Here is the audio of this blog post if you prefer to listen rather than read, or both 🙂
I had a thought yesterday while I was learning something new. I was trying to figure out how to start recording audio and podcasting for the very first time. I spent part of the day googling, recording, uploading, and using new platforms. And it was a success. I felt really empowered and really good at the end of it.
Later in the day while I was doing my yoga, it hit me! I flashed back to my kindergarten class. I can still ‘feel’ how that felt. It was so exciting, new and fresh. I can remember vividly turning the pages of the coloring book, the smell of the crayons and the vibrant colors as I created in this book. It was my masterpiece. I can still remember the moment when I fell in love with Robin’ egg blue. It was exhilarating. It got me thinking…..
Why do we lose this feeling and why do we sometimes feel inadequate when we don’t know something, or when we want to learn something new? Why as we age, do we think we are supposed to be more adept at learning things or that we ‘should know how to do things’. Or why are we afraid to ask questions and expose our inadequacy?
I think we should all go back to kindergarten in the way we learn. We can get excited and feel like we have our whole life ahead of us, because we DO! The rest of our life is our whole life and we can learn new things, open our minds, venture out, try new things, use crayons, paint, draw, and even stomp our feet if we want. 🙂
See you in class!
