And you had me pegged as a philosopher… Ha! Very deep, Sasscrates. It really is impossible to know in the present which of the things we don’t like in our lives are mistakes and which are blessings in disguise. The song “U Li La Lu” by the Chicago pop-folk band Poi Dog Pondering starts with this great line:
You should wear with pride the scars on your skin.
They’re a map of the adventures and the places you been.
If we like who we are now, how can we regret the choices that made us?
I love a thought-provoking morning read — thank you, Sass!
