What exactly is education? Today, many view it as an opportunity to learn, thrive, and excel in the world. Others see it as a necessary step toward obtaining a piece of paper that ensures one’s entrance into the professional world. Regardless of your take on it, however, one thing is certain: From a very early age we are forced into a system that demands our presence and attention for hours a day and for years of our life. Each child is required to learn an accepted version of #reality in order to fit into the specific mould desired by the elite. Just like #television, a large part of school is simply programming, and we don’t really #learn much about the world — or ourselves.
Perhaps this is why #MarkTwain said, 🔺“I have never let me education interfere with my intelligence,” or why Einstein told the world to “never #confuse education with intelligence,” and that “ #education is what remains after one has forgotten one has learned in school.” #School these days seems less about learning and more about rote memorization. Are we critically thinking enough, or questioning enough? Or are we simply being bred to become #robots, all of us entering into the same human #experience, “educating” ourselves in order to further perpetuate a broken system? We learn concepts and ideas that fit within the current #paradigm and structure of society, but not about how to care for ourselves and become well-adjusted #adults. Are we really being educated? Or simply groomed to become ‘good’ consumers? “I don’t want a nation of #thinkers, I want a #nation of workers.”
– John D. Rockefeller🔺
Another problem with the current education model, as pointed out by world renowned education and creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson, is that it was designed and conceived for a different age. Today, new information and discoveries are constantly emerging in all fields, questioning what we once thought we knew, and that includes how people learn. Unfortunately, unless you have an amazing teacher who is passionate about our world and new #information, children suffer in this system.

“Family” isn’t defined only by last names or by blood; it’s defined by commitment and by love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other’s backs. It means choosing to love each other even on those days when you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up on each other!”
- David Willis

(JUSTGIVING LINK IS IN THE BIO)
On November 5th, 45 of my clients will be joining me in completing the extremely challenging Winter Wolf Run! I'm fortunate enough to train with clients who are at completely different ability levels; this makes this Winter Wolf Run such a huge challenge for us all. We have decided to dedicate our efforts in completing the Wolf Run to raising money for the charity MIND. This is a charity that supports Mental Health in every way possible. 1 in 4 people suffer from mental health, whether it is through anxiety, stress, depression, body dysmorphia amongst others, which often lead to fatality. Many people have to face these things alone and often find themselves alone in a battle against depression and anxiety. By supporting MIND, we hope to enable people in need to get the support and assistance they require, allowing them back on to a path towards happiness and fulfilment.
Any contribution, big or small, will be massively appreciated by us all and will go to a fantastic cause.
