A lot of great stuff is not taught in our traditional school systems. As a matter of fact, some really awesome stuff is not taught by culture, nor in our homes. Stuff like life skills, basic financial skills, the value of time, and yes my personal favorite… RELATIONAL SKILLS. Why ?!?!?!?!? Because you simply can’t teach what you don’t know. Most of our parents, and those working in the traditional school system, were never taught this stuff themselves.It stands to reason, they themselves can’t teach it to us (or our children). Trust me; these are skills that can be taught, learned, and shared with others. But maybe, just maybe, it really isn’t anyone else’s responsibility to teach us this. Maybe it is our’s to seek out and devour as if life depends on it. Because honestly, in most cases, life really does depend on it. Don’t believe me? Just ponder for a hot moment what your life or those you love would look like if these skills were mastered. Yeah, like I said.. really awesome stuff. Be a life learner. Even if you don’t ever master these skills, I promise you will smile a whole lot more just by trying. I know I do.
