Day 18: Live Small by Mother Teresa

mother teresa humility list

There are so many wonderful little ways to live small. Ponder on these things. Pick one to live out today.

In case it’s difficult to read, easy print is below:

“These are the few ways we can practice humility:

To speak as little as possible of one’s self.

To mind one’s own business.

Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.

To avoid curiosity.

To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.

To pass over the mistakes of others.

To accept insults and injuries.

To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.

To be kind and gentle even under provocation.

Never to stand on one’s dignity.

To choose always the hardest.”
