Why One should not be Overconfident!

I have nearly never been overconfident; because I know that… “All that I am confident about will be over one day”.  


The other day someone complimented me on being ‘down to earth’! I smiled, walked away, and winked to myself; as I know that it is less out of my goodness…and more because of an awareness

Well! I have seen people known for their ‘calmness’ screw it all in one unwarranted fit. I have seen people known for their ‘wisdom’ messing it all up in one rush of adrenaline. I have seen people known for their ‘character’ falling prey to one good opportunity to lose it. I have seen people known for their ‘expertiseaveraging it all in one rough patch of health. I have seen people known for their ‘balance’ slamming it all hard during one relationship-trouble…

…actually, I have seen ‘too much’ to hold on to the illusion of ‘control’.


So what keeps me grounded is the cognizance of all that is buried beneath the ground I am standing on. 🙂
