Currie's Gratitude 21 November 2012

If you want the BIG fish you have to get into deeper water
You have to BE braver
Take your chances

I’m not much of a fisherperson. Never have been really. It has seemed always to require the sort of effort I find to BE too ambitious. For ME.

And yet sometimes I want to “catch the BIG fish” in my Life. When I have a dream that asks me to get out into the deep water I almost always hesitate and then leap, toes and fingers crossed, willing the whatever to smile favourably on me.

Lately I have been looking at that practise. Asking myself if it’s really how I want to proceed. This means I need to take a little more time. Wait. Pause. And just Allow Life to peel itself back enough for me to get the perspective I need.

Since I sold GraceLand and BEcame a bus-person and walker, I have slowed way way waaaaaaaaaaaaaay down in my leaping. Most of what I hurried to DO and the stuff I felt I HAD TO, as in I MUST-DO!!! wasn’t necessary. NOT really. My brain tries, still, to convince me otherwise, but Now, when I canNOT just GO or DO I almost always get that it’s a gift.

Catching BIG Fish?! Deeper water.

I love you, Currie
