Skills, Talents, and Interests

I love soccer. I could play everyday. The crazy thing is that I haven't really improved much since about little leagues. I played for a few years as a kid (10-14 or so), played on the middle school team, then moved up to high school JV. The slow, chubby Indian kid finally quit, so I became the worst player on the team. The next year we got some new freshmen, and some upperclassmen that sucked. Then by the time senior year rolled around coach had to put me on the varsity team out of pity, but also to make the other guys feel good about themselves during practice. Over those several years I never really even got good at the basics. Why does it have to be like that? I don't feel like I'm alone here. I think a lot of people just aren't good at the things they like to do.
There's a lot of stuff that I like to do but I don't do well: reading books-i'm not good at keeping my head up, playing the piano-i can play through the song good enough for me to enjoy it but nobody else, guitar-i have to make up stuff easy enough for me to play, singing-i've always wanted to be able to express myself vocally but just don't got the right pipes, sports-i don't know what's going on around me well enough to do stuff on teams, dancing-good thing i never let pride get in the way, school-i forget it before i even learn it... But am I going to let that stop me from doing what I do? Heck no! When did I ever have to be the best or amazing?
So what's my point? That I suck? Not really. I guess it's just that I think it's ok to accept mediocrity in many aspects of life and just enjoy doing what you're doing. If you can't list it under "talents" who says you can't list it under "stuff I like to do." If I had to be good at everything I did in life I'd have done much less stuff. I think you can be virtually talentless and love life.
