I have been blessed with another eye-opening experience. Two days ago, while strengthening Mohammed (=reading and writing session), little 8 years old Ariana joined us. She has started to repeat English words and she was really excited from this learning adventure. So, I have asked her in “exchange” to teach me Farsi meanings of those words.
Thanks to Mohammed and little cutie girl Ariana, I could affirm and practice yet another important truths to be lived by. Here they are:
#1 You can learn everywhere.
Like I am learning in Tehran, Farsi language from 8 years old girl and Mohammed is giving me education in remembering to be grateful for my life’s gifts and advantages.
Guys, always seek out learning opportunities, they are all around you. Don’t ignore it once it presents itself in front of you. See it. Feel it. Enjoy the flow.
#2 Everyone is superior to you in something.
Like Ariana, is superior to me in Farsi language or Mohammed is a great teacher for being courageous and strong.
Therefore, respect everybody! Gently observe and then find out what their art is. Ask them questions about it. Appreciate them.
#3 Learning is contagious.
It was just two of us in the beginning (me and Mohammed), then suddenly Ariana appeared on the scence with her passion to learn with us. Today morning, also Mohammed’s Mum was exchanging English- Farsi words with me.
Offer your knowledge first and you others will join you naturally.
