There are two crucial actions which might be simpler stated than completed. One is displaying true gratitude. The opposite is being humble.
Though the 2 are distinctly completely different actions, each are the measure of a lifelong learner. Each require you to tackle the views of others, being understanding, and approaching the unknown with an open thoughts. It’s about being grounded, embracing change, and diving headfirst into tough conditions, even when it means straying into uncharted territory.
Of late, I’ve discovered it more and more essential to make lists of victories and losses and replicate on them so as to verify how I could be extra grateful (or extra humble) in several conditions. It’s solely pure as our life progresses that we accumulate new experiences, experiences that mildew us into the particular person we develop to be. The expansion is lifelong, and the journey by no means ends.
With these new experiences come the strongest feelings: hope and heartbreak. Resilience and restlessness. Love and loss.
No two individuals have the identical set of issues they're grateful for or must be extra humble for. Each particular person has their very own set of core values, completely different priorities, and ranging strengths and weaknesses. The significance doesn’t lie in our variations, it lies in how we method and form our personal individuality.
Mine would go a bit of one thing like this:
Thanks to all of the individuals who taught me that life is about remembering to stay within the second. Life is about taking dangers regardless of the stereotypes and regardless of different individuals’s opinions of you. Thanks to the individuals who taught me that life is simply too valuable for poisonous relationships and friendships. It was good whereas it lasted, however thanks for displaying me that I’m price a lot greater than that. I’m price greater than hurtful phrases, second ideas, or being an possibility. Life is simply too quick to remain quiet, so be open and make your voice heard.
To those I damage or did fallacious, I’m sorry for all of the occasions once I ought to’ve stood up and stated one thing. I’m sorry for falling quick or letting you down while you wanted it. I’m sorry for being defensive once I was too scared to confess that I used to be the one within the fallacious. I hope someday we will sit down and discuss it. If not, I hope you already know that you simply taught me so many priceless classes and a lot reality together with your phrases and your actions.
We’re all human, we’re all able to doing each proper and fallacious, nevertheless it’s how we derive which means from our actions that defines our lives. That's what in the end provides us the facility to apologize, however to additionally say “thank you.”
