In writing the title I completely forgot it was Remembrance Sunday (Whooooo! Poppy day!) and so when I remembered I was rather pleased with myself. It also made me think about how much of our day we normally spend remembering something... I suppose it's constantly. We need to remember how to speak, how to cook and how to be nice to frustrating peers. It could be debatable as to whether we need to remember how to walk or breathe - those are instinctual things, right?
But today isn't about remembering how to do things, or that I haven't done the homework due in for tomorrow (I have really, Mum). Today is about remembering people. Specific people. Today has a focus on the soldiers of the Great Wars and of the more recent wars. Many lives lost to protect the lives of others. Just thought I'd slip that in there.
Then we have the other side of it - I'm doing something which I haven't done before so I can't be remembering, right? I must be learning...surely? This brings me to think that there may be two ways of doing things - remembering and learning. You learn to remember. For example, I learn things in lessons at school to remember them in exams. THIS IS ALL MAKING SENSE. Oh my... That's a first - I'm learning!
I sort of landed myself in it here... I'm not overly sure how to finish this. Haha, am I ever? No. Well, here's my ending (sorry it's been so short):
When you do something, just think about how you're doing it - are you remembering or learning? And after you've done that task you're learning, can you just remember it or do you have to do a bit more learning first? So many questions... Feel free to have a ponder. :)
Hope you're all well! I'll try and post something soon. :)
