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

Our different experiences that we have here on earth are always allowing us to see things in a different light. These experiences allow us to see the good, the bad and the ugly. We get to transform our minds into seeing what’s out there and what lies ahead of us.
My Personal Transformation
For me, I feel like I’ve transformed my way of thinking about life. Instead of even being judgmental, critical and irritated, I try my best to think of being happily grateful in the present moment that I am in. Although I haven’t always had the best attitude at everything that I did in my past, I have brandnew days to become a better person and constantly improve what I do.
Snapping Back to Reality
Some people use a rubber band or hair tie to snap them back into thinking about something more positive and I think this is helpful when you begin drifting off into negative land. This allows you to remember to snap back into the present moment and enjoy every single thing. Sometimes we may be in a situation where nothing is enjoyable for us or we’re in a conversation with people who are gossiping and using that rubber band allows us to remind ourselves that we are not to judge other people. This ability to come back to the present moment is transforming our minds and allows us to come from within and remain humble and grateful.
Start small and don’t get discouraged when things aren’t going the way you planned. Just come back to your center (your humble being) every time your mind drifts off. Say simple phrases like, “I am ok” or “I am abundant” These phrases help us to generate good thoughts into the universe. Think how amazing it would it be if we all started small by thinking positive thoughts and thus generating blessings throughout the world? We would begin to radiate more love, peace and light to the whole universe and what a transformation that would be.
See each day as a life-changing transformation and keep improving!
