As a young Mom I spend a lot of time at home. I take care of my daughter, the house, dinner, etc. Sometimes I feel like I do the exact same thing everyday and I'm not learning or progressing in life. But through it all I try to remember that even thought it seems like I'm not doing much, I really am doing alot. Even though I'm not in school right now like some Mom's are, I try to remember that I am still gaining an education, just in a different way.
Education can come in so many forms. It's not only going to school, but it is learning through your everyday life. For example, with my daughter being the first child in our family, she is being tested on. I've never been a Mom before, so everything is so new! When the next child comes around, I will have learned things not to do and things that I should do for him/her. I am the oldest in my family so I know how it feels to be the "test child." I only hope that my daughter can see that I am doing my best for her.
Learning also comes in forms of trials. Every one of us has trials that we face almost daily. It could be an emotional trial, a physical trial or a mental trial. It doesn't matter, we all have trials to face, but with each trial we are learning and we are growing. We come to understand ourselves and others better. I don't think there has ever been a day where I haven't learned something new.
When we think of Education we think of schooling. I believe going to school is very important but it is also important to remember that we are learning all day everyday whether we are in school or not. None of us are perfect. We are always striving to be a better. As Gordon B. Hinkley has said "Try a little harder to be a little better." Each day through the education we are gaining we are trying harder each day to be a little better then yesterday. So, what will you learn today?
