Yo sé que no escribí mucho este semana pasada… lo siento mucho. Estudiaba mucho español y requiere mucho tiempo y mucha esfuerza.
Translation: I know that I didn’t write much this past week… I’m very sorry. I was studying a lot of Spanish, and it requires a lot of time and effort.
Well, that’s what I’m going to write to you about today. What I’m doing right now – studying a foreign language that I’m not very comfortable with in a foreign country with a culture that I don’t know very well. It’s all different, and I am out of my comfort zone in about every way.
But that’s how we learn.
We push ourselves into new situations, into scary territory. We must be uncomfortable in order to improve. So, here I am. Immersed in a life and language completely different than my own. Pushing myself past my self-imposed limits.
After all, how else can I grow?
So how are you pushing yourself to continue learning and to do more? Share in the comments below.
