Today more than ever we need to take a step back and look at what we can and what we can’t do.
This reminds me of a piece of wisdom, an old mentor shared with me a long time ago.
Sometimes when we’re feeling important.
Sometimes when our egos in bloom.
Sometimes when we feel we are the best-qualified person in the room.
Sometimes when we feel that our going would leave an unfillable hole.
Just follow this simple instruction and see how it humbles our soul.
Take a bucket and fill it with water.
Put your arms in it up to your wrists.
Take them out and the hole that remains, this is a measure of how you’ll be missed!
We may splash all you please as you enter.
We may stir up the water galore….,
But stop…..and we’ll find in a minute, It looks just the same as before.
The moral of this is quite simple……
Do the best that we can…..
Be proud of ourselves.
There is no indispensable person.
