Cultivating Humility, pt. 3: Thank You

The final practice for cultivating humility, according to the UC Berkeley Greater Good article is to cultivate gratitude. When we can stop in the midst of life and realize the blessing of being alive, or having faith, or seeing the beauty of the leaves turning orange and red and be filled with gratitude then we will stay grounded in a deeper place. Humility is about staying rooted to the earth, the ‘humus’ or dirt of life. The obvious phrase for cultivating gratitude that helps us be humble is, “thank you.”

So now my little ‘humility triptych’ is complete: “I’m sorry,” “I’m okay,” and “thank you.”
