Every now and then it strikes me just how AMAZING our brains are. They have the ability to completely focus. We can be completely absorbed by something if we love it.
My little boy Noah is nearly 5 and watching his progress and development over the last 5 years has been an eduction for me. His brain is totally like a sponge. He soaks everything up and retains it.
When he repeats a word you’d rather he didn’t this can seem like a problem!
Now he is at school and learning to read, write, and do number work, it makes me hugely proud. He is SO into learning that he takes every opportunity.
Last night we went to the pub for a drink and the whole time he was asking his dad to write him number problems to answer. His attention span was unbelievable.
When we are interested and determined it seems that human beings can achieve anything. This thought inspires me massively.
My quest to play the piano better seems so much more hopeful and possible when I think of it this way. All I need to do is to keep practising and stay enthusiastic.
SO if there is something you would love to be better at then know that it really is possible. Be enthusiastic and open minded and enjoy every minute knowing that there are no limits. Your brain is AMAZING.
