i am small

March 13, 2010

it seems that as i get older i get, the more i become aware of my own insignificance. and by insignificant i don’t mean a hopeless, i’m-useless-and-won’t-amount-to-nothing kind of way. instead, i guess i’m becoming aware of how little i really know, how much there is to know, and how i will never learn all of it. i’m also beginning to acknowledge that despite all my humanly efforts, i’m going to meet challenges that are bigger than me…and that sometimes even if i do everything right, there are some things beyond my control that can come and kick me in the butt. but it’s also important  to know that a person can control most things about their lives if they’re smart.  however, living life requires faith and hope that all your little efforts will lead you somewhere.
