We Must Keep Learning How To Live
As long as you are living, keep learning how to live. ~Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I don’t write the things I share here because I’m an expert or “guru” – that simple fact is something I’ve made clear many times.
The truth is I have faults. I often make bad choices & I’ve hurt other people – even recently. I’m struggling on this journey of life but I’m learning…almost every day.
I remember the saying, “the day we stop learning is the day we die”. Well, I’m not ready for that yet, & I probably have plenty of mistakes left to make.
Overcoming Our Faults
Someone wise once said, “There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see”.
We aren’t always aware of our faults – but when we have been made aware, we should do everything possible to overcome & correct them. If someone or something has brought faults of yours to your attention, the greatest fault would be ignoring it, making excuses and not learning to overcome it. We have to be open enough to learn the lessons life has in store for us.
What Life Is All About
Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know. ~Daniel J. Boorstin
Life is about learning & growing. It’s an education long after we leave school and through our adult years. We don’t just learn about reading & writing – but about ourselves, patience, compassion, trust, understanding & relating to others.
A Challenge For Today
Everything you do to learn & grow will make some kind of difference in your life & the lives of those around you.
Today, my challenge to you is to do at least two of these:
- Learn something new about yourself today.
- Learn something new about someone else today.
- Acknowledge & take action on a personal issue you’re already aware of.
