August 19: Humility

This life has a way of teaching us to be humble.

Just when we think we have made it, accomplished all we set out to accomplish, attained the greatest heights we possibly could have, our world comes crashing down.  It happens to everyone, sooner or later.

We all suffer losses and defeats.  It is what we become, having suffered through our hard times, getting back up and dusting ourselves off, and going again, that makes us great.  Remaining humble throughout the process, realizing that at any time we could lose everything, while enjoying and sharing the reality of our triumphs and successes, makes the process even more beautiful.

Realizing and remembering that when we are experiencing moments of greatness, it is usually with the help of others that we have become so, is of the utmost importance.  It is important to remember everyone who helped us all along the way, making today’s version of who we identify as a possibility.  Of course, we are ultimately responsible for ourselves, our choices, our reactions, our realities and our lives, but it is through the help, love, and miracles in our lives provided us by others, that our lives our truly great.

When in moments of greatness or success we are mature, wise, and thoughtful enough, to thank others for their help along the way, that is humility.

Stay humble.  Stay kind.  Help others.  Celebrate the amazing person you have become.  Strive always to become better.  ALWAYS be upgrading.  Help and empower others along the way to do the same.

Today I will choose to be humble and thank those in my life who have helped me along the way.
