HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 30: “You’re not teachable if you’re not humble. The greatest attribute of a human being is humility because every other good qualities comes from being humble.”― Shriya Pujari

I do not do well with being teachable in many situations. I am still learning how to go into a classroom situation and be open to not knowing. That is a great challenge.

I am guilty of reading the entire text for the course before the class starts, so I can be comfortable with the material. Not sure what kind of insecurity this is, but I have it. Step 6 and Step 7 have given me this information. It has not been removed yet, so I will keep asking and work to not practice this defect. It is not an asset!

When I am humble, I can learn a great deal more. I enjoy learning new things. I love to learn things online with videos. There are so many great skills I have learned in the last year. I can’t wait to see what else I don’t know!

Life lessons can be a lot more challenging at times. I love to meet and get to know new people. I do great with one-on-one conversations and getting to know others. Not a big fan of crowds, but that, too was new information once that I have learned about myself.

The lies I used to tell were all around these things. About who I truly was and what did and did not feed my spirit. Today I am closer to the truth of all of that.

Right about now I am singing an old song from the 1960s…”Lord, It’s Hard to be Humble”…very funny song…and I love to laugh…that keeps me humble more than anything!

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.
