“Every moment in life is but a chance for you to learn a new lesson.”
I learned a new lesson today. Better yet, a new inside look at myself. After, what seemed to be, a 30 minute outward expression of an internal rant, I looked at myself like “holy shit. I thought I was passed this.” I am seriously unhumble. Not humbled? Lacking of humility?
