Humility & Grace
Being humble is easy when you don't feel that you deserve the good things that you get. The result of hard work should be a sense of satisfaction, and accolades should be readily accepted, but often they are not. Living with a sense of grace is not an easy feat. Not sweating the small stuff is easy, but what about not sweating at all?
I find it quite difficult to get truly excited about anything any more. Excitement used to come quite easily to me, but now that I feel myself maturing, it seems to take much more to impact me internally. The positive outcome has been a sense of inner peace, but the implied negative is a corresponding sense of apathy. Is apathy necessarily negative?
