Humble Human

Learning curves are the waves of your life. 

We are surrounded by mounds of knowledge from which to learn, relearn, contradict with ourselves and others, and once more reorganize our reasoning for life. 

There is nothing wrong with that. YOU are here to evolve more than once in a single lifetime!

It’s okay sometimes to say that you don’t have all of the answers. The universe is here to teach you that you will always fathom more than the socially conceivable. Yes. You deserve more. Yet, the lovely universe also wants you to know that it’s not all about you

We’re in this together.

Be nice! Be respectful! And don’t put too many expectations on others; sometimes even we disappoint ourselves. 

Please remember humility.

Do you remember that time when Universe put you on your butt, just to show you that you’re being a little too extra? That could have been the moment you hit rock bottom. Or maybe the lesson was a little more subtle, like a tiny epiphany during a conversation with a stranger. Life doesn’t want to teach you humility every now and again. It wants you to remember so that you don’t have to fall so many times! 

Humility is the way one understands how important we are to each other. It’s a way to take life a little less seriously because we can’t control everything. It’s a way to enjoy the smaller things while we’re in route to acquiring the bigger things. Humility is that fresh of breath air for someone else… not just you; because sometimes we all need a break from the typical human experience.

The most humbling experience I’ve had was being a restaurant server. It’s not like donating, or giving your time to help out the unfortunate. It’s like struggling to grab your own life on the inside, while you’re smiling on the outside. 

You’re smiling when your table asks you for an item EVERY time you come back to them. You’re smiling when someone cracks an offensive joke. You’re smiling when some perv grabs your waist. You’re smiling after someone tips you 3% off a bill, because you have more clients to attend to. You’re smiling, and apologizing, when someone yells at you over food that you didn’t cook or drop off to their table. You go home, scrub off the dried food still stuck on you from a few hours ago, and the cycle repeats. 

I’m sure the 9-5 rat race is no easier, but there is a special level of empathy someone gains after working in a restaurant. If you ever want a crash course in humility, become a server. After all, I’ve had clients throw a fit for not calling them ma’am, mrs. whatever, or dr. who cares, because they feel so honored on their first visit to be recognized above others. Typically those individuals who expect to be treated like royalty barely ever tip like royalty… Humility.

Humility is that balance between knowing you are amazing, and knowing what to do with your amazingness. It says, you deserve better, but please remember to teach others this very lesson. As you are the influencer in your world, you have the responsibility to influence wisely through your power.

Yes!! You have POWER! Awaken, my love!

Know your power. Understand how to use it in as many ways as you can. Allow humility to be the guide of your embracing journey. Then you will see that you have no weaknesses; just a new way to see the paths ahead.

Inspired by the worlds around me, I'd like to show you all a bit of insight from my corner. Truths are a matter of perspective, and I'd like to get to the bottom of us all. In the end, it is after all, about US!
