Always speak of the past, gratefully.
Of the future, excitedly.
And of the present, Gayathri, with bobbing eyebrows and a Cheshire grin.
Spiritual politics, baby -
--- The Universe
I sometimes know, in the moment, when Yet Another Fucking Learning Experience occurs, that I will be grateful for it, but in that moment, I'm just so angry and annoyed at the Universe, I'm even angry about knowing I'll be grateful later.
But today, I'm grateful for the events of my past, for they make me the person I am right now, and she's awesome. (In many definations of awesome, btw!)
