|BE Patient. BE Quiet. BE Amazed.|
I remember that time, BEfore I needed to TRY BEing Patient. The time when I could wait without feeling Less, Deprived, or Left Out. I remember when I simply accepted that things and especially people take time. When it wasn’t experienced as “taking time” only as How It Is.
I know that my greatest shortcoming is my regular use of Too Many Words. Spending so much time in my own company, I noticed this almost straightaway. But I didn’t really realise it for several years. And Now BEing Quiet [quieter] is my major focus, which I surprisingly lose more often than I maintain it.
BEing Amazed is almost as easy as breathing. I notice things round about me, I see Life’s magic everywhere. Since the family moved into the front house I have had such fun BEing amazed by 4 and 5 year olds. I’ve been thinking [er, assuming?!] that teaching “older” kids was what I wanted most to DO, but in the past 6 weeks of little people in my World, literally, I know that was what I thought would “win approval.” I am especially glad for this realisation…
Life sure is funny…
I love you, Currie
