Why is it that when we are in school learning sucks big time. We cannot wait to leave school, to be all grown up, yet when we hear our elders telling us to enjoy our young years we just blow them off. Then we kinda get lost in the world around us with our daily work, marriages and child rearing. The children eventually leave the nest and we just wonder around the house. Then it hits us! Why don’t we start doing online courses, those distance learning courses. For us that were unable to go to university or college it is the ideal learning tool. Then we can’t get enough of the stuff. We page through course after course trying to decide what to study.
I am very guilty of that. I have just finished 2 courses and am looking for a 3rd course to study. Now I want to fill my mind with knowledge, I have an insatiable urge to grasp all that I should have learnt when I was younger. But true to the saying “Better late than never” I will endeavour to forge forth and soak up all that I can before my brain truly succumbs to age. I fill my mind up with articles on travel and have my dreams to hang on to.
Learning…… we are never to old that is for sure.
