EDDD 18 – All I Want – Sharpen Your Senses


For Day Three of my “All I Want” series, I’d like to know in what way, if you could, you would improve one of your senses.

Sure, there are the five senses we all know, and if you’d like to pick one of those – great! I’d like to have my 20/10 eyesight back! But apart from sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch, there are other senses which are less tangible. Intuition, for instance. Or perhaps a sharper sense of when your stomach is full, to make it easier not to overeat! (I’ll take that one too.)

So today I’d like you to put your thinking cap on and come up with something creative. And if not, there’s always the big five.

…Annnnd, GO!

  1. Yes I would love to have perfect eyes, I do hate wearing glasses!! πŸ˜‰


  2. I would like to enhance my sense of purpose. Living in randomness has it’s advantages but at some point the compass needs to stop spinning.


    • Especially if it’s Captain Jack Sparrow’s. πŸ™‚

      Interesting thought though. Having direction is a good thing. To be able to sharpen that sense would give a clearer vision of what you really want. Nice one, my dear. πŸ™‚ Thanks.


  3. I could probably use a good dose of common sense myself.


  4. I wouldn’t object to perfect eyesight.
    Otherwise, I really should invest in a chain for my readers.


  5. Sense of total world domination 2014.


  6. Hmmm normally I would say my eyesight, but then I wouldn’t have as recognizable a character as I do for my blog Avatars.


  7. I like what Charles said, and my creativity – that’s on many levels. My common sense, that I’m denying, in getting back into things that help me stay alive, that I enjoy. Do you ever get into a rut and lose track of those small things that make you happy? Oops, is that too many senses…


    • Never too many! πŸ™‚

      I actually used to be in a huge rut. Then one day I said I wanted some excitement in my life and my youngest son was born. I’ve not had a boring day since. πŸ˜›

      I would love to sharpen my sense of creativity as well. Nice one, Myas. πŸ™‚


      • Being a single mom with two kids, 7 years apart, life hasn’t been dull. There were times we could’ve used a little dull. Other things though, like after 10 years in the medical profession and I began school again, I became aware unless I was chatting up medical this and thats, I’d forgotten how to otherwise communicate. I had to be diversified, knowledgeable about many things, procedures, policies, laws, business, psychology and counseling, customer service and diplomacy, which you’d think would fine tune universal people skills but it didn’t. In that I was in a medical rut. Since I’ve been here, back in a town I really didn’t want to return to, I’ve gotten myself into more ruts within the whirlwind that’s surrounded me on so many levels, yet the one constant is my grandson. There’s no way, there’s no such thing as boring with him. He reminds me to get out of the ruts and saves his grandma’s life in a sense the way my kids being there used to. I try to save him right back the way I did my them.
        Common sense could include fine tuning staying out of ruts. πŸ™‚


  8. my eyesight, though i may have to rename my blog )


  9. I’m with you. I’d want my eyesight back again and not need my glasses.
    Other senses I’d like to develop? The ability to determine a person’s true nature in their first sentence would be good. I would use that super power for good I promise. It would help me to understand them and to interact with them accordingly. I’d also like to develop (in my depth) the ability to not judge someone by anything other than their heart.


  10. My stomach lets me know when it’s full. I just ignore it.

    I’d say supernatural sense. Like vampire look decayed, ghosts are visible, possessed mortals look like zombies, werewolves can never hide their true form, fae are all glittery, and so on. You know they have to be out there, somewhere, otherwise where did the myths come from? And maybe I already have this sense! But they aren’t out there. I’m going to assume that one. πŸ˜›


  11. First to have my eyesight fully back. Next to be able to use my 3. eye better, even my intuition use to help a lot.
    You are really forcing me to think very well, before I feel able to answer those questions.


    • That’s a good thing, right? πŸ™‚

      A third eye would definitely come in handy for being able to see what the other two can’t.
      Thanks very much for commenting (and thinking hard) Irene! πŸ˜€


  12. I don’t want anything special. But perfect vision would be awesome!


    • Wouldn’t it though? I haven’t been wearing glasses for long, but I miss not having to squint all the time when I take them off. πŸ˜›

      Thanks for chiming in, Pamela πŸ™‚


      • I’ve worn glasses since I was 5. You’d think I would be used to it. But I hate wearing them when I read (my near vision is perfect) so I’m always searching for them for everything else. And now bifocals stink.


        • It’s quite the leap to go to bifocals, eh? It’s like admitting you’re like your grandmother… old. πŸ˜›

          My middle vision is perfect – I need glasses for distance, and have them for reading too, but since the invention of the e-reader, I just make the font bigger. Problem solved. Otherwise I’d need trifocals – and someone to invent them. haha


  13. I’d like my eyesight to be good enough to not have glasses any more. Outside of the 5 senses, I’d want my sense of forethought to be so acute that it borders on precognition.
