Secret Desires for Ourselves

We all have things that we wish about ourselves.  We would like to be smarter, faster, bigger, smaller, better lovers, friends, fathers, etc.  Some of these desires are easily achievable like trying something new at your favorite restaurant.  Other desires are impossible (like wanting to fly).  And still others are things that would take a considerable amount of effort, but would be useful or deeply fulfilling.  Some might call these personal goals, but for me these kinds of things only turn into goals if I decide to pursue them.

Today I thought of a few of these desires as I was dreaming about my life (my job lends itself to this kind of introspection).  Both of these could turn into goals easy enough, but I wanted to share them here so I could maybe start a discussion or at least glean some good insight into some of my friends own desires/goals.  The first secret desire is that I've always wanted to be bilingual.  I deeply respect people who have taken the time to learn another language and I love the idea of being able to interact with people from other parts of the world.  The other desire was to take on some sort of hands on craft like building furniture.  I love working with my hands and creating, and the thought of passing down something I created to future generations inspires me.

How about you?  Share a secret desire, personal goal about yourself and maybe why you are drawn to the idea.
