Teaching and Learning

In my professional working role I have to deliver training to others, I like to think I am an enthusiastic, knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging teacher.  As a learner I am passionate and spirited. I love learning new things, I am one of those pupils that ask questions a lot and critically analyse every detail.  For myself to have a greater understanding of something means that I can accept it.  I guess it can be quite tiresome for some.  The quote “Tell me and I’ll forget, show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand” springs to mind when I think of how I learn best.

The majority of our life lessons though do not come from a formal classroom setting, they come from the people we see each and every day.  We all have something to offer, we all have experiences to share.  We learn from the people who enter our lives just as much from those who leave it.  Throughout our lives there are times when we have the knowledge to teach others and there are times when we have to allow ourselves to learn the lessons from others.

Today I have added the poem, People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.  I am sure you have seen it before, it highlights the benefits of learning from others and allowing others into our lives.

When you figure out which one it is, 
you will know what to do for each person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON. . .
It is usually to meet a need you have expressed.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty, 
to provide you with guidance and support,

to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.

They may seem like a godsend, and they are!

They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then, without any wrongdoing on your part,
or at an inconvenient time, this person will say
or do something to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die.

Sometimes they walk away. 
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.

What we must realize is that our need has been met,
our desire fulfilled, their work is done.

The prayer you sent up has been answered. 
And now it is time to move on.

Then people come into your life for a SEASON….
Because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn.

They bring you an experience of peace, or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.

They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons
things you must build upon in order to have 
a solid emotional foundation.

Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person,
and put what you have learned to use in all 
other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
