(or your father?)
Well, I have the answer!!!
It gives you immense zest for life when you can feel learning taking place.
And you'll soon forget about the person in the mirror!
There's actually some science to back this up!!
well sort of....it's a bit of a goofy site, but the little video is hilarious and laughing creates endorphins too!
I love learning and it always makes me feel good. and....learning leads to happiness, and the happier you are, the better you learn. It's all to do with the endorphins of course.
but...what to learn??
Well you could learn something new...take a look at what your local community centers have to offer, and art centers etc...there's nearly always a lot going on. Don't be afraid that you won't be any good!
Of course you'll be no good!!! you've never done it before! Also please don't think you need something magical called "talent"!! yes, to get really really good at something very difficult - whether in music or science or athletics - you need the right kind of body and mind, the right kind of upbringing and excellent coaching and masses of persistence....BUT
....to enjoy learning, to learn something new in just about anything is a real boost. And teachers are very happy to help and they don't expect you to know it and be an immediate success!

okay I know it's very unlikely that you live here! But I'm sure your community has all kinds of things to offer.
and you can also take classes on line...I teach here and have new classes starting all the time - last week was The Great Scrap Quilt! And this week it's abstract art for quilt makers...
Join me in learning!
and, if you have been, thanks for reading.
Do write and comment on what you have been learning recently and the effect it had upon you.
