If you change the way you look at things, The things you look at change.
"I am new and learning" could be a statement reserved for a subset
of the population below an arbitrary
age. Maybe for those below a certain skill level, or a certain E2 level, it would be considered appropriate.
Coming at these words from a different angle, though, the perspective they represent may be employed to good advantage by anyone.
This is not to disparage
any of the clear value that experience and age should
bring with it, of course. The phrase that comes to mind is, "seeing
the world with new eyes". We may come by that vision vicariously
, when we're around a child, as we observe the fascination
with which they view the things we often see
This point of view
is one that I strive to actively cultivate. How cool would it be to be able to switch this world view
on at will?
May I never cease
to make "I am new and learning" my mantra
