Humility vs. EGO

image

Dear ABU DHABI,

You have exercised my patience, flexibility and tolerance. For that I say thank you.

You have stretched my thinking beyond what I know to be true. For that I say thank you.

You have provided me with an abundance of time with myself. For that I say thank you.

You have brought me closer to my source. For that I say thank you.

You have filled my pockets with a little extra money. For that I say thank you.

You have reminded me of what’s most important in this world. For that I say thank you.

You’ve revealed my ego driven habits. For that I say thank you.

You have eliminated many of the distractions that kept me from evolving. For that I say thank you.

You have provided me with a new global lens in which I now view the world. For that I say thank you.

You have forced me to practice the act of surrendering. For that I say thank you.

You have reminded me of existing inequalities around the world. For that I say thank you.

You have reminded me of how fortunate I am to be an American. For that I say thank you.

Your location has afforded me unforgettable travel experiences. For that I say thank you.

As I lay here almost two years later pondering my return home, I feel pretty dang good. This has been the biggest challenge….well opportunity of my life. For that I say thank you.

I am an even better person than I was upon my arrival July 2012. For that I say thank you.

Sincerely,

A man who has been exercising HUMILITY since his arrival and has OFFICIALLY retired his EGO.
