One Hundred Sixty Eight: Teaching

“None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.”  – Thurgood Marshall

Tuesday, June 17th

I’ve always struggled with self-discipline. So I rely more heavily on teachers to keep me focused on my goals.  So when I see brilliant teachers around me, it warrants taking a moment out to thank them for their contributions. They are embodying the best of what we can be for one another – a message of hope.

Our teachers are everywhere. A neighbor. A tai chi sifu. A partner. A child. A friend. And less obvious, a grocery clerk or a garbageman or a librarian. We all have something to share.

Do you take the time to listen to the teachers around you?
