You live, you learn

Alanis Morissette’s sublime album ‘Jagged Little Pill’ has been my album of the week this week. Her words ‘I recommend biting off more than you can chew’ and ‘you live, you learn’ are piercing still in their brutal honesty of a way of living which we still 20 years later shy away from, to our great detriment. This surely has to be one of the greatest lessons as we progress on our path of life, that learning does not happen when we sit still safely in our nests. Learning happens when we take the plunge and try to fly, even when we fall bruised and battered to pick ourselves up and move forward.
