While Romance might have been a difficult habit to navigate, truth be told, I’d like to retire the word humility from any language.
Look at the definition and synonyms for humility. Power and control hierarchies are built into them there words.
Especially when I know what the world needs right now is for people to show up – as brilliantly as possible and not shrink away.
The call has been made for All. Hands. On. Deck.
And right now that often means standing up, standing out or rocking the boat – sometimes by yourself – rather than fitting in or risk showing up another.
I know, I know – the notion behind humility is to not think of yourself or act as being greater than another.
But neither should you ever consider yourself to be less.
Being less than who you really are is where troubles begin.
All you ever need is to be you.
Here to share your gifts.
Full out from the heart.
Anything less and the world lessens too.
Consider the possibility that humility, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
A filter we see through.
Or a signal of feeling less than and wanting another to be less than too.
To bring them down to our level instead of rising to theirs.
Only when we just are, is there no direction to go.
More or less hold no meaning beyond just is.
There is only seeing another for who they really are and being grateful they showed up.
Perhaps old in theory, we are only beginning to find our way into being together moving forward and what becomes possible.
Living Bliss is a jump-in-with-both-feet look at where Life bumps into the everyday – whether at work, play or times in between. Bliss knows no separation in the end. From a deeper dive into the ordinary pops forward the extraordinary life we search for – and has been there waiting for us to be.
Not quite a crazy cat lady – yet? – Lorraine’s insatiable curiosity of life leads her to explore, question and push beyond the box. A self-professed “left-brained creative big picture idea” type, she has an intuitive knack for seeing possibility everywhere and in everyone, and is a moth-to-flame for being part of turning possibility into reality. More of Lorraine’s musings can be found on her blog.
