A Moment of Acknowledgement

"It is very easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements in comparison with what we owe others". - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

If I have achieved, it is because others have nurtured the potential in me. If I have succeeded, it is because others created space for me to succeed. If I have reached goals, it is not a tribute to merely my own tenacity, but a tribute to the guidance and teaching of others. I am not a product of my own creation, but a product of thousands of conversations, encounters, and holy moments with others which have touched my life and changed me forever.
