Learning: We are our experiences.

There are arguably two types of learning; the first being the one we immediately associate with the word.

Traditional learning. Teacher teaches student.

But there’s another type of learning, a subliminal type. A type that changes our character, our prejudices and our lives. That type of learning is experience.

What we learn through experience is more valuable than what we will ever learn in a classroom. Experiences teach us about the world, the people that inhabit it and the interaction between the two. It’s inspiring knowing that with each new day, comes an endless supply of opportunities to experience something, something we’ve never experienced before.

And this is something I am truly excited about. I am excited to find something, something that pushes us, something that shapes who we become.

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt
