Learning really is lifelong, isn’t it? I tried to send a video blog last week and I’m not even sure if it went out! what a steep learning curve social media is and yet, I’ve changed something within me that allows me to see this as fun, rather than the burden I’ve been pretending it was, for all these years!
Part of the key has been to recognise my learning style. If I try to learn in the way others do, because that’s that you “should” do I don’t get very far. I know I’m kinaesthetic and so I learn best by doing. audios go into one ear and out of the other and I never make time to sit and watch videos, but get me hands on with someone who can show me, in the moment and it’s great, so that’s what I did this week. I hired social media expert Jessica Shailes to spend 1/2 a day with me to lead me through facebook and youtube and at least I feel enthused now and I have resources to refer back to.
And of course, life itself is about learning. About learning who you are and what you like to do, what brings you joy. EFT too, is all about learning. if you’re coming on my courses now, you’ll be getting a different experience than if you came on a course even 5 years back, because we can’t help but learn and refine what we do, in the light of our experiences.
“And even though we were taught as children that there was a right way to do things and a wrong way and we’ve been acting as though that’s true, right up until now, I wonder how I’d feel if I could really FEEL that there is no right or wrong and that it’s all just learning? And that actually all I’m doing is gathering vital information? And I deeply and completely accept myself and the little child that I was when I first learnt that old stuff!”
