In Others’ Words: Humility
“Life is a long lesson in humility.” ~James M. Barrie, Scottish author
There’s a choice to be made as I grow up–and yes, grow older.
Am I going to be all about me, me, me? Am I going to push myself to the front of the line, to the center of the stage–doing whatever it takes to ensure the focus, the limelight is on me?
Or am I going to step back … way back … saying, “You first.”
Will I be content in the chorus while you play the lead?
I know people who display humility –a true expression of considering others more important than themselves. They are some of the most truly beautiful people I know, a beauty that radiates from the inside-out.
In Your Words: How has life taught you humility–to consider others more important that yourself? (I’m not talking about humiliation.) Who do you know who displays true from-the-heart humility?
