Humbled by the company I keep

I’ve just gotten off SKYPE where I’ve been in a 90 minute group conversation with three other people, skattered around the world, and I am humbled. Humbled by the company I get to keep, in various areas of my life.

There is so much human potential available within each and every one of us. Being in the company of people who are aware of this, and who are making the most of their own human potential – I lack words to describe the feeling I have from such experiences.

But if I try, humbled is one word that describes my feeling. Humbled, and with a great sense of hope! And humbled for me here is a positive feeling, getting to hang out with magnificent people, being a part of this group on equal footing with each and every one of the others. Receiving and sharing so much, being vulnerable and human.

Below is a quote by Marie Curie that speaks to the hope that I feel, because I am in the company of people who do just this. They are open to expanding as human beings, and at the same time, open to the expansion of humankind.

Do you ever feel humbled (see explanation above) by the company you keep?
