HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 5: “Those who find gratitude in the little things find humility in the big things.”― Lidia Longorio

I write, as I talk about frequently, every morning, a gratitude letter to Universal Power. It has big and little things on it.

I say thank you to the teachers in my life, although many times my head does not agree with that. Ego wants my teachers to always be dressed in white robes and thanking me for my enlightenment and spiritual way of being….hahahaha!

What happens, because I am here to learn these things is that I get teachers who show me what an asshole I can be sometimes and how selfish I can be sometimes and how it looks and feels to others, because they are showing me firsthand. This is a source of humility for me. To learn how to be other than that.

Just now I had a blue line under the word “asshole” from my computer. Seems that Microsoft now has the ability to tell me that this word may be offensive to my readers. Now, THAT  is humbling! Wow! I have never seen that before, and I have some language, we all know this! Oh dear…this could get interesting. I don’t know when my last update was, but that is awesome!

Another teacher to be grateful for…who knew?

I love how much the Universe loves me…how I get to say with certainty that I am God’s favorite kid…not because I am the only one, but because I KNOW it. Things are not the way I want them to be in my world right now, yet I know I am being taught. Again. So much to learn. Some days I wish there was a diploma and a ceremony to attend so I could get a bit of rest from this continual learning. Today, I am just grateful that I am so loved that the lessons keep coming. And grateful, too, that I am willing to see them and learn. All a gift, all a gift.

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
