neither laughable or arrogant
humility is not stooping lower, making myself smaller, than I am and neither is it extending myself to standing taller than my actual being. humility is recognizing myself (goodness, funkiness, mistakes, and gifts) and neither pretending that I am more or less than I am–acknowledging both my strengths and weaknesses, my gifts and wrong doings. so for me to say i am courageous is neither arrogant or laughable for though i have acted cowardly in moments and in doing so have caused great harm, i am actually courageous. i will walk in who i am–acknowledging and forgiving my weaknesses and wrong doings and acknowledging and embracing my strengths and gifts. i will walk in who i am and make amends.0
guess not. attempt at amends rejected. courage dissipates, my weakness abounds.
