HUMILITY = Little Huge
During this time of year when we highlight the giving of Thanks, it is important for me to remember that I am just a piece to the puzzle, and that my piece is no more important, yet certainly not any less than anyone else’s piece. It is my complete and utter responsibility to fully fill in my piece, and to understand and see the largest picture of how “a change in one part of the system (puzzle) constitutes a change in the other.” I must be aware of how everything I do affects the people closest me, and then all the way out, reverberating throughout my ecosystem and into the world. This is humility to me. In filling in my piece, one phrase comes to mind “Third times a charm,” as in “keep going, keep trying, and don’t give up. And dammit, you deserve to have badass humans lighting you up through every single “try” and go at it. 3, 4, 12, 20. The only people who “fail” are the people who keep going - and might I add - the ones that have the most opportunities to do so. Well, here is to humility and here is to never giving up. Here is to learning, to growing, to rockin’ it out with my tribe, and to staying focused on the biggest picture in mind and heart. Remission or RE: Mission? The latter for me - every. single. time.
I fly to Chicago today, and it has been the longest period of time of not being back home to see some of my family since I moved into a halfway house in Indiana about 11 years ago. How could I not be completely grateful and humbled by all of the pieces to the puzzle in my life, being, and ecosystem who haven’t left my side on this journey - with all of the learning, growing, falling down, getting up, negotiating, great choices, not so great choices, hurt, pain, joy, and changes - I receive light, love, and opportunities in a way that I fight like hell every human gets every day. May we all learn to show up human for other humans this Thanksgiving - in the most humble, vulnerable, safe, supported, compassionate, fun, and opportunity-filled fashion known to whoa-man. Damn right, I deserve it, and so does the sexy human that crashes into you today. #beanopportunity #handled #thisonesforyou #threefornow #glitter #legendary
