Speak Your Mind or Inherit the Earth

with one comment

I hesitate to blog because it seems rather egotistical.  Who am I to put the contents of my mind into the world when there is so much of the world I have yet to learn?  Blogging is release, but at the same time, it seems a betrayal of a value I greatly wish to embody:  Humility; to be open to ideas rather than to stubbornly hold mine; to know that I know nothing so I may learn anything (and everything)… from anyone.

Worthless is he/she that does not speak his/her mind, but at the same time, it is impossible to speak your mind without sometimes speaking over others.

Confidence is vital to expressing one’s self genuinely, but just across a fine line… is arrogance.  I have sought a certain confidence for much of my life.  That confidence has only recently (last year or so) taken root in my personality.  Yet, with the gift of confidence, I fear I am losing the gift of humility.  It would seem that to be confident and humble simultaneously is to involve one’s self in an intricate dance–a dance that comes easier to some than to others and that only few master.
