HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 8: “Suns are extinguished or become corrupted, planets perish and scatter across the wastes of the sky; other suns are kindled, new planets formed to make their revolutions or describe new orbits, and man, an infinitely minute part of a globe which itself is only an imperceptible point in the immense whole, believes that the universe is made for himself.”― Baron d’Holbach

This sums up how truly insignificant anyone of us is in the scheme of things. Our lives are ridiculously small, and yet we live in such tremendous Ego that we believe we are terribly important and oh, so terribly busy all the time.

There are moments in life where we get to become right-sized. Not all of us can stay there. It happens again and again when we need to be put back into the container for which we are best suited. I love when I get to go there all on my own. I love writing about this stuff, because I get to be reminded, at least once every day, about what it is my true goals are in this world.

My only goals today are to live at peace with myself and the world around me. Ego has so many voices that tell me I am supposed to change everything and fight everything and be everything. I am grateful for the simple moments when I am meditating or writing or being in Nature and know I am no big deal at all.

Ego creates such a ruckus around fear and insecurity and all that junk. Who needs it? No one…but here we are, working to live without it. And it comes right back, every time. Truly humbling…every day…life is really good.

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.
