Life-long learning is a skill that I strive to hold onto through every aspect of my life. This comes to fruition in my life by reading a variety of books is a way to continue learning, participating in a variety of activities through my home church and being intentional about seeking new experiences. We can never know everything there is to know about the world, but we can strive to learn and understand the world around us more each and every day. Another habit I want to maintain in my life is being diligent about trying new things as often as possible. There is much to learn from new experiences, places and people.
