My desire to learn, whether it is to read, to watch a documentary or to discuss with others an interesting topic, has led me to some of the best thoughts and ideas. It has actually helped me become a better person. I certainly think we can learn something each and every day. We have a responsibility to do so. Seriously! A favorite memory that I have from my childhood is sitting at the dinner table as a family. We, all five of us, were each expected to recall something we learned that day and share it. Even if my mother could only mention that the stew would have tasted much better if she had not run out of onions! I had plenty to say because I kept track of all kinds of trivia throughout the day in order to have the floor that evening. Even then, I wanted to be a good speaker, reporting the news. It was the best way to get my parents attention for a few minutes and it usually sparked some discussion as well. Care to comment?
Well, as long as my brain can process information, I don’t want a day to go by that I can’t say I have something new to share. Are you learning? Be a ‘life-long learner!’
