What are Your Teachable Moments?
Each month I’ll be discussing my book, “Teachable Moments.” I shared my memoir by writing short stories and shared the many lessons I’ve learned. It took me decades for some of those lessons to sink in, but learning is a process. Isn’t that what life is about, learning to live and, living to learn?
Today, we are living through difficult and challenging times. People are suffering from extreme pain, injustices, and losses. Somehow, I cannot imagine life will ever be the same again. But then, when I reflect on my life, I am reminded with every change I went through, life did not stay the same.
We are now living in the year 2020, and what is taking place? A Covid-19 pandemic and protests against racial injustices. The death of George Floyd killed by a police officer was sickening and heartbreaking. Why does it take us so long to make reasonable changes? What have we learned?
Each month in my blog, I will mention a topic from my book and ask a question. If you would like to participate, please share.
This month I want to reflect on a few lessons I’ve learned when I was a child. In my first story, I have a very vivid memory of when our family moved from one farm to another.
What did I learn?
Change is part of life.
Working together taught me that being a team player makes the job easier.
Nothing ever stays the same.
Question for you: What event or experience in your childhood helped shape the person you are today?
