When I see life as school, my perspective on many people, events, and places changes. When I understand that everything makes its way into learning and learning keeps us growing, then I am able to find gratitude in moments I would not think possible to be grateful for.
If you're reading this, my guess is that you, too, have an internal, school-of-life Ph.D. What subject is it in? And are you sharing your learning and wisdom with others? Please do!
