Dignity And Poise

Maintaining Self DisciplineThere are challenges in life, each and every day. Some are simple and demand little or no self discipline on our part. Others are much more taxing, maybe even painful in nature, and require all our wisdom, courage and compassion in order to deal with them.

There is a saying that the earth upon which we fall is the same ground which enables us to push ourselves up again. There is another which maintains that barley grows better after it has been trampled upon.

Human relationships are sometimes painful, but there is no pain from which we cannot recover. It is up to us to decide to live a life free from self-doubt and despair in spite of our failures.

Indeed, it is during our most humbling moments that we should show greatest poise and grace. Then the dignity of our lives will truly shine through.
