Humble pie, coming right up!
We humans seem to swing between two ends of the humility spectrum: false humility and forgetting humility. False humility is actually low self-esteem, low self-worth. Forgetting humility is an exaggeration of self, it’s arrogance. Neither are expressions of true self.
How do we find true humility? Can we land in the middle of the spectrum?
Maybe we find that sweet spot when we admit what we don’t know and are willing to let go of what we think we know.
True humility is the posture of a child and a willingness to open oneself to an expanding and evolving understanding of the universe, our own knowledge and experience.
What “we know” right now is temporary, passing, and momentary. We don’t have to know it all. We can’t.
We can choose to eat our humble pie. A slice is there to serve us while being served to us.
Join me in this podcast episode as I share a personal story of the painful consequence of my own arrogance, the quest for true humility, and learning to appreciate humble pie.

Humility is not thinking less of yourself but rather it’s thinking of yourself less. — C.S. Lewis
