Currie's Gratitude 6 October 2012

Whether you can carry a tune
Know the words
Or you are the ONLY ONE
Step Up
BE Bolder
And never hesitate to
Try Again

It is a strange World we live in. In one corner there are the planners and goal-setters. They are concerned with grades and scores and percentages. Statistics give them indecent pleasure. They seek to have more letters after their name and more titles in front.

And in another corner are those who just wait-and-see without a care in the World. They despise pursuing anything and often go along or NOT, depending on nothing.

Then, scattered in and among the above, are the bright lights. The surprised and surprising. The quiet ones who never seemed like they’d “amount to anything” ever. They often surprise us with the way they make new trails, find out how to make things work better, differently, and in remarkably extraordinary ways.

Wherever I fall, today, or wherever I did, BEfore Now, there are a few things I know to DO. Those things that, by themselves might BE ordinary and rather bland, yet together make magic:

1. SING and DO so LOUDLY.
2.STEP UP and in and along; just don’t sit idly by waiting for an invitation or a reason.
3.TRY AGAIN. Despite Yoda. BEcause I CAN.

I love you, Currie
