30 Days of Thankfulness, Challenges

Day #29 – I’m thankful for the opportunities to earn an education

In a previous post, I shared that I’m thankful for the freedom to choose. As a part of that freedom, I chose to become educated, and I I choose to be a lifelong learner. This is because the world is full of great things, ideas and people, and I’d like to learn about them while I’m along for the ride called, “life”. I enjoy learning at the University, and I also enjoy learning through interaction with people, the Internet, and exhibitions.

I want to focus this post on the fact that I am thankful that I have been educated through all of these means, and I am grateful to everyone who has taught me. I am one of the few of the billions of people in the world who is preparing to work on a doctoral degree, and has the time, knowledge skills and abilities to write scholarly essays and articles. I think that it’s safe to say that most of the people in the world could care less because they have to concern themselves with caring for themselves and their families and therefore don’t have the time, resources or opportunities to earn an education. And that’s okay, because there’s nothing wrong with providing for one’s family.

But, I’m thankful that I can use the education I’ve earned to help others in their areas of need.

God, I thank you for blessing me with the opportunities You’ve given me to become educated.
