I went to see the play The Book of Mormon last night and it truly is a funny musical. The whole theatre audience was laughing throughout.
What I loved about the message though, was the idea that you might think you are the teacher, when you are actually the student. In life. As a parent. In your job. As a friend.
In fact, I really think those who move through life as a constant student, end up finding more happiness. If they are open to new ideas, curious about how things work, not afraid to ask questions.
As basketball coach John Wooden once said, “It’s what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
And as writer William Arthur Ward once said, “Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.”
May we always look for ways to grow and follow our heart while we’re at it. Because change is always the result when things are seen in a new way.
As poet e.e. cummings once said, “I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.”
