The Expert Was Once A Beginner January 13, 2021

Never stop learning.

Stay curious.

Pay attention and you’ll learn something every day.

The expert was once a beginner.

Aah . . . that’s better!

When I worked and started a new job, I was always impressed with the people who knew exactly what was going on and before you know it, I was one of them!

Our capacity for learning is marvelous . . . and it comes in “handy” when we’re learning to juggle tea cups and tea pots!


2. Rainee - January 13, 2021

Great advice Nancy ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - January 13, 2021

I’m in the process of teaching my self to juggle. The Cat in the Hat inspired me!

The Lorax is my all time favorite. Save the trees!

nrhatch - January 13, 2021

He’s the man!
Well, sort of the man . . . he’s the Lorax!

Rivergirl - January 13, 2021

Which lately, is even better!

nrhatch - January 13, 2021

Yup. I’d vote him into office so we could finally make some headway in protecting our precious planet.

You can never go wrong with Dr.Seuss!

nrhatch - January 14, 2021

Here’s a Seussian meme for 2020:

You’ll stay on the couch, you’ll stay in your room
You’ll stay in a chair for a meeting on ZOOM
You’ll stay in the bathroom ~ a brief getaway
There are so many places at home you will stay

Perfect! ๐Ÿ˜Š

5. Behind the Story - January 14, 2021

I have such wonderful memories of reading to my kids. I wonder if I would have read all those great children’s books if I hadn’t had kids.

One day I was sitting inside the dressing room reading a Dr. Seuss book to my grandson while my daughter tried on clothes, and the other women in the dressing room joined in. We all know those books by heart.

nrhatch - January 14, 2021

That’s awesome, Nicki. Dr. Seuss is a big favorite of mine ~ I even went on stage as the Grouch from Green Eggs & Ham!

6. Ally Bean - January 14, 2021

Yes, I agree. Seussian wisdom never fails to inspire.

nrhatch - January 14, 2021

Here’s to learning something new every day . . . including learning when to QUIT! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ally Bean - January 14, 2021

Well saidโฃ๏ธ

Humor keeps us sane! I love to be silly even though I get rolled eyes. ๐Ÿคช

nrhatch - January 14, 2021

We get extra credit for being silly when eyes get rolled at us!

roughwighting - January 14, 2021

There you go – lots of extra credits up our sleeves. ๐Ÿ™‚

8. Debra - January 14, 2021

Such fun photos and characters, Nancy. I was thinking the other day that my favorite people are those who have remained curious. It’s such a wonderful quality, and one I try to nurture. To stop asking questions is a sure sign of giving up. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - January 14, 2021

I agree. And being curious makes life more interesting.

When the pandemic started, I decided to be a “detached observer” while focusing on being “curious” about what would happen next. It has helped me maintain resilience.

9. Val Boyko - January 15, 2021

Thanks for the lighthearted reminder Nancy ๐Ÿ˜†

nrhatch - January 15, 2021

In the midst of mayhem, chaos, and political unrest, remaining lighthearted helps us keep our keel buoyant. ๐Ÿ˜€

Val Boyko - January 15, 2021

So true ๐Ÿ’
