Learning opens me up to the world that I might otherwise miss. I love to learn something new everyday, even if it is just the definition of a new word. Yes, I was one of the nerds that actually read the dictionary. Of course my spelling capabilities do not reflect that quirk. I have been told my head goes faster than my hands and so the problem with spelling tends to occur a lot. Oh well, love me or leave me but please do not grade me for spelling.
I have achieved a professional certification ande licensing as an Aesthetician and Aesthetics Instructor. That has broadened my horizons to meeting new people as well as new avenues of educational opportunities. Now I have chances to learn about business, professional interaction, a little chemistry (I will try not to blow things up) health issues, alternative natural health practices and so much more.
The learning often leads to spurts of creativity too. Putting into practice what I discover. From new therapies to assist my clients to more entertaining projects that include jewlery making, woodworking and other "crafty" techniques that have absolutely nothing to do with my profession. None the less, every thing thaqt I learn keeps my mind turning and hopefuly evolving.
I look forward to a day when I might be afforded the luxury to simply learn all I want about everything that interests me without having to meet someone else's "standardized test of knowledge". To just achieve and aquire knowledge for knowledge sake seems to me to be a fantastic dream.
