    ito ang isang panuntunan ko sa buhay, " He who exalts himself will be humbled and he who humbles himself will be exalted".

    When I was in grade school, I was in the top 5 percent of my class. I was fortunate to get accepted into PSHS as an alternate, and during my first year there I discovered that a lot of other students were much, much smarter than me. I don't think I even made it to the Director's List during my freshman year.

    It wasn't a humbling experience per se, since I wasn't condescending or arrogant about being smart. It was more of an eye-opener and a reminder for me about that line from Desiderata that "always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself," and that I should just strive to be the best person that God wanted me to be.

    ako wala din. agree with mikey177, isang magandang guide sa buhay ang Desiderata...

    Desiderata
    -- written by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s --

    Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
    and remember what peace there may be in silence.

    As far as possible, without surrender,
    be on good terms with all persons.
    Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
    and listen to others,
    even to the dull and the ignorant;
    they too have their story.
    Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
    they are vexatious to the spirit.

    If you compare yourself with others,
    you may become vain or bitter,
    for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
    Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
    Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
    it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

    Exercise caution in your business affairs,
    for the world is full of trickery.
    But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
    many persons strive for high ideals,
    and everywhere life is full of heroism.
    Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
    Neither be cynical about love,
    for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
    it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years,
    gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
    Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
    But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
    Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline,
    be gentle with yourself.
    You are a child of the universe
    no less than the trees and the stars;
    you have a right to be here.
    And whether or not it is clear to you,
    no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

    Therefore be at peace with God,
    whatever you conceive Him to be.
    And whatever your labors and aspirations,
    in the noisy confusion of life,
    keep peace in your soul.

    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
    it is still a beautiful world.
    Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

    GS, I see your point. However, I do hope that don't take it as a humbling-bordering-on-humiliating experience. Just take it as an experience that can enrich you as a person whereby the invaluable enrichment that you would amass, you can pass proudly to your children. Almost always, the things that are so invaluable in life come in the form of small, unoticable packages where the wrappings are not worth a second look.

    Go with it brother - I'm looking forward to chatting with the improved and wiser GS in the coming weeks.
