Our Greatest Friend
I do not do humility best! I am either reserved or in your face and do not really hang out somewhere in between at times. I think being humble is right up there with having patience, which is to say I struggle quite a bit with both! I am respectful to myself and others though, which is a plus in my favor.
I struggle when it comes to accepting help from others. I am stubborn and independent. That is okay! However, I am learning to lean at times and ask for help and support in my life from myself and others.

I get all akward and tongue-tied when it comes to being humble; especially if it pertains to being in the spotlight. I think part of the akwardness comes from being shy in situations like this and that it is out of my comfort zone. I think part of the akwardness comes from being modest and respectful and in doing that do or say something incorrectly or improperly. Not a pretty place to be!
I know the benefits of being humble are many! Humility affects your happiness and growth as well as your successes in your life. I am trying to connect/foster humility in my life and become a more humble person. It is finding that balance!
