Education is just a fancy way to say learning. Education doesn’t only happen in a classroom, and it isn’t confined to the years you spent in formal education beginning at 5-years-old. Learning happens to all of us, every single day. Learning keeps life evolving, growing and exciting!
Everyone should always be actively learning. At least, I hope we are. Education is healthy for our minds. It keeps us engaged in life. Curiosity isn’t only for children.
Learning Life Lessons
Life is the greatest (and sometimes the harshest) teacher. Nobody can escape the day to day situations that forces us to learn how to adjust and adapt and learn to do it better the next day.
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.Henry Ford
