Humility is something that is not easily learned. In fact, most of the time it is quite a painful lesson. Lately I have been reminded of this more and more.

Each morning when I start my day I usually have a quick thought on this. Then I go about my day forgetting about my little thought. Then this leads to a painful day where I don't learn anything. I spend most of the time fighting and struggling against whatever it is that God is trying to teach me. Well that's great!

It is getting harder and harder to ignore these subtle cues
They are not even that subtle anymore. For the last 3 months I have been a very difficult position. Everyday it gets worse and worse. And everyday I fight it more and more. As troubling as it is I am realizing that fighting it won't work. I can only change how I react to it. Yes yes people say that all the time. Everyone KNOWS that. But when you are in the midst of something, do you really know it?

So this is me learning yet another common sense lesson. Ugh these are so hard. Hard to learn and hard to swallow.

I'm not sure what this humbling will look like. I think there is a fine line between being humble and being walked on. Not to mention my pride is in there too. Today I'm giving up. I'm going to look to see where God is showing me the lessons he want me to learn. I'm going to open my eyes, finally. I expect lots of painful growing today.

Everyone has something they need to learn to be more humble about. Maybe it's a spouse or a job or even a disease, where is it that you can be more humble today?
