Currie's Gratitude 22 February 2013

It is all well and good [and of course very safe] to keep dreams stuffed away, to take them out only to play with them. It’s much riskier to speak them aloud. To put them out into the World where they can BE dashed, upended, ridiculed, and even denied.

I know this. I have it on good authority.

When I dare to voice my dreams, to ask for something from someone, to invite someone in who I am willing to share with that boldly , I really and truly hope I am NOT making a BIG and NOT-so BEautimous mistake.

But even if I AM, I choose to trust this process. To trust that I am given only “good orderly direction” BEcause if I DON’T [won’t or canNOT] trust that, well, whatever is the point?!

Life is a daring adventure, so said someone of renown, and I agree.

I’ve done things in my Life, out loud, in front of many [or sometimes only a few] and been called Brave as well as Foolish.

I’ve learned to play it safe and please and NOT, under any circumstances, Rock The Boat.

And I’ve settled, accommodated, and squish-squashed myself into spaces where I clearly did NOT fit or BElong.

Now I’ve asked for my heart’s desire. It takes my breath away…

I love you, Currie
