The gift of optimism

Learning comes at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected places. The lessons I have learned so far came in a variety of ways. Stories told by my parents, grandparents, pastors, teachers or other adult mentors. Tiny acts of kindness from total strangers. Gifts of love from children. And many other ways as well.

After reading this Globe and Mail column, I am reminded of the many things I've learned through experiences that I might have otherwise passed off as insignificant. May I never cease to learn and grow by watching and interacting with the world around me.
