Did anyone ever ask you “what did you learn today?”  If you were like me, it happened when I was younger.  At that time it was just something I did with my parents. Part of our routine.  It didn’t seem significant. And often times, the exchange ended in their dissatisfaction of my answer so it just sucked more.
Over the years we all learn.  On some things faster and other things slower and probably something everyday.  But how often do we miss the real learning opportunities?
We pile up our learning by taking exams.  Thinking that if we just pass enough to get through to the next phase of our lives, we are learned (lur-nid).  When in fact we fail to SEE what our presence here is trying to teach us through life’s true tests.  How does this happen?  How do we lose sight of the meaning in each day?
The manner in which we approach tests, who we become as a result, and how we choose to continue the journey after, proves fateful.
If we were to step back and take a deeper participation, wouldn’t we be happier?  If we logged the human lesson each day and added it to the next, couldn’t it lead to contentment?  Cheezy?  Possibly.
But, could I have finally grasped the key to emancipation?
You would have thought by now,  I’d have learned something.
There’s too many things that I haven’t done yet
There’s too many sunsets I haven’t seen
You can’t waste the day wishing it’d slow down
You would’ve thought by now
I’d have learned something
I made up my mind when I was a young girl
I’ve been given this one world
I won’t worry it away, no
Now and again I lose sight of the good life
I get stuck in a low light
But then love comes in
How far do I have to go to get to you
Many the miles
Many the miles
How far do I have to go to get to you
Many the miles
But send me the miles and I’ll be happy to follow you, love
I do what I can wherever I end up
To keep giving my good love
And spreading it around
‘Cause I’ve had my fair share of take care and goodbyes
I’ve learned how to cry
And I’m better for that
Sing, how
