Hello, I was introduced as a new Everyday Role Model recently on Facebook. Today let’s talk about lifelong learning.
I received my college degree after I was over the hill. After starting and stopping college several times due to life getting in the way. I knew I did not want to give up and was determined to cross that finish line. Finally at 52 I received my college degree. I finished school using mostly online classes. There is some debate about virtual classes not being as good as actual physical classes. I think it depends on the student as well as the instructor and class content.
The learning doesn’t stop there though. There is always something new to learn. The important thing is to keep the mind open and to be excited to find the next thing you want to learn more about. You can teach an old dog new tricks. Keep that excitement and joy in life. Look at life through the eyes of a child.
We recently had a preschool foster child move in with us and the amazement and joy she finds in simple every day things that we take for granted is eye opening. I want to challenge you all this month to be more mindful and take a moment to stop and focus on that sip of coffee or that beautiful sunset.
Do you wonder how something works? Take it to the next step and read up on it. Don’t let that saying that curiosity killed the cat stop you. Let that curiosity fuel you and explore all that life has to offer and go find the answers to all of your questions. We may not find all the answers but there is a lot of fun learning new things along the way.

Losing one’s job is painful, it can be one of the most destructive events happening in ones life. I should know I have been through a few of them. Most recently I was laid off March 2nd, 2023. An unexpected shock as the organization I worked for gave no indication there would be any form […]
The pain of being laid off is affecting thousands, but mostly in big tech. It saddens me to say I was just laid off and although I did not work or one of the major big tech companies like Twitter, Alphabet and others we were still apart of financial tech. Here is a recent article […]
Happy New Year 2023! What the new year means to me, to you, to the world. It means something different for everyone. Some create resolutions for the new year to be new person, new goals. I am often reminded of when I would attend my local gym, a 24-hour fitness which by the way is […]
