESTS on Instagram.
In every field, there are ranges of expertise. Given this, it makes sense to get good at doing what you do well.
I’m not saying you have to stay in your lane, but sometimes, in order to move forward, it’s a good idea.
Staying in your lane doesn’t mean you’re not a risk-taker, or that you’re not trying, or that you’ve given up. It means you accept your limitations. We all have them, so it’s no biggie.
I can’t do a pirouette, but I’m still a dancer.
More confessions: I transpose numbers, I daydream a lot, and I get lost going places I’ve been to countless times.
I’ve stopped worrying about what I don’t do well. Self-doubt got me nowhere. I decided to play to my strengths.
One of my preeminent strengths is my ability to count 5,6,7,8.
That has served me well.
