Happy Teacher’s Day
Teachers’ Day in India is observed on the birthday of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan that falls on 5th of September every year. On Teachers’ Day we express our love and gratitude for our teachers. In this journey called life, with all the ups and downs, our teachers have stood by our side, solid as a rock.
Since our birth, we’ve watched many teachers walk into our lives. Our parents are the first and the best teachers we can ever have. The time, effort, love and care they have invested in us cannot be compared to anything and the lessons which they teach us are the ones which mould us into better human beings.
We express gratitude for all of our teachers and are thankful for their teachings. But there is one teacher who is overlooked, despised and underrated — life. All of us have been guilty of cursing at the lemons life has handed out to us. But isn’t it true that as time passes, the suffering converts into valuable lessons? Lessons which we carry with us for the rest of our lives?
Life is that one infallible teacher, with endless patience who will continue to teach you until you learn and stick with you, no matter how bad you perform or how broken you are. Life will never stop teaching you — it will never give up on making you understand that “The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows — it’s a heartless and nasty place. It doesn’t care how tough you are; it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.” Nothing is going to hit as hard as life. But it is never about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winners are made.
Somebody aptly said — “Your best teacher is your last mistake.” The moment you start learning from your mistakes and imbibing those lessons you picked up by overcoming the obstacles thrown your way that is the moment you begin living your life.
Happy Teacher’s Day Life!!
