How to Grow Humility in Your Soul 101

I absolutely love this list from Sister Mary Martha. If you have not been to her blog you really should rush right over!!

How to Grow in Humility in Your Soul

1. Shut up. Seriously (and ironically coming from a blogger), no one needs to know what you think most of the time. There are times when it is very important that your voice be heard, but frankly, those times are very and far between. Want to practice some humility? Stop talking for a day. Or a week.

2. Forget about what you deserve. You don't deserve anything.

3. Understand that you deserve everything. Including cancer and not ever finding a parking space ever again.

4. Think about making other people comfortable.

5. Forget about your own comfort.

6. Get enough sleep or you'll be too cranky to keep practicing.

7. If you haven't memorized the Corporal Works of Mercy, do it now. I'll wait.

8. Try making up a song to help you memorize them.

I should stop making a list now. It's too much to remember. Maybe try one thing each day and focus on that. OH! one more!

9. Be grateful. Count your blessings.

This is an excellent list. &:o) Accepting the fact that I need to memorize and use it is step one!

I especially like: "Forget about what you deserve."

Good find, Sou -- I read Sister's blog, too. She is a gem.
