Lifelong Learning One Step at a Time!


You're not dead yet.  Keep learning!
I have been counseled over the years to continue in lifelong learning.  I supposed that this meant formal education and I have had some degree of guilt over my reluctance to pursue more formal training. However, I am finding that in my everyday pursuits learning is ever present.  Here are just of few of the things I have learned in recent months …

Health Care –

  • How to use ice, compression, heat, and massage more effectively for muscle repair.
  • Magnesium works!
  • Heel lifts also work.

Technology –

  • How to use an iPhone.
  • How to activate an iPhone – repeatedly!
  • How to use an email service.
  • How to build, publish and edit a website! This one!

Relationships –

  • How to pack a lunch for my husband on a daily basis. (Long story, but this is a new talent!)
  • Facetime.
  • How to win friends and influence runners with just one cookie. Oh, wait … I’ve known that one for years!
  • Some people are introverts and my exuberance can and does wear them out from time to time.
These are only a few of the new things I have learned lately.  Some days it feels as if the learning will never happen, but when I continue to plug along, eventually the light bulb appears and things become clearer. In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do, not that the nature of the thing has changed but that our power to do has increased.”

Carry on!
