Since I have finished my required education many years ago, The world has become my classroom and society is my textbook. When I wake up in the morning, Class has begun.
No matter how I prepare myself for the day, mentally, physically, emotionally, I will learn something. I will learn to control my anger when I may not want to at that time. I will see things that I have seen time and time again, but hopefully with appreciation.
Sometimes the textbook is hard to understand and I may not always find the answers to questions right away. I don’t always have pleasant learning experiences, but I am learning.
Class changes without giving notice, sometimes it is welcomed, sometimes the change frustrates, but I move on and continue to learn. Class allows me to make my own decisions and I have to live with the outcome. Yes, some good, some bad.
There are times when Class can be so overbearing, and I wish I didn’t have to attend, and the textbook can be very cruel, but I’m in it and while in it, I choose to learn and to get the most out of it.
Am I better because of it? I’d like to think so. This is our world, and it is, World Class.
