The Things Ms. Frizzle Taught Me

Blanka

 

If you have young kids, you probably know the Magic School Bus TV show. Magic School Bus can transform itself into many kinds of things and it takes eight students together with their teacher, Ms. Frizzle, on educational adventures through human bodies, rivers, clouds and volcano’s to name a few.
In almost every Magic School Bus show Ms. Frizzle would say “It’s time to take chances, make mistakes and get messy.”
I’m a very cautious person. I need to gather information before I make a decision and will never say yes to people offering me products or services over the phone. I’ll do my research first and then decide.
Well, as much as it makes me feel safe and keeps me away from potentially bad decisions, I’ve learnt that sometimes we don’t have time to do our research and we have to trust our guts and make the leap of faith.

In those moments I can hear Ms. Frizzle’s words:

Take Chances
Because otherwise you won’t be able to discover your true potential and you will stay in your safe bubble away from the life’s wonders.

Make Mistakes
Because they’re the best teachers. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes; embrace them and learn from them.

Get Messy
Literally; don’t be afraid to get down on your knees and get your hands dirty. We have laundry machines, soap and water.
So, is 2014 going to be your year? Then listen to Ms. Frizzle’s words and get on Your Magic Bus.
