Currie's Gratitude 11 March 2013



I used to think that Giving Thanks, saying Thank You, and BEing a thankful person were mostly all the same thing just with different aspects in practise.

I was wrong.

Giving Thanks is more an attitude; [and NOT merely an attitude of Gratitude, which itself is nothing to sneeze at, mind you] it’s a way of living in this World, of BEing one little bean in the whole bunch who is, No Matter What, thankFULL.

So full, in fact, that this little bean canNOT BE without BEing through those thanks. Quite amazing.

Of course, this is just my opinion and semantically, I am certain we could find [yes, I would help] the many wrongs in all I have written here.

What I mean to say is that I canNOT BE anymore without BEing through all that I Give Thanks for. CanNOT even truly BEgin my day without first practising Gratitude, in the particular and perhaps weird ways I DO that.

I don’t know [or mayBE I canNOT remember?!] what Life was like BEfore this. 

There are many such changes in me. I recall but I’ve lost the memory that is built into me of what it was BEing ME BEfore.

All I know is, Now I Give Thanks. 

Even if it’s weird or “too much.” 

I Give Thanks.

I love you, Currie

It is wonderful how faithful you are to your gratitude practice! My daughter and I email each other to write out what we are thankful for but we skip days for whatever reason.
