THE GENUINE BEAUTY OF EDUCATION
Learning is a matter of acquiring knowledge, information and skills. But the process does not end with just memorizing the words or concepts. It is tested on how we use and apply these learnings. Education helps beautify the world that we live in. Because through education, proper learning and appropriate application, humankind have invented so many things that made civilization progress and develop in almost all aspects.
People have to constantly learn so as to help improve their life and for the betterment of the world that we live in. When we continually learn, we improve and as we improve, everything around us improves. But we have to keep in mind that learning is not only limited in the four corners of the classroom. Instead, learning can be acquired all around us.
Every day in our life we learn and realize a lot of things that allow us to improve as an individual and help us grow as a person. This learning may be a personal one starting from the time we wake up, from dealing with the family, with the children or with the parents. Out of the circumstances in our life, we become better individuals.
Education aims to beautify a person in all aspects. Not only to beautify the physical well-being but instead the whole package. This includes beautifying the mind of a person to think optimistically not just for personal benefit but for the benefit of all. Education beautifies the heart of a person to give hope to humanity that everybody can become better than before. Ultimately, education is the beautification of the inner and outer feature of an individual.
