Still learning after all these years.
When I was young, I thought I would know just about everything by the time I graduated from college.
Hard to believe the egotism of youth!
As a wife, parent, neighbor, friend, employee, boss, entrepreneur I have been challenged to keep learning. The depth of my ignorance is astounding.
I smile when I recall my youthful arrogance. I try to remember my younger self when I deal with younger people who think they know it all.
I have come to understand that I can’t know everything.
I know that I often don’t know what I don’t know.
I can ask, I can read, I can listen. I can learn.
