Inspiration Prompt – Life’s Teachers

Monday, June 29th, 2009

For this week’s inspiration prompt I want to share a beautiful quote by Charlotte Joko Beck:

“Life always gives us
exactly the teacher we need
at every moment.
This includes every mosquito,
every misfortune,
every red light,
every traffic jam,
every obnoxious supervisor (or employee),
every illness, every loss,
every moment of joy or depression,
every addiction,
every piece of garbage,
every breath.

Every moment is the Guru.”

Truly inspiring!!!

Journaling Prompt #24 – Remember Your Teachers

Teaching Math or Something

A teacher affects eternity;
he can never tell where his influence stops.

Henry Brooks Adams had said and I agree. Our teachers define us and make us the individuals that we are; and by saying “our teachers” I do not necessarily mean the traditional school teacher.

The most valuable lessons I have learned didn’t come from my school-teachers. [Though I have had my share of inspiring school and university teachers as well.] My best teachers were the ones who have touched my life in some way.

I have recently shared with you the lessons I have learned from my nephew who has autism and a while back I have shared the way my grandfather, of blessed memory, had taught me some great lessons, which I have come to appreciate only after he passed away.

Similarly I have learned a lot from my parents, my friends, colleagues, public figures, bloggers I have been following and sometimes even complete strangers who have striked a chord in me while passing through the street.

For this week’s journaling prompt I ask you to remember your teachers.

While documenting the teachers in your life you might want to record the following things:

  • Who were the most memorable teachers in your life?
  • What were the most valuable lessons that you have learned?
  • Which lessons do you wish to pass on to your children?

Share –

Leave a comment and share who were your most treasured teachers and lessons with me.

I would like to mention two of my readers who have already written about great teachers in their lives:

  1. Kim Mailhot.
  2. Kristin Saegaert.

I hope you will enjoy reading their posts as much as I did.
