HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 24: “To really try to be informed and literate today is to feel stupid nearly all the time, and to need help.”― David Foster Wallace

Felt this one a lot this morning. I was trying to do something semi-technical and it was hilarious, because I just do not have all the skills I need at times. A BIG learning curve for me.

And so it goes. Life is always so full of challenges and opportunities for me to be and stay humble. So full. I love it and Ego hates it, all at the same time. Good for me to be right-sized in this thing.

I love learning new stuff. It is so much fun when I feel like I get comfortable with some kind of information or using new skills.

And spiritually, all of it is new. There is always a new level of connection to make with my heart and spirit, so I never feel done there. I hope that continues because it really feels good and I get so happy in that.

I am learning at this time to become more authentic within myself. To stop horrible judgment of what I do and how I do it. Allowing myself some space for deeper healing and acceptance. This never, ever ends. And I am grateful for the learning. It keeps me vital and loving life and full of enthusiasm and joy. I love being in that space. Once in a while I forget about miracles and life feels heavy and dull. I get into trouble in those times, so I really enjoy when my spirit knows peace and contentment.

That word is WAY under-used. Contentment. Just being content. That is a great feeling for me. Today I will work only toward contentment.
