The Oxford Dictionary accentuate humility as a low self-regard and sense of unworthiness.
Humility is the quality of being humble; and to be humble is not to think less of oneself, but to think of oneself less. Do you know that humility is frequently associated with being too passive, submissive or insecure.
How many times are you made to feel that way (that you are insecure or passive) when you think of yourself less over someone else for a cause. This couldn’t be any further from the truth!
Know that humble people on the contrary are quite the opposite – instead they are confident and competent in themselves so much that, as a result, they seek to self-actualize by helping theirs. They are still self-efficacious; they just don’t feel the impetus to boast about themselves but instead, let their actions speak for their ideals.
Let me remind you again “ To be humble is not to think less of oneself, but to think of oneself less.”
Here are 13 Habits of Humble people:
⚡️They’re Situationally Aware….
⚡️They Retain Relationships….
⚡️They Make Difficult Decisions With Ease….
⚡️They Put Others First….
⚡️They Speak Their Minds….
⚡️They Take Time To Say “Thank You”….
⚡️They have an abundance mentality….
⚡️They start sentences with “You” rather than “I”
⚡️They accept feedback….
⚡️They assume responsibility….
⚡️They ask for help….

A realist, always fond of things that are real and matters. The lover of writing and a staunch reader, growing up with a burning passion of writing. I always have a pen a pad with me, life is a story that I never want to miss writing about. It always fascinates me when we are categorized as introverts and extroverts because that on its own is the reason behind every personality. I grew up being referred to as an “introvert” and I later understood the personality behind it: quite, reserved, peaceful, creative mind & thinking; antisocial and very analytical. Being in that space I always knew that as a writer or reader you cannot do that in a noisy or busy place; you need a quite and peaceful environment. It is interesting how I found myself being able to fit all that I love doing in this space that I find myself loving because I fit so perfectly (besides the stereotypes, it is the truth): they all fit, my list is endless but what I know for sure is that “I am born an artist”
I am married to my loving and supportive husband for 23 years, Collen and we are blessed with four children; three adult boys; all grown ups and the youngest teen daughter who is still with us and in high school.
I am University graduate with a B.A degree in Social Science (majored in Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology), graduated with MBA in Sports in 2011. Worked for more 13 years until 2009 when we began our diplomatic life as a family. What I am grateful for is that there is always a bigger plan and things happen for a reason. Although mostly often, we do not have answers; all that matters is that we share those experiences and life lessons to inspire and lift others up. This is my passion and I am thrilled by challenges; good or bad and my mind likes solving mysteries that I believe are real; sometimes hidden and not spoken about. My favorite authors Danielle Steel and Agatha Christie always challenges my thinking and approach in life. I began reading their books from 14 years and I am still their fan reader. They share their stories in writing and as someone who likes sharing, I quickly connected with them
My life is all about the real world: family, marriage, relationships, health, children, parenting, spirituality, cooking, leisure, travel, reading, writing, engaging, connecting, encouraging......I love sharing
Sharing is golden
