You’re never too old to learn!

I’ve been spending my free time swimming. Well, actually doing more of an aerobic workout with foam weights and a noodle. The weather and the water have been awesome, not too hot…and not too cold, respectively. Yesterday I was in the pool with my mother when two “older” men got in. I couldn’t help but notice that one of the gentlemen was teaching the other how to swim. It wasn’t the easiest thing to do for either of them, but how awesome is that? I wonder why he wanted to learn to swim at his (advanced) age. Maybe he’s taking a vacation with a special someone and plans to spend a lot of time in the water? Maybe he’s going on a boat trip and wants to be able to swim so he’s prepared should anything happen? Whatever the reason, I commend him for his efforts. Many people would feel embarrassed to try to learn something new in a public place. In this case, he had a handful of people to cheer him on and a teacher with years of experience. What have you been putting off learning? Remember, you’re never to old to learn.
