Be Humble

Hello!!

Hope your week is going by nice and smoothly as we come across the second week of the New Year.

On my mind today is the topic of being humble. I always associate being humble with being grateful because we can always remember to be grateful for all the little things in our life that don’t carry a price tag.

Being humble comes from within us and knowing that material things can never equate to long term happiness. Being humble is a way of being grateful for every single thing you have in your life and not asking for more because you know that you have enough. Humbleness is knowing that you’ve been so blessed and that everything else that may come into your life is are blessings and gifts from the Universe.

The Universe knows exactly what you need and will always provide for your needs it you believe it to be so. If you are thankful for what you already have, you will automatically attract more good in your life. The choice is always up to you, you can think in lack or you can think in abundance!

If you acquire much and enjoy material things, then so be it! Just remember to help those who are in need and don’t let your ego get the best of who you are. It’s not easy not wanting the latest trends or gadgets out in the market, especially when there are advertisements virtually everywhere.

Never let your material things define who you are as a human being because your character and the value that you provide to others is what are most important. Be there for the most important parts of your life such as your loved ones and yourself. Good luck on your humble journey through life.

 

It is always the secure who are humble.  -Gilbert Keith Chesterton

  1. “Never let your material things define who you are”. I love it!

    If only more people had this as their mantra. Especially in this age of too much and up-sizing.

    A wonderful post Kim. Truly.

  2. As hubby & I are on a year-long decluttering mission at home, humble has often come to mind. We are very much “less is more” kind of folks now…so gadgets, “stuff” and the other trappings of modern life consume us less as we consume less. :o)

  3. “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.” Humility is a path to gratitude and joy. How lovely.

    By the way, I have that exact same Kuan Yin statue in bronze sitting in my living room, and wrote about it here http://10stepstofindingyourhappyplace.blogspot.com/2011/07/kuan-yin-calling.html

    I normally wouldn’t include a link in a comment, but I was so struck by the statue, that I thought you might like this post.

  4. Being humble is about setting the ego aside. It is to treat everyone with respect and as an equal. It is also to know that everyone is my teacher.

    Great reminder as always, Kimbundance. I have been connecting more to the energy of Kuan Yin these days. So it is nice to see the lovely picture on your post 🙂

  5. I’ve been lucky in that I’ve never become obsessed with owning lots of stuff, although I have had a similar obsession in the past with racking up achievements, or at least doing things that other people would see as achievements. Sticking to what I want, as opposed to designing my life to look appealing or successful, has been a worthy challenge.
