29 days of giving - day 11 - learning something new
My grandmother said, "Teach something and learn it twice." She may not have been the originator of the phrase, but it is a handy one.
The times I have learned the most I have taught things. More times than not, I frustrate the teacher in the process.
I had the opportunity to complete my Reiki Master/Teacher credential. A couple of years ago, I got the Master level of Reiki, but never did the final step(s) to get the teaching credential.
When the teacher arrived in my life earlier this year, I knew it was time. We got on well. I learned and actually didn't frustrate the life out of her.
I think the gift here was learning to keep my yap shut and let the learning flow.
Shame I didn't learn it when I was in college.
Maybe that's why my grades were poor?
