It’s humbling to lose your job and then have to apply for more menial work that is well below your usual salary or skill set.

It’s humbling to have to rely on the government to make decisions that will significantly impact your finances over the next six months.

It’s humbling to have to restrain your normal social activities in the interest of public health.

It’s humbling to not be in control, just when you thought your future was nicely planned out.

But it’s OK to be humble.

To understand that life doesn’t always go according to our best laid plan.

To realise that there is a big, wide world out there that doesn’t resolve around us and our perceived needs.

But in your newfound humility, please don’t forget:

  • You still matter,
  • Resilience isn’t built in the good times,
  • We will get through this,
  • You have the ability to make the world a better place,
  • and, “Humility, like the darkness, reveals the heavenly lights.” Henry David Thoreau
