Things I’ve Learned (Journal Worksheet Wednesday)

Writing Journal Worksheet – Things I’ve Learned (PDF)

The inspiration for this week’s worksheet comes from Book 1 of Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations.

Who taught you how to live well?

Who taught you how to live practically?

Who are you still learning from?

Explore the teachers and mentors in your life.

And if you’d like a fun exercise, try writing about the things you’ve learned from your favourite fictional characters.

“From my grandfather Verus I learned good morals and the government of my temper.

From the reputation and remembrance of my father, modesty and a manly character.

From my mother, piety and beneficence, and abstinence, not only from evil deeds, but even from evil thoughts; and further, simplicity in my way of living, far removed from the habits of the rich.

From my great-grandfather, not to have frequented public schools, and to have had good teachers at home, and to know that on such things a man should spend liberally.”

P.S. I’m using “learned” instead of “learnt” so my American readers don’t accuse me of being unlearnèd. ;)
