You know why life is so exhilarating?

Cuz wherever you are (physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally, financially, hakol'ly), you can CHANGE and you can GROW. Every situation that you find yourself in is an opportunity to emerge better. Every rock thrown at you is a stepping stone in order to reach higher planes. Every kick, a chance to flex your muscles. Every stab, a space to plant.

It's awesome. In the "awe" sort of way, too.

In unison now--Ashreinu, ma tov chelkeinu, u'ma noim goroleinu, u'ma yofo y'rushoseinu. ["How fortunate are we, how goodly is our lot, and how pleasant is our fortune and how beautiful our heritage".]

It was a good line, and appropriate just now. The Dearly Beloved calls the little dance done here with the lulav "whirl, stab and jab." (He was used to a slow and loving ceremony in our Chassidishe past life.) Next time he gets poked with one o'them things, I'll quote you.
