Ponderings – Humility

We’re invincible, untouchable, on top of the world, until something or someone comes along to take us down from our pedestal, remind us that we’re not so invincible after all. Thus, we gain an appreciation of the fact that there are situations that will challenge us, people who will best us. That we’re not as perfect as we thought we were.

Such are often the necessary building blocks of humility.

Ponderings

We spend so much of our time worrying and obsessing over being heard and leaving a mark on the world. Why not instead focus on living on our own terms, creating the life we envisioned, and not caring whether or not we’re talked about for years after we’re gone?

Coincidentally, that’s exactly how those before us left their marks.
