Happy Teacher’s Day To All Of You!
Probably most of you will wonder what’s wrong with this blogger! Teacher’s day is on October 5th! Well not here in Lebanon! We celebrate Teacher’s Day on March 9th every year! It was a Saturday this year and I was out and busy enjoying my weekend, so I didn’t have the chance to say thank you to all the teachers out there that are providing power to the generations! Yes knowledge is power; it’s an ultimate power that never stops to grow daily! (Or at least it shouldn’t) Happy belated Teacher’s Day!
Can you imagine yourself 10 years ago or maybe 20 years ago, the things you used to believe, the mistakes you did (which is not a shame but just a simple comparison) the beliefs you had, everything that you know now and you didn’t know before! Imagine how your life would have been if you still the same…If you still naive or shallow, arrogant or hateful…If your knowledge was only limited on the things you learned in school or high school…
If 10 years passed and you didn’t improve, I mean can you imagine?
(If you still the same, then this post is not for you 🙂 )
Imagine what knowledge could perform in your life! Knowledge is not necessary this diploma you have, knowledge is all what life taught you so far, books you read, people you met, experiences, hurdles, good and bad moments, losses, love and friendship, family support or neglect… Every single moment and each person you ever met! As they say we’re all learners and we can also be teachers! And how lucky we are if we were the ones who provided the good lessons not the hurtful ones!
On this special occasion, happy belated teacher’s day to all the people that came into my life; yes all of you without any exception! Thank you for those who were loyal and loving, you taught me to be softer, thank you for the very sensitive friends that thought it’s only about them and walked away, you taught me how to close my doors very tight, to the bitches, the ungrateful, the narcissist, the charming, the humble, the children, the young and the old, the open minded and the fanatics, the smart and the stupid, the mean and the goodhearted, the snakes and the lambs, the hard and the flexible…to the people that thought they used me and hurt me, you have no power here except you provided me with superpowers!
To every person that ever walked into my life, I have learned something from each and every one of you because I believe everyone I meet is a teacher, they cross my path for a reason, and so it was! Whether good or bad, whether I was taught to do or not to do, to be or not to be, you are all a great asset and major part!
You are all teachers and I’m a continuous learner!
