While I’d love to make this a rant about the system of education in India and how teaching and learning are not what they used to be, I think enough has been written on this subject. I love that no matter what our background, our age, our education is we can always learn and grow. This year, I’ve decided to spend a lot of time on learning and re-learning. I’ve invested more than usual in courses and books to upgrade my skills. But most of all I’m learning to choose.
Learning To Choose
During a break I took a couple of months , I began to re-think a lot of things. I’m teaching myself to make better choices. I’m learning
- to chose between what to care about and what not to care about.
- to make choices about where to spend my energy and where to conserve it.
- to appreciate the power of authentic connections and to decide which relationships are important to invest in and which are not.
- to open myself up to a lot of new ideas.
But the best thing that I am teaching myself to be STILL.

This post speaks to my heart. Been working on this as I work on “Six months for Life” to create the life I want . Thanks for this.
Glad you’re making those choices, Corinne. I think we’re very fortunate and blessed that we are in a position to make these essential choices for ourselves, in a world where many cannot, simply because the power to choose is denied to them.
I also believe that inner stillness is the key to strength and it also leads us to grow into better versions of ourselves.
Good luck with your choices, Corinne! May you find what you’re looking for. <3
A choice about learning and empowering us towards self growth. Learning never stops and no matter our age, we should always embrace it whether online courses or reading for a fresh diploma or degree is what I believe. Always reinvent and be unafraid to take on learning. So well said, Corinne.
I love the choices you’ve been making, Corinne. Investing in courses and furthering our own education in areas of our interest is one of the best gifts we can give ourselves!

I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Enneagram personality theory, but I resonate most with Type 5, which is notorious for feeling like we only have a limited amount of energy to spend each day so we need to use it wisely. 🙂 So I’m all about making better choices. Great post, Corinne.
