It’s Sept 5th — Teacher’s Day, and what better blog than a one on how education will always remain the best gift.
Whatever I am today, I owe it to my mother and nobody else. She was the driving force behind me all through and stood by me through thick and thin.
Sometimes I wonder, what would I be without her. Without her unconditional love, the determination to see her children succeed, and her perseverance to give her children the most amazing gift of all time – EDUCATION.
It’s a wonderful and precious gift, the value which one realises as we grow, learn, and take on new challenges in life. Here’s what education has taught me in life:
Makes you a better person
‘Being Human’ is not an easy task. We all have our imperfections and that’s what makes us beautiful. But, education attempts to correct your imperfections. It gives you a sense of being, it teaches you to value those around you, to be grateful, and to be kind. When you are a better person, your worst temptations are kept at bay.
You’re more tolerant
Education just doesn’t mean studying in the best institutions, though it does play a great role in how we turn out as people. With education, you undoubtedly learn tolerance toward people who are different from you, no matter caste, creed, race, religion, and gender. You weigh the circumstances and learn to control your reactions that can put you in hot soup. Rather you accept people the way they are. In today’s world, we meet a multitude of people, and we just learn to accept people the way they are without being too judgemental.
To be grateful
We don’t realise how being grateful can help us realise the value of life and our dear ones. When we are grateful, it reinforces untold trust, and respect with the other person. Being thankful for life’s simplest pleasures and joys is matchless to say the least. So, take time to thank those around you 🙂
Boosts your confidence
We are all chasing our dreams every single day – big or small. You don’t let things bog you down, you keep going, and that’s what makes you confident — to take on anything that life throws at you. You learn from mistakes, and take it as a stepping stone to success. Confidence makes you fearless. And life is about facing your fears. Right?
Thank You Mum, for all beautiful things you taught me.
For giving me the right to education, to be a working woman, and more importantly, to be sane in an insane world!
I can’t thank you enough!
