Stripped down to the bone…

Sometimes we need to be knocked down from our high horse in order to learn an important lesson. We live our lives careless and unaware. We get so used to the day in and day out of mediocrity, familiarity, comfort. Not a care in the world. Humility takes a back seat and we forget ourselves, our identity, our purpose.

We need to simplify our lives. Life can be a little complicated as it is. Humility is an important part of healing, and moving on. You have to strip yourself down to the bone and start from scratch. Put ego, or your refusal of acceptance aside, in order to advance.

It’s impossible to move on to a life that isn’t worth holding on to. A life that is filled with pain, hurt, and regret. A life that isn’t going to get you anywhere. One must let go so they can receive what is waiting for them. What they are entitled to. A life stripped down, simplified, and worth living.

“Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility”. – Saint Augustine
