“I am always doing what I cannot do yet, in order to learn how to do it.”
― Vincent van Gogh
I love to learn new things. Most often of course I learn by doing it wrong until I get it right. To this end I have made mistakes in art, poetry, writing, parenting, relationships, sales and so many other areas but gradually in some I have improved and continue hopefully to do so. My partner despairs that I’ll ever master some of the subtleties of doing laundry among other things but as I said, hopefully I learn from my mistakes.
For a long time I was afraid of trying new things and failing. It has taken me a long time to learn that as long as I am trying new things I cannot fail nor grow old. This has been a learning that has been long in coming and probably one of the most important things I can ever pass on to my kids.
