My fellow blogger, Jane Levesque, posted a beautiful and poignant tribute to her dad here. This got me thinking about the real-time lessons we learn from the non-traditional teachers in our lives.

Our parents, grandparents, children, friends, mentors, _____ (you fill in the blank) are teachers. All we have to do is keep our eyes and ears open so that we can learn what they have to teach us. Hopefully we learn from their experiences and pass on that knowledge.

Jane’s dad said, “Don’t quit.” That simple lesson will keep me travelling through transitions.

Please feel free to share the lessons you’ve learned on your journey.
