193 Pieces by Liszt Added to Piano Street's Sheet Music Library
The latest addition to our already vast piano sheet music library almost doubles the number of pieces by Franz Liszt. Last week, we added 193 pieces by this multifaceted composer, taking a significant step towards our goal of publishing a complete library of the classical piano repertoire. Our Liszt section is now nearly complete, but more will follow - with this extremely productive and hard-working composer-pianist it's hard to know where to stop! Read more >>

What life achievements are you proud of?

What have you got to be proud of?  Did you achieve your life long goals.   Be it small or outstanding?    Bragging permitted :)

Not dead yet, not homeless, and I haven't had to pawn any musical equipment.

I can also consume a lot of alcohol and occasionally trick women into letting me intromit for a short time.

A full head of hair, and only sort of overweight.  Excellent oral hygiene and skin care.  Sharp dresser.

I can play piano pretty fast, and also pretty slow:  most times people are fooled into thinking it's OK and put a few bucks in the tip jar.
My name is Nellie, and I take pride in helping protect the children of my community through active leadership roles in my local church and in the Boy Scouts of America.  Bad word make me sad.

I guess I am more a practical achiever.   Since  lockdown, I haven't  been to a hair salon, I  have learned to cut it myself and a darn good job too, now I no longer have to lash out on a hair do, when I can do it myself.
Another practical  achievement is I have become quite competent at sorting out computer trouble,  be it reasonable.
I love. bread making.
  And I have achieved at a much more  mature age the ability to actually  play a few tunes  on the piano. OK, not performance level, but my own home enjoyable level as a pastime and a hobby.  Very nice too.
And I am very proud of my daughter who is a Practice Nurse, and son also in the medical profession. 

I drink a very modest amount of alcohol, so my brains don't get marinated. 

That's about it folks.

In my next life, I want to teach music and be a concert pianist.

Can you really have any "life" achievements at 28?  :P At any rate, I'm dont often dwell on things I have done but prefer to move on to the next thing, so there isn't much where I feel pride per se. Things I think I can take pride in involve living according to my values, and things I'm not proud of tend to involve being out of integrity.

Being persistent I suppose.  And then realizing I should be a little smarter about that, meaning it's not always the best direction to do what's worked in the past.  Sometimes that's end up having a negative effect.

I was just thinking that.  I agree with myself.

I still agree with myself.  Not giving up is what I was going to say.... again.

I donít mean to be a downer but turning 30. I had a really rough time in my youth. Multiple attempts to prevent myself from getting there. I lived a reckless life for a while. Made some poor choices too. So reaching 30 felt like an accomplishment. I was happy, healthy, in a good relationship, about to start a new career path. It felt like a big win. And what Iím most proud of. Beating everything, including myself, to get there.

I am proud of to become independent. I can do what I want and the way I want. I am so happy to playing piano again with no compulsion from my parents  :D

I bought some ice cream at the store last week that I forgot about until today so that's pretty cool. Seriously though, my family and having two great kids. Also, graduating college - I dropped out for a few years and it's always tough to finish when you do that.

I was just thinking, "Not too many.  But I'm still working on them."   So I agree with myself.... again.

It was when I stopped chasing lifelong pursuits and accepted that I was just ordinary.. that was the start of real improvements. I became a better person. Even more important I became happy.

I know that was lame but when u get to that stage.. itís implementation is better than it sounds.
