Ordinary People

From the song of the title of this entry,

"People often think that they're special..."

We all need a little humility in our lives sometimes. Well, a lot of it actually.
Sometimes we believe we're born destined to take the world by storm.
Born to walk with the weight of the world between our legs (or is it shoulders?).
Born to have the world centre its attention on us.

Yes, we all can make a difference in the world today or in whatever we do when we put our heart to it.

BUT...

as Henry Van Dyke had put it, "When once you have tasted flight you will always walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward: for there you have been and there you will always be."

Getting up there is one thing. Staying there is another.

Really, at the end of the day, a little humility can separate the great from the good. Maybe even the bad.

Because, if you can't, to quote from the same song of the title of this entry,

"We're just ordinary people"
