“The Tallest Tree
once looked down upon
the ones smaller than he.”
Appreciate all that you have;
Be humble for all that you are.
Learn for yourself, not for the class;
And only strive to raise your own bar.
For all that you were & are just now;
Will inevitably, like all things, be struck down.
Ego is the useless residue left behind with all else removed.

Well put. To often we forget to remain humble for all we have and all we are, and get caught on the other side of the fence, forgetting how wonderful our own yard is. No matter who or what it is there is always something that is different, whether you focus your energy on those differences or appreciate them is up to you.
“Whether you focus on those differences or appreciate them is up to you” – beautifully put!!
By the way, Aviral, this was a sort of preface to the Ego topic we’ve been discussing! Things have been busy with our baby having arrived, but I will definitely complete it this week and link back to your original article! 🙂
i love this!
Thank you much!
