daily prompt: Learning

“Learning” – my immediate thought when I saw it was “well that’s broad”. Then I started to think about my days at school and how I yearned to leave and take flight into the real world and how so many times I was told you’ll miss it one day.

The truth is I do miss it. True I’m still learning almost everyday, but it’s never quite been the same. I’m learning for myself that you don’t have the same guidance in the real world as you do at school. And while life doesn’t set you exams, it does test you. Things will happen in your life that you have little or no control over and sometimes the only person you can rely on to get you through it is yourself.

Learn from your mistakes and always pick yourself back up, don’t wait for someone else to come along and do it for you.
