Promise of a new Day

The first element of greatness is fundamental humbleness.
—Margot Asquith—

Recognition of the magnitude of creation heightens our awareness of the small but essential contribution that we each offer to the whole. We come to know that we are necessary to its completion, thus we are special. With that knowledge we are quieted, softened, and secure. We are at peace.
Sensing the meaning of our own existence enlightens us about others’ value as well. This knowledge fosters love, respect, and acceptance of another’s unique personhood. Each attempt at nurturing another is, in turn, an act of self-nurture.
The road stretching before us looks long and will often be rocky. We’ll inch along at times. But when we remember our value, our unique necessity to the whole, the rocks will easily be sidestepped and our pace will quicken.

I will breathe deeply the realization of my meaning. I am needed by the people I meet. And I will recognize their value to me.
