I remember my last day of college. I didn’t skip across campus, but oh, I wanted to! I didn’t have to take another class ever again … unless I wanted to. And back back then, I was convinced I would never want to take another college class ever again.
I haven’t gone back to college, but I’ve taken a variety of classes, mentorships, attended conferences and retreats. All voluntarily … all because I wanted to learn something. Taking a class, signing up for a mentorship, attending a conference or retreat was the best way to find out what I needed to know. Afterward, I was often dead-tired physically and mentally … but my mind was pinging with all the new information, all the possibilities.
I’m not the same person I was when I walked across that college campus — and it isn’t all about what I’ve learned in workshops. Sometimes the more significant truths have been learned in the still hours in the middle of the night, when it’s just me, my journal, and my open Bible. Sometimes the “Aha!” moments have happened in the midst of conversetion with trusted family or friends.
In Your Words: What’s the last thing you learned? And how did you learn it: in a classroom? A conference? A conversation?
