In the movie 'Dead Poet Society' Mr Keating encourages his students to suck the marrow out of life. The following is quoted in the movie:
I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life...to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
~Henry David Thoreau
It is said that people regret more the things they haven't done than the mistakes they've made.
I must say that I would like to say at the end of my life that I have truly lived.
In light of that I try to stretch myself...or expand if you like. So,..
I am now officially part of the TOS Crew. A group of homeschoolers who review educational material. It is a tad scary as I have no idea what will land in my inbox, but also very exciting. I get to use material that will be given to me and then give people my opinion about it. Very cool.
Not only that, but my dh and I started a preaching course last week. No, we don't do things by half measures : )
I am sure it will be an amazing time where I will be challenged and stretched. I hope to learn heaps and that in the process other people (including the kids) would benefit from it too!!
