LEARN. I LOVE to learn. I was always that nerdy kid in school that didn’t mind the homework and the projects. I was relieved and sad at the same time when I graduated college and had to enter the “real world” with no more classes or learning. I sometimes do take classes for fun that I see pop-up here and there. I love learning new things.
One reason I LOVE the internet, blogs, and podcasts is because it makes it easy to learn new things…it’s also very affordable. Somedays I’ll be listening to a podcast and I’ll learn a ton of things I never knew before and then I’ll go and tweet about it or tell others, “hey did you know xyz about abc? This is fascinating!” Most of the time the people sometimes don’t really respond much as they don’t find learning all that fascinating but I digress.
I can remember when I was in school I couldn’t wait to be older so I didn’t have to go anymore and my teachers would tell me, “You should never stop learning.” I never really understood what they meant by that until a few years ago when I was an adult and finally realized that life is like a big classroom. EVERYTHING we do is a lesson..even if we don’t want to see it that way when we are in the moment.
So many times I have looked back on different life events and realized how much I have learned about myself and other people by my experiences. Looking back I grew so much by processing my fathers death, working crappy jobs, and dating creepy guys. It’s also given me things to laugh and cry about in the process.
