Because it’s an all time favorite quote and mantra, so much that it gets a spot in my
zen corner. It’s the first thing I read in the morning and the last one I read before bed. The act of being humble-- sometimes it comes naturally; maybe there's some work involved; or let's face it, it might not be there. To me it means to thank those who helped you along the way; to reflect on your growth; to appreciate what you have; and to know that anything you have can be taken away-- whether it be money, a relationship, health, etc.
Attending @danikabrysha’s Brunch Series made me reflect on this quote once again. At the event, which brings women in the community together for a vulnerable and real self-care workshop, I was reminded that everyone struggles within. Behind the facade of how we look and our actions there are feelings. And as unique as we think our stories are, they aren’t. We are all going through something(s). The entire experience was extremely humbling, thought provoking, beyond motivating to continue to be a work in progress at creating and living our best lives, however we define them. ————————————————————
This mantra can be relevant for all of us in so many ways. Let's all take a step back and give credit where it's due, appreciate what we have, and be humble. Then feel all of the feels and work on bettering ourselves from within. Using this quote to combine a sense of gratitude all while shining light on your strengths and acknowledging your wins: This week's challenge is to reflect on something you're "successful at" that others might not be or have (feel free to share).
