The subject of this weeks Drop in the Ocean is humility. This word usually has a positive connotation, to be humble is a good thing right?
But how does one become humble? Most commonly humility is achieved through life lessons. Those life lessons that humble you, or worse, humiliate you.
So what's good about that? Sometimes there's nothing good about that. Sometimes it's a lesson you REALLY needed to learn and sometimes there is a silver lining involved.
This is a complete the story contest. Think of an instance in your life where the Universe said, "Nope! You're getting too big for your britches ....I'm going to have to take you down a notch!"
It can be from any time in your life. It could be an instance where you learned a valuable lesson, there was a rainbow after the storm or it was just plain humbling.
Feel free to take as much creative license to change the actual events as you wish. It can have a comic twist, a moment of insight, or a rush of feeling. The end result just needs to be a short story about humility.
You can use as few or as many words as you like to fill in each blank. Each blank will have a corresponding number, in your comment write the number of the blank and then your answer.
