“The best teachers are those that show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.”
I Will Teach
By Cindy Trippe Wentworth
I have learned many lessons in my life from a variety of people. Those I have learned the most from taught me in such a way that guided me to seek my own answers, have my own experiences and make this journey my own.
They did not demand that I duplicate their learning, or suggest that their way was the only way. They graciously shared their story and allowed me to garner what I would from their experience.
The Hope I Have
This is the hope I have, that my life’s story may give understanding and enlightenment to someone else’s story. I want to share myself with others in a way that encourages, inspires and invites them into an understanding of their own.
I will not demand that others walk the same road I have walked or expect them to make the same decisions I have made. Instead I will reveal the secrets life has made known to me and hope the same key may unlock someone else’s door, or at least give them insight into where to search for their own key.
Each new insight, aha moment or lesson learned is just an opportunity for me to help someone else on their journey. Therefore, I will continue to learn, and as such, I will also continue to teach.
I will remain student and teacher for the rest of my days.

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
