    My Perspective

    To me one aspect of humility is the ability to look at ourselves objectively, admitting our errors and the willingness to correct them. Some mistakes cannot be corrected, so a humble well-meaning apology is in order and simply making the effort not to do those things anymore...

    Humility Is Sexy.

    I don't think there is anything more attractive and comforting then knowing someone who realizes that they are not the center of the universe. I feel that people like this appreciate life and the relationships that they have a lot more. Some of the arrogance that people have make...

    I Value Humility

    I am human just like everyone and am not perfect and neither is anyone else. Which to me means I am no better then anyone else and can learn from anyone and anything.

    There Is No Greater Lesson In Humility Than Suffrage!

    Something For Me To Strive For!

    Better Far Better To Be Humble

    I find it simple and better just to leave as much of my EGO at the door, when I interact with people. More often you will go farther than if you feel that you have to defend everything you do. Case in point. I was at the DMV today. How it works is they give you a coded number and...
